Nearly 300 people responded, describing their struggle to get clean, and the ongoing battle to stay sober. When I first gave up heroin, I could never tell myself it was forever.
'He was forty-six.' That caught half my attention – the same age as me.

I don't know how well that'd work out though Not to mention if the law wanted to be cunts they could lure lonely people into bringing drugs to a place and then arrest them for possesion and probably distribution because of the plans of doing drugs together Although I've only met one person through bluelight, I know people have created great relationships (of both sexual and platonic/drug taking nature) through BL. I don't mind going to doofs and meeting some lovely ladies, but they are generally a bit too young and immature and you just can't conversate the way you can with people who know a bit more than "yayyyyy these pills are grouse".I could not imagine never entering that cosy cocoon again."My father died from addiction, we lost a cousin, I myself had numerous overdoses and helped prevent siblings from OD-ing (all of who are now clean thanks to the process of one addict helping another that Russell Brand spoke of). I'm pretty sure it started the same way most relapses do."This is what scares me late at night: If somebody like Hoffman had gone so long without smack (heroin), and just jumped back in one day – how close am I to doing the same? It is unbearably wonderful for surpressing pain and generating a false sense of well-being. Addicts who say "I hate heroin" are lying to themselves.Hearing about Hoffman affects me the same way as if it were a friend. I live in real fear that I'll relapse, and being so much older now, there's no way I'd survive this time around."I was a high-profile model and intravenous heroin addict. We wouldn't stick needles in our arms daily if we didn't love the way it made us feel.While I know people in the industry who want to vote for someone who will protect them financially, I’m looking for a person who will make sure my 17-year-old brother doesn’t get killed someday because he’s half-black.If that means I lose 50 percent of my income every year, so be it.
Preconceived notions and “one size fits all” thinking litters the world of chemical dependency, but you can’t lump all addicts into one specific category.
