Escaping heroin, the one way ticket.

by christian
(usa, arizona)


Heroin is evil plain and simple. My name is Christian and at the age of 18, I became a daily user of heroin. Prescription drugs started the hole I dug of addiction.

It was such a seductive drug and in no time was in control of me, my money, and my life. I was so deep in this hole of addiction, one day as I was smoking heroin, and stopped and said to myself:

"the only way out of this addiction is death".

At that moment I lost all hope of escaping the hole I've dug so deep from heroin. I was so scared to be sick, and had no vision of seeing myself clean.

I was a user for numbing the pain of the grief I was currently going through, after my father died, that I witnessed him being killed on death-row, and when I didn't need anymore numbing it was to late because once u start, there's no going back:

"almost like the red and blue pill from the matrix ".

But there is! I am now 1 year clean and never have been so happy and so free. I went through hell and back to detox. And I strongly agree the only way to get clean is the same way I did...Cold turkey!

I think back to those horrible nights of cold sweats and withdrawals, and realized 2 - 4 weeks of hell, beats the crap out of being a slave to something so evil, nasty, seductive and addictive for a lifetime.

So for all u users out there, it is possible and it is hard but only u can make the choice, and I promise u, if u can quit heroin, nothing in this world can stop you, and u by far are stronger than many.

Don't give up, and don't surrender, and be one of the resilient people out there like me, that have done what most user think that is impossible. Get clean. Your family will notice, your friends will notice, and most importantly u will, and u won't regret it.

No one can make the decision but you, to quit. U dug the hole and only you can climb out of it. And when u do, that first breathe of fresh air u take, will make u feel more free and alive then u have ever before. Addiction free is the way to be!
