FOR THE LOVE OF SEX –
March 6, 2023 – Despite efforts to raise awareness, the problem has only appeared to grow worse as meth-related overdose rates continue to increase in the U.S.
According to data collected by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, from 2015 to 2017, the percentage of gay men surveyed who reported using meth in the previous year was twice as high as straight men.
In his memoir, “Tweakerworld,” which is being released Tuesday, Yamas describes the experience of living in the drug-fueled “party and play” subculture in unflinching, gory detail from the unique perspective of both a one-time addict and drug dealer.
He said he hopes his story can serve as a warning for those who might encounter this subculture without fully understanding the potential ramifications of meth and GHB use.
