You should've told how you did that...oh well, you're a knight.

The comedown effects of it is extreme and it an addiction you have to keep taking more or the withdrawal effects can actually kill you.


Nailed it right on the head there, this serves as a lesson for all of those thinking in consuming heroin.

i would like to disturb the thought/view that is currently here about that Philip Hoffman has been using this drug for few year already or that he had never stopped using it.
cause he has been clean for 23 year befor he started using it again last year. (1 of many sources)


The comedown effects of it is extreme and it an addiction you have to keep taking more or the withdrawal effects can actually kill you.

yes they are but they are not that extreme anymore after 1 year then they are after 2 months not using it. leave alone 23 year.. he had long passed that period of withdrawal.. however, the effects of the drug on the body is that extreme that the feeling of needing it can return at any moment. (but doesn't have to)

[OT] Just posting a link, it should turn out a working hyperlink; there are no codes needed.

It may sometimes happen the (forum software) code misfires, and the link turns out unclickable. Oh well. Ain't no biggie, and people can just copy-paste it or so

Re: heroin, what never fails to shock me is the realization how someone in that position, too, may fall for it, and just as easily. (And then heroin, it's hardly a popular or perceivedly "cool" drug anymore, or at least and certainly not where I live.) And apparently pursue a successful career.

Then again it's said that if you can afford it, it is actually easy to keep up a pretty functional life on it. It's where most people can't that problems usually arise.

Anyhows, may he rest in peace, again. Overdose is not uncommon in the field no (and like PartyDevil said, certainly after a break. Or say if one were to suddenly acquire a batch of a quality one isn't used to), and failing other indications I see no reason to speculate on the matter.

That notion of heroin withdrawal being potentially fatal I'm not so sure about (it certainly is with e.g. full-blown alcoholism!), but either way, it well may be, and I'd by no means want to advocate the stuff. All those stories about it being well-nigh instantaneously addictive and immediately leading to tolerance (needing ever more to experience the same effect) I can attest to. (No, I swiftly dropped it again, thanks, mostly for that reason. Way back when.) And as the story goes, real users scarcely experience the high anymore if at all, anyhows, it's mostly the cold turkey (withdrawal) they're busy warding off forever.

As for the question why? Because it really is dang good, that's why. But, as I hope to have made clear: Do not even go there, indeed. Already my second time it wasn't quite as good, and I did need more of it. And "just dropping" it after even a short while may not at all go so easy on some, as it did to me; I've used and dropped a lot of things and am not a fool if I may say so myself, so maybe that helped me.

I'd like to add that I never have much sympathy for victims of drug OD's, but I've never been in the place to experience it. At this point I suppose it's sad that (yet another) person has succumb to drugs, but this type of thing happens a lot. Maybe I'm desensitized to it; I'm not sure. It does, however, anger me that celebrities receive special treatment for, you know, everything.
