Hey everyone, dont know if this is the correct forum for this thread, but since IV is afairlypopular method for opies I thought about putting it here. Do u mainline? Are u a 'Junkie'? Now swim IV's and he keeps it quiet. Naturally he doesnt want others to know about his dirty habit. He isnt into heroin just pills, tho he would probably do H if he could find it. Swim only has 2 other people he spikes with recreationally and they jokingly call each other junkies, but these "junkies" have families, jobs, etc, and resonably contribute to society blah blah. The main reason I am writing this is that his wife knows his prefered method of ingestion and, although she puts up with it, thinks its gross and calls him a junkie lol. Swim just tells her hes a "recreational intravienous drug user" lol i luv that handle. Anyway, most anti-needle folks out there probably have this same view. Personally I think, and this is what he tells his wife, that a "junkie" is someone with an uncontrollable addiction, probably has no job, either steals or prostitutes to support the habit, and probably smells lol. Seriously im just throwing this out for discussion. I realize that iv ing is the most dangerous method of drug use and can lead to addiction faster than most other methods, and i dont mind hiding the fact that i do it or the occational arguement with the wife. I was just wondering what other peoples opinions are on this matter. THe stigma attached to the needle is a big one, one that i dont think will ever go away. I will probably hide it forever, eccept on this forum of course. So what do you all think? Does the needle automaticallly make one a Junkie or just a Recreational mainliner?
