Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 3 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
You know when your a junkie when your alone in your empty flat after everything is sold and the gas got disconnected and the letters of repossession are coming in. But then after stealing something and scoring, 5 seconds after the IV injection it all feels fine.
Great funny responses,even though we all are laughing out our butts so to speak.(tongue in check).This is pre-exchange days.
When SwiY tosses your rigs out in the woods far away,drive home only to turn around a few hours later and go get them.UUGh.BTDT
You know you're a junkie when ... a friend tells you about an acquaintance who ODed, and your first thought is "I gotta get me some of that dope!"
Good one too. Recently Monkey heard of an OD and decided he must have that dope. Holy FIRE. one line in the McDonalds bathroom and he nodded into his uneaten burger. Now he's switched to IV drug use. God help us all.
You know your a junkie when you've managed to avoid the needle for 15 years and finally say fuck it.
Sparkles believes only a doctor with a special home office license can prescribe Diconal for pain relief, although she hasn't heard of anyone getting a script in recent years, and no GP will usually prescribe it just for addiction. She's checked her BNF and it does say it's still available in the UK. If you have to ask for it...you don't need it.
Yeah...it did produce an incredible rush, (as did Palfium) like no other Sparkles has experienced, but the "old days" of drug use weren't as glamorous as people believe. Access to pure, powerful drugs, like barbiturates, amphetamines and heroin were the cause of many junkies dying...too many.
That's why Sparkles worries about prescribing pure heroin to junkies today. Yeah...it does remove the harmful cutting agents that are in street heroin, but in an attempt to get an even greater buzz people will forget, like they did so many years ago, that more means a greater risk of OD.
Sparkles saw so many mates die during this time, it saddens her to imagine it happening to anyone else now. Addicts always push the boundaries, imagine just a little more will intensify the high, she knows this as she did it herself.
