The Drug Experience: Heroin (Part 3)

During this Background Briefing we continue to describe the experiences of heroin users who have their lives seriously affected by their drug use, focusing on heroin withdrawal.

“There’s no sign that says, ‘you’re now entering addiction’, there’s no big sign that says, ‘you’ll need to stop now, if you go once more that’s you’. You just cross that line and you don’t realise you’ve crossed it until you try to stop. I didn’t think about withdrawal symptoms or anything like that ‘cos I always had access to money.”
