How addictive is crystal meth?

The myth created around methamphetamine is that once you take it you become addicted. This has created fear in people across the world. It is not a surprise because it is premeditated by overzealous governments to create such fear even though they know the truth. Some highly placed people in society actually do use meth themselves.

I think I am in the best position to talk about meth addiction because I am a medical doctor who has used and quit meth in the past. Fortunately, I also tried some other drugs at one point or another in the past.

The truth is that most other drugs have much more potential for dependence than methamphetamine. Therefore, addiction is relative. In 2013, research by the National Drug Strategy Household Survey in Australia shows that:-

40% of substance treatment in Australia was for alcohol addiction.

24% for Cannabis.

17% for Methamphetamine.

7% for Heroin.

People do become addicted to methamphetamine, like every other drug, but it is not the most addictive drug around. Among methamphetamine users who use regularly, only around 10% to 15% are dependent compared to 50% for heroin users and 95% for cigarette smokers.

‘’Compared to some other drugs, methamphetamine has moderate dependence potential. The rate of dependence among users is probably similar to cannabis’’, the research said.

"However, because of the significant brain changes from methamphetamine, once someone becomes dependent on methamphetamine, they often find it very difficult to get off. And we don't know who it is that will become dependent and who won't."

Research shows there was a year between when people first started using ice regularly- weekly or more than weekly- and when they started experiencing problems including dependence.

However, it's hard to predict who will become dependent and who won't. And once you are dependent, it is quite hard to get off because of how it affects your brain.

The key is moderation and self-control.
