    I used to work part time in at a methedone clinic when I went to school. Its pretty pitiful, but they still are humans...its like a sickness. I think some people are more predisposed than others but it takes all types (rich/middleclass/poor). Just happy that I always had a fear of needles.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    dude, you always have a choice. You can always quit when you have the determination. what if he chop off his own hands, do you think he would still be able to inject himself?



    It is a conscious choice. No one is controlling your hands but yourself.

    You can actually die from heroin withdrawals. Once you are addicted to it, your body physically needs it or you can die. This is why people "taper" off with methodone.

    (I would rather die, though)

    So is the drug so powerful that you lose all freewill to resist it?
    And does the craving land addiction lasts for the rest of your life?

    Yes and yes.

    Some quotes:

    "Regardless of how it's administered, effects of heroin are almost immediate and last from 3-4 hours."

    "And when they're hooked, many can't tell you whether they keep shooting to feel the pleasure or to avoid the pain that comes with not getting a fix every few hours, or if somehow, the distinction between the two has gotten so blurred that they can't tell any more where one begins and the other ends."

    "And while addiction to heroin is physiological -- involving the central nervous system and other body systems affected by the drug -- it also involves a strong psychological component, which can continue to make life difficult for an ex-user months or years after the physical craving for the drug has gone.

    In short, the reason that heroin works in the body is because it so closely resembles bits of protein in the brain and central nervous system that plug into internal receptors, the biochemical triggers that help regulate pain, pleasure, and emotion, and which otherwise produce effects identical to narcotics.
    At this cellular level, opiate-drug molecules are like perfectly shaped "keys" to a system of internal "locks" that activate the endorphin system. And with endorphins, when the key fits, the body turns itself on."


    "As we mentioned earlier, physical symptoms begin to abate following the second or third day of withdrawal, but the psychological symptoms and the huge empty feeling in the gut that a junk habit leaves can last for years."

    It is very important that while in Suboxone treatment you refrain from abusing your medication. The meaning of “abusing your medication” should be self-explanatory; however, there are even some small examples of abuse that are often overlooked. Obviously, you should not take an abnormally large dose to feel a euphoric effect. If you are taking Suboxone .
