Smoking crystal meth is bad.
Can cause lung irritation that sometimes doesn't go away. Also predisposes to infections in the lungs, sinuses, and gums.
Antibiotics would be helpful and pretty darn necessary pretty soon in worsening infections. I cannot say in your particular case wihtout an exam.
Good time to stop; can say that though.
