This section of the site contains stories about of lives of heroin users. Most of the stories of non-fiction, but some are not--they are labled.

Fiction

A Long Hard Day
Getting arrested is just part of another long, hard day for a junkie.
Another Shity Monday
A humorous story about the desperation a junkie feels when

Non-Fiction

San Francisco: Feb Something 1993
A "day in the life" story of a junkie suffering from cotton fever and whatnot. This is a very well written story that has a transcendent truth.
Attack in Portland
A couple of desperate junkies make a plan and execute it. This is a very sad and frightening story. You might not want to read it if you are highly empathic.
Philadelphia
Just like everywhere else, police enforcement of drug laws have only made things worse in Philadelphia.
Suicide
This is my own personal experience with a user who was intent on killing himself. You can't help everyone--even people who you love (and I didn't love this guy).
Not Black
Sometimes it can be hard not being black when you're a junkie.
Smack in the Middle of Israel
A young man leaves the United States to kick dope in Israel with its easy availability of high quality dope at low cost.
Portland Is Swimming in Dope
Portland is the number two heroin city in the United States, after New York. The writer shows a good example.
A Bad Time with Ibogaine
A woman finds that ibogaine is not all she had hoped in her quest for a clean life.
Slow Down
Some things in life should not be rushed--like a detox.
