I am deeply sorry that a family has to mourn over the loss of their loved one. The victim is to blame here. The way I look at this whole drug issue is its the bad killing the innocent but sometimes the bad. You make a decision when you stick a needle in your arm, even more so with todays tainted heroin. The decision is like playing russian roulette with 6 rounds in a 7 cylinder Smith & Wesson. The odds are against you that your life will expire. No matter what examples are made of drug abusers, the drug problems continue to rise. As messed up as it is to say, let them kill each other off.

Obviously we don't know them, who would want to know a heroin addict? No one, other than other addicts. If you do drugs you should be able to deal with the consequences of them.

Not to worry. These people must have been sheltered and brain washed by mommy and daddy growing up. They still haven over come the syndrome. Thats always the response from this kind of people to anything they dont understand. "KILL THEM ALL" is the most popular thing they say. If they only knew how others felt about them...

I don't think they meant "Kill Them All" I think they meant that people are responsible for their own actions and the drug addict is responsible for their actions that hurt other people. With all the available treatment and information to help addicted people around the addict is just not being responsible and therefore will not be mourned except by their own family and friend. Certainly they won't be morned by their fellow addicts except the dealers who have lost a client. Don't believe this go to a crack house and tell every one there a 5 year old died yesterday of a drug overdose and see what kind of a reaction you get.

I tend to disagree. I beleive that everyone is responsible for their own actions. However, no one is responsible for the disease of addiction. That would be like saying my grandmother is responsible for her cancer. Drugs are a power greater than you. I have a lot of expercience in helping addicts get sober, including a family member, and I realize that no one wants to do it and it is not as simple as saying "no more." It is too powerful and most people can't do it on their own with out a "higher power."
By the way, that "poison herion" going around killing people is just fetynal, which is 100 times the potency of heroin.

Sadly the most ironic element of this phenomena is how the addicts simply don't care and in fact search out this high octane smack all with the mentality that "It won't happen to me" or "I can handle it" or " This will be a great buzz!"

Being an addict does not make you any less of a human being. The idea throwing in the towel, or as some would like to put it "let them kill each other off", on our fellow human beings is a disgrace.
Most of these negative statements... "who would want to know an addict", etc. are based in fear.

You OBVIOUSLY have no idea what you are talking about. I feel sorry for you that you are so close-minded and have no compassion. I also feel sorry for you because you need to put others down in order to make yourself feel normal.

Heroin addicts are weak people. Drug addicts are weak people. Pieces of shit is more like it. Those of you who continue to sympathize for these people need to be real with yourselves. Our world would be better off without them. I have two family members who are drug addicts. I try to help them time and time again, calling rehab centers, drug programs, law enforcement, ect. They dont want help. I give up.

Anyone who kicks a habit and goes through a real reality check does deserve credit. Those who remain addicts, and keep relapsing time and time again are worthless, weak individuals. Good for you kicking the habit. My last post wasnt aimed at people like yourself. Being able to kick the habit completely shows some serious mental strength.

Sorry to sound so heartless but cry me a river! Weak people become Heroin addicts; stong people kick the habit. You knew what that shit does to you before you started shooting up. I have a family member who is seriously hooked on drugs; we've tried to help him several times (more than 10). He doesnt want help and he is tearing my family apart. He chooses the drug over his family and life. He's a piece of shit in my book. I dont even consider him family anymore. As ruthless as that is, fuck it. Life is too short to waste it away trying to help a person who doesnt give a shit.

I hate to say it, but I am a heroin addict. I've been addicted to opiates for 4 years now and I'm only 20. You're right when you say that we are weak because the ones that can't stop are. It is something that a non drug addict can never understand. Once you know that feeling you will never ever forget it. I went to rehab and I relapsed in rehab. I went home and used some more. But the pleasure isn't worth all of the pain. Destroying the people who care and love you so much just for some feeling. So I decided I knew I couldn't do it alone so now I'm on suboxone and it really helps. But heroin addiction is a disease. It's something that takes over your body and tries to kill you. I don't think people that aren't heroin addicts should judge us because they don't know how it feels. I used to think heroin addicts were so disgusting and gross and I became one. I don't think I'm disgusting and gross I just know I have a problem that could kill me at any second. I'm just one of the lucky ones who stopped before I could have died. Now I'm continuing my college education at Harvard Univ. and I am so much more happier with life being clean. Just please don't judge drug addicts, they are people with feelings just like you, they just need your help. But you can't force anyone to stop, they need to be ready to stop.

Have you every seen a junkie after you hit them with Narcan? They get pissed at you for ruining their high. Every person makes their own choices. If they choose to take the road of addiction, then let them be. I think the only time we need to step in is when their action directly affects us, such as they steal from us to support their habit, then take them out permanently. They are not happy with their life and seek something in the high.

Heartless, yes I am.
