One asks... Does that whole Faces of Meth
thing that shows a persons physical facial features drastically change from averagely attractive to a gaunt, sunken-in skelator like appearance where the persons face has aged rapidly over a short period of time subside after discontinued use of meth? or is the ex-user's face permanently affected by this look?
wasn't a heavy user, although used on a long-term, regular basis.
3-4 yrs. using once or twice a day via snort, then for the last 6 months of use
was smoking it. But swim is a lightweight and gets a tweeky strung-out feeling
which makes her feel weird, but liked the initial pick me up. So equivalent
to 1 line and 3 hits off pipe a day's worth for the past 3-4 years.
* Swim was NOT a picker, and never ever picked at the skin or did anything
to mess with the face or skin. Swim regularly washes face and brushes teeth and
practices good hygiene, but has noticed in the last few weeks leading up to
quitting, he face became tired looking, with eyes looking sunken in and puffy, skin
texture looks shiny even after washing and powdering. Just lacks that luster that
it used to have. Swim noticed this the most after staying awake all night or 2 nights
and was usually exhausted and was attributing the Faces of Meth look to not
getting any sleep. But Swim has stopped all use a week ago, and face doesn't
to be going back to it's normal appearance. Is swim stuck with this old haggard
look, or as the body detoxes and secretes all the toxins from the body, gain back
a more healthy facial appearance?
hope someone can answer that actually knows and not just giving their opinion.other swimmers face/skin do this and then go away after quitting?
Thanks for your responses. I appreciate them very much!
