If you are believing that your dealer or any dealer cares about you and your welfare, sadly you are misinformed. In fact, former dealers of heroin have admitted that the users and those addicted to heroin were "pawns in their chess game." You are
nothing but dollar signs in their eyes. Still want to give heroin a try?
Although they can be arrested should you lose your life to an overdose, do they really care about any of that? Do they care about the family who is impacted by your drug use? Do you think they really care about the families forever impacted by death?
According to information out by drugfree.org teens were surveyed to find out why they started using drugs in the first place. Some of you may be surprised that 55% of those who participated in the survey said that it was due to pressure from their using friends to "just try it."
They did, wanting to be part of the cool crowd. Dealers know this. They approach with offers to "help you out with something to bring you up." They will tell you that heroin will make you "cool" or "help you fit in."
A dealer is likely to tell you that "heroin feels like a warm and fuzzy blanket." They will even play up the effects of a heroin high. They know you are just a vulnerable pawn.
A dealer is likely to tell you:
Drug dealers are motivated by profit and money only. If you think the dealer is your friend or for some special reason cares about you this will debunk those myths.
The dealer will tell you that heroin will be your best high ever. The first initial feeling after using is a "rush" or a feeling of euphoria. After that, the dealer becomes your hopeless dope friend. You will do anything to keep getting the drug even if it means dying.
To keep you coming back they often have to mimic heroin's first high. So they add things like fentanyl, carfentanyl and other deadly drugs. Not to mention what they cut it with. Heroin can be cut with so many things. Drain cleaner, baking soda, baby powder, anything in powder form. This is to under cut you the addict. Less drug for you means more money for them
Of course, a dealer will not tell you all the bad things because once you are hooked you are no more than dollar signs in his/her eyes.
What a dealer will not tell you:
|Don't let this be the last memory your loved ones have of you|
They won't tell you about the bad side effects of using, the nod and the euphoria are:
They will never tell you that if you make it out alive, you will forever be searching for your next fix.
They won't tell you that you will lie and steal to come back.
They won't tell you that the first euphoric feeling from heroin is the last time you will feel that high. You will forever be chasing the dragon.
A dealer won't tell you that you will forever be just a pawn in their game of chess.
After that, because you will never get that first high ever, they often add other substances to the heroin to give a bigger high. Often this is fentanyl added to heroin.
If you live the dealer won't tell you that you will lose everything including self-respect. You will steal from those who love you. You will likely do jail time for the crimes committed to feed your addiction.
They will never tell you that sometimes those who try it for the first time is their last time because a dealer won't tell you a side effect of using even just once is losing your life.
First-time users often vomit. Now, that must be a beautiful scene. Waking up from a nod off with vomit all over you.
A dealer won't tell you that within a few short hours of using you will experience sickness of withdrawal. These include:
Strong cravings for the drug
Body aches, cramps all over the body and Charlie horses once described to me by my son as the flu times ten thousand
Nausea and Vomiting
Body Chills and Goosebumps
And just in case you think you cannot die from detox and withdrawal, how many of you remember Tyler Tabor? A Reason why Criminalizing an Addict Has Never and Will Never Work
Long Term Affects of Using and Abusing Heroin:
Tuberculosis can result from the generally poor condition of the body.
Arthritis is another long-term result of heroin addiction.
So you see what the dealer won't tell you about heroin far outweighs what they will tell you. I wonder how many would have chosen heroin if they knew then what they know after one use. Tell me what you think. Leave a comment.
I hope you stop back tomorrow for my post, The Tangled Web of the Enabler
