‘I used to be a surgeon,’ he whispers despairingly as he injects himself with crystal. – From ‘Tweakers: How Crystal Meth Is Ravaging Gay America’
In “Tweakers: How Crystal Meth Is Ravaging Gay America,” new from Alyson books, Los Angeles-based journalist Frank Sanello uses case studies from actual users to explore the world of crystal addiction, painting a terrifying portrait of the inevitable downward spiral associated with habitual use of methamphetamine and the epidemic levels the drug is reaching in gay men. “Tweakers” also examines the hundred year history of crustal meth and its effects on the brain.
Sanello writes in the book’s introduction, “Although this drug is not discriminating about whose lives it will destroy, crystal use has had a particularly devastating impact on the gay community, “Tweakers” is an attempt to get to the bottom of this destruction – while also providing hope and help for those who suffer.”
