So I have been a heroin addict for years now. When I was first introduced to it, I was dating this guy who manipulated me into thinking what I was snorting was not heroin. It was, and from the first line it became my best friend. I smoked/snorted it everyday for about a month and when I pretty much stopped getting high from it I decided I wanted to try and shoot up. So when that day finally came I had gotten really drunk during the day and that gave me the courage to try and shoot that night. This guy I was kind of dating at the time did it for me and right after he pulled the needle out I immeditely fell on the ground and was unconscious for what he said was about 3-4 hours. I had overdosed, and he apparently was freaking out because I was turning blue and my breathing was extremely slow along with my heart beat. Still unresponsive, he then decided to shoot me up with ice(meth) to speed up my heartbeat. After that night, I still couldn't seem to part ways from heroin. My use got way worse after starting to shoot it. At my worst I was shooting a little under 2grams/day. From shooting up so much, my veins are pretty much all gone on my arms, hands, feet, legs, and my lower stomach. I have been to rehab five different times over the years of my use. I unfortunately, just got out of rehab again about a month ago and I have fallen back into my old ways, using and all. It really is the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with in my life.
