I did this article to deter people from even trying heroin or ever even picking up a needle. I tried to not highlight or tell war stories of my past however I did want to express the overwhelming decline each and everyone heroin user has experienced. For anyone trying to kick heroin I would suggest soboxin (an opiate blocker which really helps detoxing)if you are serious about quitting. I use to trade dope for soboxin to all those junkies with " rich parents" that paid to get this medication for them and then go right back to using. Now I sometimes live in regret that I used to get my one friends soboxin and he passed away from an overdose. I would not recommend substituting with other drugs while trying to get off heroin. It made things worse for me anyway. Anyone who has ever been through years of addiction will always have that craving for the sick life that became all to familar for too many of us. For anyone who is struggling right now and it seems like quitting is impossible, just know that it isn't. I know any heroin user that has read this has detoxed many times and ends up going back, the pain is something we learn to live with. You have to make a choice to live and be able to control your own life oppose to have a chemical live through you. I see myself as lucky for i have seen too many friends die, go to prison or continue to use. I wish everyone the best and I hope that maybe I helped atleast one person by doing this article.
