Heavy v. recreational?

Posted by amd on January 10, 2021, at 17:06:11

Often you see descriptions saying that "heavy long-term use" of cocaine or methamphetamine can cause lasting damage.

It's never really clear what "heavy" means here, nor what "long term" is?

If you smoke meth one night every other month, or if you're a weekend warrior when it comes to cocaine, does this count as heavy? Is heavy daily use? Is small dose every day considered light, even though it's daily?

I'm honestly curious how researchers generally quantify these things.
