Scary Book

I just finished reading Tweakers.

It tells the tale of how crystal meth is taking over the gay culture. I have never been so scared reading a book.

I know it won't interest most people, but I just liked the detail the author goes into to explaining the drug, how you make it, how it affects the body and the brain, how it's impacted culture.

I had a friend, a room-mate, who was addicted to crystal 10 years ago, and I had no idea what he was going through. If I knew then what I know now it would be different, but I remember back at that time just being afraid because I couldn't figure out what was going on with my friend.

He just literally destroyed his life in a matter of months.
