I'm making this post to gather a collective opinion. I intend to continue using opiates (Heroin and Morphine) as I have, in morderation and with temperance. That is, to never experience addiction. Opiates and addiction do not necessarily go hand in hand anymore than casual drinking and alcoholism do, or speeding and injurious car crashes. Personally, in my recent experiences, I have found that the day after using is the time where I am most driven to use again, yet find it relatively easy to curb any desire and by the day after, find desire to use negligable. So, the question, how many people believe it is plausible to use casually and with temperance, never facing addiction (as most people who drink would not have to face alcoholism)? To give a better perspective, I just read Saying Yes in defense of drug use and its chapter on opiates (specifically heroin and morphine) supports the view that they can be used by healthy, functioning people (BTW, I highly suggest the book).
