look at the arms and see if u see where they have used needles. it will show if they are using needles. and to if they wear long sleeves all da time it is anothe way of knowing if they are using needles.

well sounds like shes using. My sis n law does drugs and when shes using meth she will sit and pick at her face and shes got sores all over her face from that crap. but she lies and says they just come on her face. yeah they come there cause of the crap she puts in her body. but sounds like shes using meth also. if her teeth are rotten out then yes its meth. look up crystal meth on here and it will show u the affects it does to a person. we have tried to get her some help but shes in denial and want get help.

Does she seem a little out of sorts? Does she have this glassy eyed look? Slurred speech? How about her nose? Is it red all the time? Has she lost a lot of weight. Does she seem to pick fights?
If she is doing any of these things she is on something. Most likely with the scabs she is on meth. They will eventually start getting violent, and hallucinating. IF her nose is red and raw more than likely she is snorting. If her teeth are nasty and falling out she is smoking. They can shoot up in other places besides arms. they also shoot up in the neck, hand, feet and legs.Best thing you can do is talk to a lawyer and maybe social services about drug testing.

If you value ur kids safety and love them dearly then please get them out of that situation. any person who has children and one parent or other is on drugs the one that dont do it fight and get them out of that mess. its the kids who suffer from that crap. trust me i know my brothers wife is a burn out light bulb on them damn things. shes got 4 beautiful children that range from 9 yrs old to 19 and shes never had custody of them til the daughter has turned 13 yrs old. she got her back due to her granny got sick and no one would care for her. These kids has been strung one crack house to another when they were younger or she would leave them with her family for months at a time. she didnt care and still dont care for her kids. so if you love ur children then dont stop til u get them out of that mess with the mom.
I think it is a shame

Sometimes when people are shooting up, and they don't want anyone to know, they will shoot in between their toes and fingers, and sometimes in their butt cheeks.

sometimes they even shoot up between their toes, especially when trying to hide it. Unfortunately, it's so sad.

Put her name on here and see if you can get help finding the truth. Also if people know you are worried they can help watch her actions when she has the kids. Tell social services they need someone else to supervise visits. Make them do their job. Ask for drug testing.

That's retarded. Peoplee shoot up in a vein. Not to many in butt cheek's. Legs and feet are most common places to hide it

I have been dating my boyfriend for 6 months now and I'm really concerned he has been shooting up. He told me that he did in his past but he went to rehab and no longer does. He locks himself in the bathroom for hours at a time and gets really mad if I knock on the door. He claims he has problems going to the bathroom. And the sink or shower is always running while he's in there. He has bruises on his body on his stomachs hips legs ect. I can't tell if they are track marks but he always makes dumb excuseses on how he got them. The few times I've asked him if he shoots up he's gotten very defensive and angry. He also starts acting different when he comes out of the bathroom I feel like. His moods are always up and down. He's really nice or really mean. Every morning he starts gagging like he's going to puke. I don't know if I'm paranoid or what but I've never had these suspicions before. I can't seem to find any proof is the problem. How do I figure out the truth? I get myself so upset over this matter! Someone please help me!!

You should just leave him. Are there any children involved in these? If so, leave in a hurry.

You don't want your daughter anywhere around that stuff. Keeping her safe is your duty. From what you say there is for sure something going on. Get her out of the situation before you end up being the next casey charles.

ok so my deal is my husband quit his job a little over a year ago and now hangs out with people that only use the needle. Now I know that he does meth, cause I have caught him but he said he quit. So I am afraid if he is hanging around with people that use the needle, that he will start using it. I am worrid about him. No children in the house but I have seen a whole different side to him here lately. He is always gone and when he is here, he is mean and threatens me. I am packing my stuff now but I have to wait till my rent trailer becomes available. Which is the 1st of Feb. I have a feeling he is using the needle and I am concerned for him. I don't get close enough to see marks cause he is never nice anymore.. I guess the only way to see is to catch him in the act. But I am not going to be around any of them.. What to do?
