Heroin: “I’ll Just Try it Once”

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

I know some friends that have said to me, I’ll just try it once or twice, I can always stop.”  But when they start down that road it is nearly impossible to turn back.

Sam a user said:

“When you first shoot up, you will most likely puke and feel repelled, but soon you will try it again.  It will cling to you like an obsessed lover.  The rush of the hit and the way you’ll want more, as if you were being deprived of air—that’s how it will trap you.”

You use it once then not only do you get the threat of addiction but the worse consequence of experimenting with heroin.  You may use it long term and get bad teeth, inflammation of the gums, constipation, cold sweats, itching, weakening of the immune system.  That just names a few, so I ask you does that sound like fun.  So just trying it once can get you into a lot of trouble.  You can become addicted and then nothing else matters to you.  You will get the money anywhere you can.  You will spend your whole day finding or taking the drug.

Heroin: Its Destructive Effects

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

Some of us or some of our family and friends use heroin and we may ask ourselves.  What does it do you?  The initial effects of heroin include a surge of sensation it is called a “rush”.  Now a person will get a warm feeling of the skin and a dry mouth.  Sometimes they will get severe itching or vomiting.  I don’t see any fun yet, do you?

After these beginning effects fade, the user becomes drowsy for several hours.  Then all of the body slows down, like the heart beat and the breathing.  Then it is only hours after the drug effects decrease the body begins to crave more.  You know if he doesn’t get a fix he will begin to experience withdrawals.  These withdrawals include extreme physical and mental symptoms which the user will have if their body is not supplied again with the next dose.  They start to feel restlessness, aches and pains in the bones, diarrhea, vomiting and severe discomfort.

Then the cycle really begins.  The intense high they get lasts only a few minutes, so they use more; then he needs increasing amounts of the drug just to feel “normal”.  This is not a way to live.  It interrupts your work life your family life and all things around you.  You become obsessed with “where will I get my next fix.”

Heroin: What is it?

Sunday, September 4th, 2011

We hear about heroin all the time on the news, but do we really know what it is?

It is a highly addictive illegal drug.  Millions of addicts use it each day all around the world.  They are actually unable to overcome the urge to continue taking this drug every day of their lives.  If they stop they will face the agonies of withdrawals.  They are not bad people they just don’t want to feel the pain that goes with withdrawals and no one has been able to help them so far.  There is an answer now – Narconon Riverbend.  Where they help you through the withdrawal stage and get you through the detox stage and then they give you life skills to help with the problems you had when you started to take the drug.

Heroin is made from the resin of poppy plants.  Milky sap-like opium is first removed from the pod of the poppy flower.  This opium is refined to make morphine, and then further refined into different forms of heroin.  Most heroin is injected, and that creates additional risks for the user.  These users on a daily basis face the danger of AIDS or other infection on the top of the pain of addiction.

So that is what heroin is.  Scientifically it comes from a plant.  Practically it should not be used because it creates addiction.

Heroin is one of the most difficult drugs to quit.  If you need help quitting heroin call us now at 1-877-340-3602.  We can connect you with a heroin drug rehab program that’s has proven it’s successful.
