Surviving

Locked Up

Date:        10 Jun 2006

My 28 year old daughter is incarcerated on a serious charge. She had a large amount on her when she was arrested.  She has a 3 year old daughter which I now have care of now.  She was fortunate that her daughter did not ingest any of the drug.  This has taken it's toll on all of us as we never expected her to succomb to this drug.

I lost my friend billy to a heroin overdose. he was with his "friends" when he began to overdose and they left him on the floor of his bathroom to die.  His father had to find his dead son the next morning.  Billy was a good person, he had a warm heart and smile. he left many people who loved him behind. I wish people could see the damage that it does to everyone involved in the situation and think before shooting that needle

We all lost her, she had potential and now that dream is lost. To all that new her well she will always still be there, watching from the sky with the rest that never made it. I dont no who knew she was on it but i wish they made her stop. At times like these it make you think why they do it for the thirll and the buzz how long do they last. Did she stop and think the pain that it would corse. Rest in piece THA GOOD DIE YOUNG X

I lost my soul mate to Heroin. I had not gone back to his country to see him for the past couple of years. On January 2, 2005. I woke up by his mother's phone call at 6.00AM. They found him in their bathroom. I have note dated any one and have to passion for life any longer. I had traveled searching for him, for many years. We were very much in love. I moved to three different countries, to try and save him. Now I ask GOD every day
"why me?" I cry alot and I feel very lonely without him on earth.
I know he was my soul mate, I hope I will see him some day in heaven.
All I was able to do in ten years of our relationship, was to introduce Christ to him.
I hope this can help some one. I dought it. This addiction is really devils work on earth. Like a vacum it sucks you in.

I've been clean 4 months now, it never gets easier; you always will have urges. Once a heroin addict, always a heroin addict. Anyways, it terrifies me to hear stories about people who have been clean for 6 months, 1 year [or even longer] and ultimately end up loosing the war. All I can think about is myself when I hear that. I'm 22 years old and the way I was going I'm lucky to still be here [or at least to still have a roof over my head]. I know people in prison and people who are dead because of heroin. Getting off this stuff was by far the hardest thing i've ever had to do and i'll go out on a limb and say it's the hardest thing i'll ever do in my entire life. Remembering the agony I went through, yet knowing the rush and euphoria from heroin and knowing that it only takes one time to suck you back in scares the **** out of me. I've never been a religious person but I sure found something during those first few weeks coming off that stuff and whatever it was I found I need to do my best to stay with it.. because I refuse to ever go back to heroin, at least not without a fight.

8 Years off heroin, and it gets easier! There is still a weak moment here and there where I could fall back into it... but I dont. The temptation never goes away you just develop more reasons why not to go back to it. You start enjoying other things in LIFE. That split second of doubt or guilt, turns into 30 sec, then an hour, then eight years. I cut all ties with everyone I used with for 2 years, and moved away and when I went back I looked at them differantly. Be strong and you can deffinatly get through this. The best resource is yourself and your family

i just turned 20 of this month, i gotta say getting off and staying off is very incredibly hard.  id have to say this is the most pain ive ever felt as a human being as i am withdrawin from opiates.  my friends were using, i remember i said i would never use.  u have to pick your friends wisely, its true what parents say.  i just wish i learned earlier.  so its been officially the 2nd day off.  i cant have trouble getting comfortable every second, its almost like tortute. for anyone that would read this, do not ever use heroin. no one should ever go through it.

one day at a time.

I have been on Heroin from the age of 17 I am now 23 and have been clean now for just other three weeks. Every day is a struggle trying to rebuild my body and soul. I pray to God almighty that he gives me the strength to continue on in my struggle against this evil. I pray for all those in my shoes and to all those still stuggling with the habbit. I pray for those who have died at the hands of Heroin.

Heroin addiction can happen to the best of us, and more often than not it does... stay strong guys!

My best friend is addicted to heroin. Every day I watch her slowly get worse and worse. I am scared to death she is going to OD and die. I dont know how to help her stop.
I hope I dont have to click 'death' next time.
