Doing Heroin is Forfeiting Your Life
If you get addicted to heroin, your life stops being your own. At that point it belongs to the drug. Everything you do then revolves around heroin. And heroin is a highly addictive drug. Sooner or later you’ll feel the costs of it.
One gram of heroin typically costs between $100 and $300. The price can go up by several hundreds for purer forms. Heroin addicts can spend their entire day scrounging up the money for their next hit. Everything else – your relationships, work – falls away. And how can you finance this addiction without work? Heroin addicts often resort to crime in the end. All that for a drug that can easily cost your life.
The drug usually comes as a powder ranging from white in its purest form to brown in its less pure forms. Most heroin gets diluted with sugar, cornstarch, acetaminophen, caffeine or other substances.
The fact that a heroin buyer rarely knows the purity of the drug makes it especially dangerous. Not knowing how much is required to achieve euphoria makes overdose more likely. For example, if you usually get bags of diluted heroin, you might take larger doses to get a buzz. If you then get a bag of almost pure heroin, you’ll probably still take your usual dose. And because the heroin would be much more potent, your usual large dose would probably be an overdose.
Addicts sometimes tell us that the higher the risk, the more desirable the heroin. The bags known to cause overdose are those with the most potent heroin. Users will deliberately place their lives in great danger for a rush.
Is one rush worth your life? Because that’s always what the next rush could cost you. Our Toronto drug rehab program will give you your life back.
Check your values. If you value your life, checking yourself into rehab is the better option.
If you value regaining the ability to feel pleasure without endangering your life, addiction treatment can help you.
Heroin Addiction Treatment Is Reclaiming Your Life
You don’t need to be a slave to heroin anymore. Emancipate yourself. Live free from the burden of addiction. Start doing normal things, like getting a job, learning to play an instrument, starting a healthy relationship, volunteering, or whatever else it is that you want to do but can’t because your entire time, mental energy and physical capacity is devoted to heroin.
It’s not easy to quit an addiction like heroin, but it’s absolutely, most definitely doable. But to succeed, you really need to have the right supports in place in your life. We can give those to you and help you get to a normal life again.
Why Go Through Rehab?
The withdrawal symptoms of heroin are difficult to endure without help. They include:
- Intense cravings;
- Teary eyes;
- Runny Nose;
- Excessive sweating.
While nothing on that list is fatal, listing off the different withdrawal symptoms can’t explain the harshness of heroin withdrawal. It can be incredibly painful, physically and psychologically. But it’s worth it. The few days of withdrawal are worth it for you to have a normal life again.
If you’re only in this hellish scenario anymore because you’re afraid of withdrawal, it’s all the more worth it to quit. Live your life without fear. Actually live your life.
