How to deal with Tweakers

This gives us a nice list of 'how to deal with tweakers'.

:rolleyes:

People who abuse Meth regularly are known as 'tweakers'. Tweakers often behave or react violently. Keep in mind, the tweaker may not have slept in three to fifteen days and may be irritable and paranoid. If the tweaker is also using alcohol or other drugs, the danger may be intensified.

The tweaker craves more Meth, but no dosage will help recreate the first rush. This may cause frustration and leads to unpredictable behavior and violence. To support their habits, tweakers often participate in spur-of-the-moment crimes, such as purse snatching or burglaries.

Tweakers are often involved in domestic disputes and automobile accidents. They may also be present at raves or parties. They may at first appear to be normal. A closer look will reveal eye movement ten times faster than normal, a voice with a slight quiver and jerky movements.

If you notice that someone is tweaking, be careful how you handle the situation. Keep in mind these six safety tips for approaching a tweaker:

1. Keep your distance. Coming too close can be perceived as threatening.

2. No bright lights. The tweaker is paranoid and bright lights may cause them to react violently.

3. Slow your speech, lower your voice.

4. Slow your movements. The tweaker is paranoid and may misunderstand your movements.

5. Keep your hands visible, or they may feel threatened and become violent.

6. Keep the tweaker talking. A tweaker who falls silent can be extremely dangerous. Silence often means that his paranoid thoughts have taken over reality, and anyone present can become part of the tweaker's paranoid delusions.

If you are threatened, call the police and tell them that this person may be under the influence of Meth or other drugs.

I think they left out:

* Don't get them wet
* Don't feed them after midnight

One must wonder

- How do I deal with a tweaker, while holding glow sticks? Suggestions two and five come into direct conflict

2. No bright lights. The tweaker is paranoid and bright lights may cause them to react violently.
..
5. Keep your hands visible, or they may feel threatened and become violent.

Combined with the fact that "They may also be present at raves or parties.", this is something that is bound to happen?

Do I keep holding my glow sticks? do I throw them away quickly? will he be distracted by the quick moving glow sticks and attack them? or will he attack me for moving quickly to throw them?

quick, someone please advise!

I wonder if they ever considered the fact that a person may be acting slightly paranoid due to the fact that he/she is approached out-of-the-blue by this weird, slow talking yet multi-question popping, hand-displaying, baratone faking fool, whom despite being in the dark, refuses to come close enough to be fully seen, yet insists on maintaining a conversation.

I want to see the list of things a tweaker should do to deal with someone who thinks this sort of list is useful.

e.g.

1. pretend that you appreciate the fact that he/she is speaking slowly as this is a comfort to them.

2. Be sure to keep a constant dialogue with them as they are frightened by awkward silences.

..and so on...

I am shocked that the Prairie View Prevention Council's website has the appearance of having a slight anti-drug bias.

I expect balanced reporting from the Prairie Council, an example of which are my two favourite articles by them from last month's issue:

1) Are the 2005 Saskatchewan Roughriders better than the 2005 Colt's? Yes!

2) French Lick, Indiana-- North America's Dubai, with down home protestant values

This is also from that site:

People who are on Meth will show one or more of the following signs:

-Thin from weight loss

-Pale face

-High body temperature with excessive sweating from cooking their internal organs

-Dental decay

-Body odor of glue or mayonnaise

-Acne type sores from scratching

----


My question is:

Who smells like mayonaise?

i saw a pack while hiking in the jungle around spadina & college. it is important to remain calm, and under no circumstances run, that sets off their predatory instinct. make yourself small, and back away slowly. if that doesn't work, twitch, speak erratically, and enage them inane conversation. they;ll continue on for hours, once distracted make your escape slowly.

don't forget you camera! tweakers are an endangered species.

I never really had an interest in trying crystal before, but having now learned that meth usage may result in me smelling like delicious mayo 24/7 I am reconsidering.

I wonder what someone who is addicted to eating mayonnaise smells like?

why the rolleyes? none of it seems overly preachy or unreasonable to me. meth is a big problem out there, ya know? it's probably useful for the everyday non-druggie to know how to identify a user and how not to freak one out? especially if they are looking for info on how to deal with a family member, or someone close to them.

I have never had any real use for Tweakers...
Although highly amusing (sometimes)...

I wonder though, do they smell like Miracle Whip or Hellmans???

depends how much candy they're eating. If they eat a lot, the sugar content will make them smell like miracle whip :D

the best way to deal with tweakers is to create a thread that attracts tweakers and let them hang out in it

it's really nothing like anything described up there. let's see what I can remember from 99.....

maybe the eye thing is true. other than that, you talk and talk and talk and fucking talk more, not too fast. you dont need people to speak differently than they normally would. if you have a gf that happens to be joining you on your bender, you WILL have the best fucking sex of your life, bar none. this will actually teach you how to become a better lover in the rest of your non high life. you never really argue ON the drug, the personality change comes a couple days after you're done. and that goes away fast too. you will eat NOTHING. Ive force fed myself some broth before because I had the presence of mind to know I needed 'something'. after a while, you need to sketch out. everyone has their own methods. mine was downloading things. songs, porn, etc. I never watched or listened to anything at the time, but the downloading was the thing to keep me occupied.
I have work to do. I'll add more truth later.
