speedy drugs do cause u to sweat more...but lack of a drug//ie mild wd that some experience during sleep due to 8 hours without their doc..can cause a sweet, acrid odor...dunno...may need to figure it out by a process of elimination

It is crystal meth.  It smells sickeningly sweet and the stink is taking
over in the northeast.  People even are so brazen as to smoke in public
restrooms.  It stinks and like smokers they can't smell themselves due
to being used to the stench.  But, some people pretend that it is some
innocuous clove cigarette.  Big difference one stinks enough to make you gag the other is mildly sweet.

My husband is a crack addict.  He sweats and smells like a metallic, melted plastic, kind of smoky smell.  It is a distinct odor.  Our mattress, our sheets, clothing...everything smells like this.  It does not go away....

I agree, it is a chemical smell, somewhat sweet w/ ammonia. Crack accelerates sweating and it gets in your clothes. I have been around people where the smell is so bad that it burns your nostrils. Bad hygiene doesn't help either. Crackheads are not overly concerned with bathing. But even if they do, it will come through their pores and urine. Very bad smell.

I don't know if you noticed, but this is a very old thread, just FYI.  Usually the older threads don't get as much attention as the current ones.

Just wanted to make sure you're aware of that!
