I hate heroin. I hate what is does to innocent people. For a heroin addict everyday is the same. They get up and go find heroin. They wake up in the middle of the night thinking about it. They can't sleep. They worry. They walk around thinking about it. They think up ways to get it. They manipulate people to get it. They steal and lie to get it. Heroin addicts are like zombies. They only want one thing and that's heroin. They don't really care about anything else. It's a horrible existence. Sure, I know what some of you are thinking.."So, they did it knowing that they would become addicted to it"...Teenagers have a mindset, a "its not going to happen to me" attitude.
What can we do? How can we protect them from this devastating health epidemic? Education? They know about heroin...they know about the effects of heroin...All it takes is one kid to say "hey let's try it"...then before you know it...there's twenty kids doing it. Those twenty kids are selling it to hundreds more...It's just so hard to stop using it...it's difficult to know if they're using it...and even more difficult to find treatment solutions that treat the addiction as well as the addict. Any ideas out there? Any solutions?
