THE BASICS OF TINA AND THE USAGE METHODS
“Tina” is a commonly used nickname for methamphetamine within the gay scene.
Other nicknames include T, crystal meth, ice, tweak, meth or glass.
Some pills — such as Yaba, Desoxyn and Captagon — also contain methamphetamine.
Tina is an upper, and belongs to the same group as phenethylamines.
Ecstasy, MDMA, speed and 4-FA belong to the same group.
Tina is a chemical substance and a powerful stimulant.
Its effects are similar to those of speed, but it is much more powerful than speed because it acts directly on the brain.
It can make you feel horny, focused, confident, euphoric, omnipotent and alert.
Once its effects wear off, you may experience depression, irritability, restlessness and exhaustion.
Insomnia is another common experience.
Tina usually comes in the form of a crystalline white powder with a bitter taste.
But it is also available in pill form or as transparent crystals in a variety of colours.
Tina dissolves easily in water or alcohol.
You can snort it, swallow it, smoke it, booty bump it or slam it (inject it).
