Long term effects Suddenly and without warning, a few days or even a year later, the brain can produce flashbacks: feelings and thoughts that replay the effects of being on the drug. And because mushrooms disturb the normal functioning of the brain, it's important to note that some longterm effects like psychiatric illness and impaired memory have been reported.

The bottom line Because it's a fungus that grows in the earth, some people may suggest hallucinogenic mushrooms are natural and okay to consume. But nature produces a number of plants that are instantly poisonous and can cause injury or death. By disturbing and potentially damaging the normal functioning of your brain, mushrooms definitely fall into the category of a dangerous, natural poison.

Tik is one of the fastest growing drugs in South Africa and has even been "marketed" as an easy way to lose weight – making it attractive to non-typical drug users as well.

What is it?

Tik is a neurotoxin that is manufactured in illegal labs – such as kitchens and garages – using ingredients easily bought in supermarkets. Over-the-counter cold medicines and other ingredients which may often include toxic substances such as anti-freeze, are "cooked" in meth labs to make methamphetamine. Tolerance to the drug develops quickly and addicts constantly need more of the drug more often to feel any relief.

The Risks and long term effects Tik is often seen as a drug that will improve your looks, help get you in shape, and make you popular – but the reality is that Tik ravishes the body and controls the mind. Addicts become gaunt, unkempt, they have sunken eyes, wounds on the skin, and sores in and around the mouth The bottom line A person addicted to Tik will give up everything to get hold of the drug in order to reach their high – they will lie, cheat, or steal to get more of the drug.
