Ask a Junky!

Over the past few months I’ve received quite a few emails from people, both junky and non-junky alike, asking a variety of questions about heroin and its use. Questions like:

“I just moved and don’t know where to any get heroin. Can you help me score?” (or more commonly, “Can you mail me some?” ::eye roll::)

“My friend is a heroin addict and I don’t know how to help them. Do heroin addicts ever “get better”? (my quotes, not theirs.)

“I’m a user too, but I’m not very good at cooking up. If I mail you some will you cook it up for me and send it back in the syringe?” (No, I’m not kidding, that was an actual question.)

“I’m new to {insert name of area here} and don’t have any friends. I met some people and they offered me heroin. I’ve been addicted to meth in the past, so I think I could handle it. Do you think I should do it?”

“Do you know where I can get any syringes? I don’t live near a needle exchange and my dealer charges too much for them.”

“I woke up and had this hole in my arm which is freaking me out. I have read some of your blogs and I think you’ re the only one who might know what to do without getting myself into trouble.” (he’s talking about an abscess)

“I quit heroin a few years ago, but I’ve recently started using on occasion again. Unfortunately, my veins don’t seem to have recovered. It’s almost impossible for me to find a vein. I heard IMing causes abscesses, but I know you’ve mentioned it before. Is it safe to IM black tar?”

Obviously I would never reveal the names of the people who contact me with personal questions. But I thought it would be a good idea to address these topics publicly so that those who have similar questions can benefit as well. If you have any questions regarding heroin, especially if you think others could benefit from it as well, send them to me privately and I’ll be happy to answer them – omitting your name of course. If you don’t want your question answered publicly, just let me know and be happy to keep your discretion.

I’ll be addressing each question individually and archiving them for easy access. So stay tuned! I’ll have the first one up in a short while. 🙂

  1. Thank you so much! I appreciate your feedback and your support so much. I had to edit the post slightly, sorry it wasn’t up earlier. Would you mind reposting this there and then deleting this one, or I can delete it. Thanks 🙂 sorry about that!


  2. I wanted to leave a comment on the latest addition of this section, “So Your Friends A Junky”, but my e-mail wouldn’t link to it. Anyway, I wanted to thank you for the article. Especially, what you said about methadone and suboxone users. As a methadone user, I face the new, separate stigma of this choice. It, however, is the best choice for me. I am two years clean this month. This is around when I relapsed before when I was cold turkey “sober”, so I went a different route this time. Suboxone didn’t work for me, as I find that suboxone works better for people with smaller habits.
    Also, I wanted to thank you for pointing out that trying to force an addict to quit almost never works. The addict has to want sobriety or it won’t last.
    Lastly, thank you for breaking down addiction stereotypes simply by being a smart, well spoken, clever, sarcastic addict. We are not stupid, despite how we are portrayed.
    Keep doing what you’re doing!
