I hope this is ok to share. Recently I've been trying to read everything I can about heroin addiction and came across an article by William Burroughs on his addiction, and heroin in general. Burroughs of course was an incredibly influential 20th century author. He struggled with heroin addiction for most of his life and wrote very candidly about the topic. "To say it country simple, most folks enjoy junk." I hesitate to say his story is an inspiring one, but when he writes about it he does not mince words, nor do I think he was dishonest with himself. As I struggle to help a family member with their addiction I found this article of his offered a perspective I hadn't really heard before.
