“It kills a part of your body, it kills a part of your soul, so you just can’t feel happiness anymore. You have to make a choice not to do meth before you are offered it. Just turn around and run, don’t stop, it’s just not worth it”.

“I had been awake for 8 – 9 days, the paranoia inside my brain was unbearable. It leaves your body in 24 hours, but never leaves your mind.
It destroys your life. It messes with your head. You lose everything”.


“We went from having full cupboards to nothing. It was my best mate that offered me meth. I guarantee if you even try meth once, it will mess everything up – your whole life. Don’t ever try it – not even once”.


Make a personal decision to never take meth. This will give you the confidence to say “NO!”, get to safety and stay away.

Know your reasons WHY you would never try Meth

Remember this

Make a plan to help keep you safe

These are just some ideas. What’s important is to do what works for you. If you need help, talk to someone you trust.
