    Really Screwed Up Today

    0
     I've had a ton of shit going on, no excuse, I know. So to "feel better" and be able to "deal", I used. Last 6 months (whenever I had used) I stuck with snorting it. Well, today I made the stupid decision to return to the needle. My tolerance is shit cuz I was getting a handle (so I thought) on using. Ended up ODing. For real this time. I stopped breathing and all that. Luckily I wasn't alone,...

    Rough Day

     Have a lot going on today and I really don't want to be alone. No choice in the matter tho, I'm alone, all day. What I do want to do is use again today. I'm not sick or anything. I just want that false sense of "everything is good and I'm content exactly where I am". I just want to feel OK.

    I will do this. I may be in the wrong group, coming off of 5 straight years of suboxone (treatment). Just to be completely clear Do Not go cold turkey with that high of a dosage. I'm stupid for doing it this way. I'm not whining just throughly impressed with the symptoms.

Then I'm stuck in a rut feeling pathetic. Hating myself more and...

    I Have A Question

    5
    I have never used herion and ave no intenion of doing so, so my question is why you took that first shot when you were not addicted?  I know that everyone knows that heroin is incredibly addictive and dangerous so why start down road?

    Heymy boyfriend is currently in jail because of heroin. It has destroyed his life. He wants to be clean but I know that it's easier said then done. He needs help and by the sounds of it he's getting the help he needs in jail however jail is way different then being out in the real world with temptation and stressers.Once my boyfriend is released what should he do? How can I help him stay clean?...

    Herion

    I know this isn't an easy question to answer but I'm wondering how much herion is too much for a person who just started doing it? And how much is in a $10 bag (east coast) And what happens when it's taken with benzos?
