Memories of a Heroinhead

Posted on the 12 January 2014 by Calvinthedog

Great blog!

Fascinating but highly disturbing blog by a current heroin addict. This blog is very well written. Fortunately he makes enough money as an artist that he does not have to turn to crime or prostitution to pay for his habit. The posts are amazing. Heroin has pretty much trashed this guy’s life in a number of ways, yet he is utterly unrepentant about it and he wouldn’t have it any other way. Sadly this is typical of heroin addicts. An addict will be on his deathbed, dying of some illness related to heroin addiction, and he will still not blame heroin for his plight. He praise heroin until the last light blinks out on his existence.

This is because the high is so great. The high is so fantastic that the addict will do anything to get it. And he keeps loving that high til the very end no matter how much trouble it gets him into.

I know people who have taken this drug dozens of times without getting addicted. They told me that they didn’t even like the high, so obviously it is not for everyone. They told me that the high is very “floaty,” and after a while, you get pretty sleepy. Like a lot of drugs, it tends to make all of your problems vanish into thin air, which is after all why a lot of people take drugs in the first place.
