However there's a reasonable amount of food for thought in some of those numbers. Namely that group who have binged for more than 48 hours in the past 6 months but have no difficulty stopping or going without.
Well, they say they'd have no trouble stopping. Loadsa people say that.
That's a high proportion who seem to have it under control, considering the hype it gets.
I think 55% of frequent users self-reporting problems with friends and family, their health, or both, is very high. To be honest, I wouldn't particularly trust the ability of frequent users of methamphetamine to self-assess.
On the other hand, there's a large majority of users who never get to the state where it's a real problem, but as Damian indicated, the proportion of people who do get a problem seems higher with P than anything else I've ever seen.
Isn't that almost entirely about individuals not consciously valuing and respecting their bodies?
They said they had it under control, anyway. Also, the statistics are limited to 'frequent users'. I couldn't find how frequent. Once a month is quite different to 5 times a day.
Hallucinogenic substances can have a terrible effect on anyone & everyone ..Even Russell Brown >>
Sorry couldn't resist Russell.Its been a while.
Sorry Sofie that's not what I meant... I meant drugs that correlate with violent crime - alcohol is number 1.
@Damien - where is the August Metro ?
