    You feel controlled by it? Do you think about it, dream about it, have problems with this temptation?

    Fwiw, heroin is not physically addictive when used once, there are no withdrawal symptoms. As far as "mental addiction," that depends totally on the person. It's hard to believe that trying it once would actually cause addiction, but many people would probably like it enough to use it again. I'm sure some wouldn't, tho.

    I have never injected H. I have used it orally, snorted, and smoked.



    Each time was just a chance encounter with the drug, I never went out to try to score it.



    I'll have to say that I enjoyed it each time, and that when I came down
    I kind of wished I had more, but that feeling passed in short order.



    It has now been years since I've had any of those chance encounters.



    I'd have to say, that the potential for it to be addictive is certainly
    there, as it is with all opiates. I think the key to using it and
    not getting addicted is to never, ever re-dose in the same day, or even
    the next day, or maybe not even within a week of the first dose.



    Occasional use seems harmless. But then again, I've never injected, so maybe that is a different story?

    I have used it once and the very next day I wanted it so bad, but the thought of it was scary to me so I haven't touch it since. That was about a 3yrs ago.


    BTW: It was the best high I have ever had, I especially liked it when I passed out for a bit, I had the most awsome dreams.

    FWIW, a dealer that I know was talking about H. Now this
    dealer is certainly addicted to meth and I know he likes to eat norcos
    and stuff, but he said he didn't really like H. I know he's tried
    it a few times and it wasn't the thing for him. I found that
    interested as I'd been lead to believe that EVERYONE likes H if they do
    it.



    Then again, I slammed C and didn't care much for that. Tho I'm sure I'll try it again to be sure.

    I have tried H maybe up to 10 times but didnt get addicted. It was not
    my drug of choice and I only took it because my bf offered me. I have
    never ever missed taking H. It was only a short period

    I see nobody got addicted.. hmm.. strange. So H is just demonized. But maybe therewere hundreds who read this threadbut didn't want to admit they were too weakto stop usingsmack. I think I will never know the real potential until I try.

    I think method of injestion influences the addiction potential to a
    decent extent. I've heard a lot of junkies say smoking/snorting/eating
    don't even hold a candle to injecting. Injecting it is suposed to be an
    incredible rush.

    maybe.. but my cousin snorted once. Told me ithad beenthe best feeling he'd ever had and he wouldn't forget it ever. Next day he bought more. He was running like mad from dealer to his house but fortunetly threw the shit into a pond in the garden and told himself no more.


    I think snorting is as strongfor first timer as injecting for a veteran. Everybody starts from snorting.

    My done it twice, smoked once and snorted once. Both times SWIM craved it intensely after the comedown. but SWIM lived in a place where it was pretty much non existent and very hard to find. I think that is the only reason he didn't get hooked. a good book to check out about heroin is JUNKY by william s. burroughs. it was written back in like the 50's. I found it extremely interesting.

    also smoking it is nothing like snorting, well snorting<smoking<injecting


    swim'll try anything now, he used to say he'd never try crack but he did, now he can enjoy that without being addicted


    allswims mates lost 9 years (roughly, well a few still on it)to heroin addiction though, (which does act as a detterent, but for how long?


    Smack really isn't for everyone but it seems even people without a addictive personality have trouble with it, if you're in with a group of people, it's too easy to become part of the scene.


    Also you have to travel a little while to get it here, as the only people who sell it for a while unhindered are obviously on the payrollEdited by: bonghed

    I've used it, I've enjoyed it each and every time. I've even had times
    where I used it and used it and used it. But, I can proudly say, I'm
    not an addict. I sometimes remember it like an old friend whom has been
    lost through years, an old, great, friend. I allow myself, and my
    girlfriend allows me, use of it once every 6 months. Snorting is my
    thing though, when I do use it, I send it up my nose. :)



    P.S. Christmas is the next time I can use it. I will be giving myself a nice opioid blanket for the holidays'. [​IMG]

    [​IMG]I was doing white heroin and dilaudad. she used to have to get up at five in the morning and do a shot so she could go back to sleep. she got hepititus and was too high to recognize death. In the womans owners manual it says that about a tenth of a gram of heroin everyday for about two weeks will definately produce a physical dependence . I was getting icky after a week. the first time she got high, the rest of the time she got well. jonsing is hard enough for the head , it's some serious hell when your body tells you ,you got to get it. takes the recreation right out of it! reck-creation is more like it aye.

    I am most definately addicted to it, but on the flip side I do not hate that as much as I probably should. I like to do it all the time and I do, I do not fore see me quiting anytime soon but when I do it will certainly suck a whole fucking lot. But for not it makes my life liveable and being alive and addicted is better than being dead and not.

    A word of advice, yes it is very addictive and very dangerous so be careful with opiates.

    love
    junkie

    Only aboput 20% of heroin users are addicts it is grossly blown out of proportions through the media and public stigmas
