Methamphetamine can seriously affect one's relationships. To a user of methamphetamine, the drug may become more important than relationships with family, friends, etc. As a result, these relationships may deteriorate or be destroyed completely. There are many stories about meth addicts stealing from their loved ones in order to fund their drug habit. While some of these stories may be somewhat sensational, there is no doubt that this tragic outcome is certainly a possible consequence of methamphetamine use. On the other hand, methamphetamine addicts may form relationships with other users, though these bonds are typically quite tenuous.
