How To Spot A Meth Addict…

This happened about 16 years ago when I was in college. I did not realize what was going on until I read an article about Meth production yesterday.

We were taking a biology class together. He was probably about 15 to 20 years older than me and could very well be in Jail by now. 

He always smelled like cat urine  – and I mean in a really bad way.My curiosity has often been stronger than social taboos so I asked him about it. 

He told me that he lived with an old lady who had a lot of cats.   That never quite rang true with me but I never knew why until I read the article mentioned previously.  i couldn’t understand how day after day his clothes would smell so strongly.  Did he never wash them? 

Turns out that one form of meth production produces a smell similar to cat urine. When I read that, the memory came rushing back.  I cannot be one hundred percent that this is what happened but I am pretty sure it is.

A lot of meth addicts need help with their breath and teeth too!  Most of them have never read an oramd review or are aware of tonsil stone removal to stop bad breath. 

You have probably heard what happens to the teeth of a meth addict, much less do they care about their gum tissue health.  But, if they did, they would probably want to get a Hydro Floss Oral Irrigator.  Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss, as you might know.

There is an excellent book on dental health entitled:  What You Should Know about Gum Disease, ISBN: 978-0981485508. Pick up a copy for the folks in your life  – and NO, they do not have to be “meth heads” to benefit!
