I lost my best friend to heroin. There is nothing cool about it, I promise.
The opiate based pills that so many people gobble these days are the same thing. Pill users like to kid themselves about that.
Information about opiate use and addiction isn't top secret. I'll never understand why a person would choose to make a perilous left turn down Opiate Way, knowing it's a bad street.

Agreed on the perils. And well-said, D. But where is this thread coming from...?
Just wondering if I missed something other than MIS going Defcon8 on Billy, with Spicoli attempting to referee.

Josh was a legend the day I met him. My friends Kieth, Eric, and myself were in the locker room after gym carrying on like we always did when the new kid came busting through us, flipped over onto his back, held a lighter to his a$$, and out came a big blue flame. We loved it of coarse, and he invited us to his house after school that day. We went. He quickly became my main homie until we lost him at 27. He had a knack for reciting great stories in our lives that I didn't remember, so when we lost him, a chunk of these crazy/funny stories went with him.
I love you and I miss you Josh. I hope we can still have a beer in heaven, whatever or wherever that may be.

Good luck finding affordable rehab. The only thing that saved the junkies in my family was being tossed in the hoosgow for a few months. What a coincidence that there's another conflict in Asia and another heroin out break in Yoo Ess. Mission Accomplished.

"The dealer is a man with a lot of grass in his hand, but the Pusher is a monster...God damn the Pusher man!" That goes out to all those M.D.s out there giving out scrips of Oxys. They are worse than the street thugs. Sorry for your loss Doug.

Someone, elsewhere, insinuated I was glamorizing heroin. At that time I wasn't. Do I make some off-hand, pro-drug statements? Yeah, I do. But I actually warn people on here who got problems, and even extend a hand to anyone who wants to listen. And I have also exposed my life, including my downfall from drugs, so if anyone thinks that's glamorous, well that's on them.
Actually most people on here glamorize drugs. Alcohol is praised as the almighty on here. Alcohol kills more people than any other illegal drug....combined. It creates arrogant, violent douche bags like no other drug. Behind every domestic disturbance is a case of bud and a bottle of Jack.
And people get involved in opiates because they think that trying it once isn't going to hurt them. But, they dig the feeling, and continue using. I'm not going to sugarcoat this: opiates(in the beginning) might quite possibly be the best feeling on this planet. That's why people continue to use when they know what lies ahead. Then EVERYBODY hits a point where the stuff doesn't get them high anymore.
And no, contrary to media propaganda not everyone who tries opiates becomes addicted. And there are people who can maintain recreational use, as they don't have the brain wiring that turns others into fiends.
And the North East doesn't get dope from Asia. It comes from South America.
