Stimulants are a particularly dangerous type of drug because they can be extremely addictive and manipulative. By design, stimulants elevate the user’s heart rate and awareness levels, which might trick them into thinking they are “better” than they were before. All the while, the stimulant can cause more and more permanent harm to their brains, hearts, respiratory system, and more.
