as a powder. Habits and mannerisms that are noticeable in someone
who is uses methamphetamines include compulsive behavior, inability
to sit still, and agitation. Addicts who use the drug often stay
up for days at a time and may never stop to eat or clean as a

clinical depression, and cognitive impairment.
