I lost my brother to heroin, such a shame he was so into his body and was into body building, then his "buddy" had him try it and he was hooked. At one time my brother was 230 of all muscle when he passed he was 135 skin and bones and skin all scabbed..he passed away in a car wreck he nodded out at wheel on Larkin and Black rd going 35mph he was 10 days in being 30 and i guess God saw him getting to tired. So now, I'm in school to become a substance abuse counselor, so i can hopefully help someone elses brother or sister.
