New York club kid turned superstar tech/ electro DJ Keoki issued a blood-curdling warning this week aimed at people tempted to dabble with crystal meth, in his online blog on Myspace.
If you think you are strong enough to resist addiction or have friends who use say they are; get this; its not about being weak or strong its about being smart or dumb, Keoki declared.
Meth burns your brain cells out and if your brain cells are being burned then you cut your chances of being smart enough to quit every time you inhale, snort, slam or ingest.
Admitting hed used Meth himself, Keoki talked in graphic detail about some of the amphetamines ultra-extreme side effects such as a mucus that builds up in the face that gets so bad your eyes cry slime and even suggested US authorities could be involved in the supply of rogue batches.
Meth has become a plague in our country and the world, I beg everyone and anyone who uses it to please do whatever it takes to get help, he pleaded, If you dont use but are curious about trying it and think you can control this drug; forget about it. Run away and stay away from meth, he advised.
Oliver Chessler aka The Horrorist, who collaborated with Keoki on a track several years ago, told Skrufff he became addicted after a drug dealing next-door neighbour tempted him into smoking a hit, after hed drunkenly complained about the neighbours noise.
The fucked up thing was, a few days later, he knocked on my door, met my wife Julie and said Ive got a present for you guys and handed me a bag of crystal. We did it, had sex for five days and ended doing it regularly for a year after that, he confessed.
Nowadays totally clean and based in Berlin after completing rehab in New York, Oliver revealed hed gained 35 pounds in the 12 months he did meth (you never stop drinking) and lost control in a way hed never experienced before.
I never thought I had a drug problem before crystal, I was having fun, I was in my early 20s and at the time I had big hit records, plenty of money and there was no problem, he continued.
If you do crystal and you have sex with somebody youre never going to stop doing it, theres no way. Why would you? Youre like lets stay in Heaven. Its kind of like cocaine without the effect wearing off and without you feeling disgusting, you just feel great, he added.
And thats the bad thing, theres no bad part of crystal when youre high. With cocaine you start paying the price five minutes after doing the line, youre like fuck, this sucks, give me another. With ecstasy, youre on one day then crying the next but crystal is like five days up, five days down, its warped, said Oliver.
