I'm more than aware of the potential of heroin to ruin lives, and I understand why people are more passionate about discussing this when it has touched them personally. I haven't had family members who have been affected, but I have had a few acquaintances die or get sick through it and I've encountered every complication and death imaginable through work. In a similar way, I have watched many more people get sick and die through alcohol use. My own mother died a grotesque alcohol related death that I wouldn't wish on anyone, and in the years before she died alcohol made her behavior so foul that generations of people suffered, the ripples of which are still spreading. I have a relative in critical care at the moment with every organ so booze saturated that they can't have the surgery they badly need - that, and that fact that they are seizing through DTs. I fear the worst. All booze instigated.
Yet, nobody is pulling the sweet sherry from my hand and pouring my Sauvignon down the sink.
This isn't a thread about whether heroin has the potential to be addictive, and everyone has acknowledged that it does.
