This Man's Astonishing Physical Transformation After Kicking His Drug Habit Has Been Seen by 3 Million People
A Redditor going by the name Minnesotapolis posted before-and-after photos of himself that shows his jaw-dropping physical transformation after he stopping doing meth . The photos have quickly gone viral and have already by viewed more than three million times on Imgur alone.
This is what he looked like about a year ago, in a police booking photo—covered with scabs, bloated, and sickly pale, with deeply haunted eyes. It's a familiar gaze for anyone who has struggled with drug abuse personally or through a family member or friend.
Pictured on the right is what he looks like now, after completing his tenth stint in treatment. The transformation is simply incredible.
"It's not like I woke up one day and was like, 'oh yeah I'm just gonna shoot meth and destroy my entire life,'" he said. "It's a sick and ugly progression."
He explained the physical toll meth takes on the human body in his Reddit post. "The reason my facial hair was so depleted was because I never ate, so my body lacked the nutrients to properly grow hair," he said. "It also goes with the open wounds and scars on my body now. "
He finally decided to get help after he almost committed suicide.
I was homeless on and off for the last 4 years. I got into a slew of legal trouble (multiple felonies and misdemeanor charges). I finally had just had enough one day and I was going to jump off the Smith bridge in St Paul. But the police stopped me and brought me to the psych ward. I ended up going to treatment for the 10th-ish time and it's stuck so far.
"I can't even describe how badly it hurt my family," he said. "I lost Almost all of my friends, but they're slowly coming back into my life."
He said he now plans to focus on his family as he continues to get healthy. "One of the greatest things about being clean is that I got to be sober to see my sister have her baby girl," he said.
