hi. meth smoking means methamphetamine smoking.. which is neurotoxic and can lead to parkinsonism, it can alsolead to cognitive defects like memory, impaired attention, and executive function, u may loose your tooth quickly, your lungs and heart may be affected and can lead to pulmonary hypertension, loss of appetite and digestive problems, insomnia.. so it will affect almost all the systems of the body. i advic eyou to leave the meth addiction go and get consulted to a doctor nearby you and get routine check up done.. may be u need to join a rehabilitation centre. dont worry your addiction will be completely cured as there are many drugs available to control withdrawal symptoms and rehabilitation.. take a strong resolution.. there s life beyond it..
