A man who claims he quit smoking meth just one year ago has shared a startling progress picture of the transformation.

Writing on Reddit, user 'Minnesotapolis' wrote that he "quit crystal meth almost one year ago" and shared a progress picture which shows the difference made in the last year.

"It's crazy how much can change", he added.

"One of the greatest things about being clean is that I got to be sober to see my sister have her baby girl".

The user is now clean for one year, and shared his experiences of recovery in the comments section, writing that there is "nothing worse than craving a shot" during recovery.

Writing about the feeling of being high, he said that "IV meth use is the most beautiful and the worst thing I've ever encountered".

A year ago, he had shared his lowest point with the platform, writing that he was "devastated" over a relapse. "I'm completely disheveled and I'm an absolute mess", he wrote at the time.

Fellow redditors congratulated him on reaching his first milestone, with one writing "I salute you for being brave enough to post this".

When questions on his relationship status, he revealed that he is currently single, joking "I'm awkward now that I'm sober".
