I was wondering if it is possible for someone who has been an IV drug user for years to go on & off heroin at will. My son's g.f. has told me in the past that she doesn't "need" heroin like my son does, but she's also told my daughter that she can't say no if it's laid right in front of her face. Since I've known her (close to 2 years), I've seen her go through phases where she was obviously been using daily, seen phases where she seemed to be using 3-5 days out of the week, and seen her when she doesn't seem to be using for 2 or 3 weeks at a time (maybe several months during her pregnancy). I can't figure it out. Is she just using enough to get her by & it's not enough for me to tell by looking at her, or is she actually able to just use several days here & then go a week there without it? Would someone wait and shoot before bedtime? It seems like if they get high in the evenings, they're up all night long running around the house, so I wouldn't think she was waiting & shooting after she goes downstairs for "bed" at night. My son has seemed "less high". I don't know if it's just them being low on money (neither has a job, so....) or if they're trying to cut down. I'd ask them, but they'll just lie anyway. Besides that, this just continually seems to go in cycles. It drives me NUTS.
