An Honest Conversation With a Heroin Addict Video
Question: “I have a few questions concerning addiction. I am a recovering heroin addict who is having a hard time dealing with the compulsion to use again. I was curious to your stance on 12 steps programs, one of which I attend regularly. Do you think these programs are less beneficial than they seem? Does it hinder my recovery to get into a mindset that I cannot recover without the program? Furthermore, why do you think that young people are using hard drugs, and drugs in general, in higher numbers than any other time in history? Is it because of the ease of access of substances, the coddling of my generation, or a combination of both?”
One of my best friends is a recovering heroin addict. You have no idea what it does to a person’s mind and soul (especially soul) …it hollows them out. The terrifying thing is if you’re “smart” about it, heroin doesn’t ever kill you.
You get to be a zombie for the next 50 years! Truly a hellish nightmare drug, one that’s ravaging giant parts of the US as we speak.
