    Did you ever have that moment, where you wanted to check it out, just to see what it felt like? Personally, it scares me too much, let alone it is illegal to think about experimenting with heroin. But, I wonder, if anyone got to that point where they "almost" tried it and then came to their senses at the last moment. I think, it is one of those life changing moments. If you had tried it and liked it, what if you were never able to stop? What a mess your life would be right now!

    No, never. Don't get me wrong, I've tried virtually everything else, but I always drew the line at heroin, despite it being offered to me on several occasions.

    I was always scared of it. I'd seem several friends go downhill fast on the stuff and two have even died from an overdose. Seeing other people's experiences first hand really deterred me from ever trying it.

    I am well aware of the existence of heroin. My dad's a retired policeman. When he actively served the republic, it was normal for me to see packets of heroin and weed in our house. Never once was I tempted to try sniffing those substances. My head was focused on something else. In a way, I'm thankful for having a set of clear dreams, a resilient self and a strong support system. These have helped me stay away from heroin and substance addiction in general.

    No, never been interested in trying heroin. Of course, I am curious about what it would really feel like to be high using it, why everyone is so addicted to this substance, but no, I don't think I'll ever be tempted to try it. I know it will not do any good to me, so what's the point?

    No, but I got to the point of "almost trying" LSD. To be honest, I find pretty fascinating what it can do to the human brain. But then I got back to my senses and realized it would be a huge mistake.

    Yes. My friends used to do heroin a lot but I couldn't bring myself to try it, even though I always wondered what it feels like and why everyone does it.
    It's good though, one less addiction to worry about.

    Yeah, I hear you! One of my dear friends son went downhill fast! I lost touch with them, when they moved out of state. I often think about them and wonder, if he made it! I pray, he did. He was a good kid and he had just become a father. The world was at his hands and he just could not step away from that partying crowd! You would of thought, he would of learned from his deceased father (whom my friend had divorced, due to his behavior while on heroin), to stay away from this drug! Sorry to hear about your friends!

    No, I have not tried it and will never tried it. I am just familiar with its name since we have discussions about drugs before and its bad effects but never seen one personally. Better to stay off from those drugs.

    I have thought about it. Luckily the part of me that is terrified of it always wins over the part of me which is desperately curious to experience it. But curiosity killed the cat, rather it didn't kill me.

    When I was younger I was exposed to heroin a lot, but it never crossed my mind to try it. I instinctively knew that if I ever tried it, I would get hooked on it. Not so much psychologically, but physically, as it would have probably numbed the chronic pain in my back and made me feel good for a while. I never touched the stuff because I saw several people I knew dying from overdoses. Also, I never liked the energy that heroin junkies emitted.

    Despite being around heroin a lot growing up, I was never really into it. It wasn't my "type" of high really. I saw what it did to the people around me, and I just made a choice not to go down that path. Instead, I went down other paths, with different experiences. I think most of us can relate to that in some kind of way.

    I've always been curious what it must feel like but I know my own boundaries and even though I trust myself and my character to be able to withstand many different experimentations I don't think I'd risk it with something this hardcore. I don't judge others who take it though especially ones who are still able to keep it together.

    I though about trying it many times, I was just lucky enough that none of my friends were into that stuff. I never met anyone who did heroin in my life. I was really curious because I was really into music those days and some of my heroes used them, one of them being Jimi Hendrix. I kinow he died from it, but that didn't stop me from wanting to try it. Lucky for me I'm scared of needles and I thought that shooting up was the only way to do it.

    No. Never heroin. Other drugs, I have came to a point of thinking, "Well, I'm curious, I could try it". Heroin was always the one thing I would never even consider. Too many negative examples, and not really any incentive to even consider it in a positive light, ever.

    Well, I really came close to trying it since some people said it gave them the best feeling in the world and nothing else gave them that kind of high ever but then I'm just afraid because I know someone who passed away after overdosing on it. It's not really worth it.

    I never decided to use the drug, as I had seen people around me be addicted and also they have lost a lot as they did not think about the consequences. I, reckon that people can lose themselves to this drug and also it is interesting to see how people can become addicts to this drug easily. I, also reckon it is a drug which can affect the mind and also it is something that changes people and for the better in most cases.

    Yes I have and yes, I did try it. I was already adamant with myself that I would never ever try it again and I haven't ever done so. It was well over ten years ago now that I tried it. However, I tried it by smoking it which is obviously very different to injecting it. I see no reason to inject Heroin if it's your first time ever trying it, that would just be ridiculous and pointless. I smoked it on foil (chasing the dragon) and I have to be honest, the feeling I got from it was horrible and was not pleasurable at all. It made feel dirty, tired, groggy and greasy and made me feel awful. It was such a horrible feeling that I don't ever want to feel like that again anyway.

    It's interesting to see where the line is for some people. Some of us can say that we drew a line when it comes to drugs like heroin and crack, but others clearly step over that line. What brought you to that point? What made you decided that it was worth trying? I'm curious what the others on this board think about how they decided what their line was, and how they decided to step over it for the first time.

    Exactly this. I saw what it did to people around me, and I wanted nothing to do with it. It wasn't really an issue of being scared of it because it was illegal, because at that time, I really wasn't too concerned about such things, sadly. Watching people I knew changed drastically by this poison, was enough to keep me from ever wanting to try it. Thank Heaven I still had some sense left at that time.

    Thank god I have never even felt the slightest urge to try it. I've tried tons of things, but heroin has never crossed my mind. I guess it seems to hard core to me. I used to like to experiment, but heroin and meth are in that 'too scary' category for me.
