My brother and his wife got addict to heroin bad for 5 years, my brother stole my dead grandpa's wedding band and total a $6000 to feed his habit. He is clean now, but it took awhile to forgive him. My brothers wife almost died she was hospitalized with a blood infection for 3 month in the quarantine ward, they took her eye because of that infection she now has a glass eye. She has also been clean a year now.
My mother in law also is currently addicted to heroin and she abandon his youngest child which I am currently taking care of (with help of my girl). We are fighting for full custody, she is MIA no idea where she staying in the end police gonna have to arrest her to bring her to family court... or we gonna find her and serve her... so we've been searching... the kid is 14. Also my girl's father OD and died 3 years ago, so my girl and her brother losses a father and the mother is on the lamb doing god know what to get her fix. It's been rough
Lastly is my experience with drugs, Thank God i never got hook on anything, I have tried every drug in the book so i'm no saint, but my drug of chose was molly, acid, mushrooms, and cocaine... I was a hippie didn't like pill... I would use psychoactive 3 times in one weekend until I meet my girl, I settled down but I still used until my ex OD and died, followed by several other friends and acquaintances. Now I know everybody died using way more harmful drugs then I took but I guess I got survivors guilt cause I tell you man, it could have been me hook on H, So I don't do drugs anymore because I have witness the damage it has done my circle of friends and family. If you know anybody that's an addict keep in mind, It could have been me...
Currently I only drink once a week, with friends, and I always cheers to the dead
