Its too easy to to overdose on heroin today.
If you or someone close to you are addicted to Heroin you have plenty of worries. The Heroin thats on the street today is mostly a dangerous drug called fetanyl but small amounts can kill you. A lot of this cheap drug comes from China and gets here from the Mexican border. These dealers dont mix their drugs good and its causing many overdoses. I just lost a long time friend this month. He didnt expect to die but heres what he did. He smoked three dime bags of crack with a girlfriend and then they shared $100 of Heroin. They did the Heroin all at once. his girlfriend told me they always did that amount before. But, my friend who overdosed was 90 days sober from his last time using Heroin. After they did the Heroin they both passed out for about 3 hours. But right before my friend who died passed out he had put on his coat and called the dealer back and he told him he wanted to get more Heroin. As my friend was walking to the door he slumped over and fell on the rug and he never woke up again. His girlfriend grabbed the garbage bag and was going to throw out the trash when she passed out at the bottom of their inside hallway. She woke up to find her boyfriend upstairs dead. He turned blue. She called the paramedics but it was too late. My friend would have never expected to die from an amount of Heroin he was always doing in the past with no problems. If you are addicted to Heroin and if you stop for a few weeks then you need to know that your body will not handle the same amounts you were used to doing. Heroin is deadly. My friend who overdosed had went to drug counseling several months before his death and he was aware that when he had a blood test they told him he had fetanyl and morphine in his blood but there was no Heroin. So all the Heroin he was buying wasnt Heroin at all. Thats why being a Heroin addict in these times is extremely dangerous. Whats the moral of what Im trying to tell you here? Quit Heroin. Start somking pot heavily. I really dont have a good answer for you. I understand how hard it will be for a Heroin addict to quit but quitting must be the only option. Get help please because too many people are dying from these dangerous street drugs that they are mixing with and largely substituting for Heroin. This is a major crisis our country is going thru.
