Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I think that smoking meth and drinking alcohol to a point of being dependent on them might make your physiological health to deteriorate as well and make you to have a very hoarse throat, due to infection - pharyngitis. Although this is treatable with antibiotics, if infection is the cause, going off of the substances is the grass root treatment that you need to have to end you misery with having bodily symptoms. Please consult a psychiatrist or your local doctor to have yourself detoxed from these drugs. In the meantime, it might be helpful to use over the counter medications to help with the symptoms.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
