So "casualcollapse" is not just a witty name?

oh I thought 'Miss Henson's 6th grade class' was actually hive mind :(
@Gmork - pfft, as if.
I have one brother that almost died from heroin, and I'd like to see him live to old age.
I have another brother who never met a drug he didn't like, including heroin. Drugs to him are like radiation is to cockroaches, which is to say the effects just seem to bounce right off. I don't know how he's still alive. Somehow being hooked on meth cured his alcoholism, strange as that is, and he was a horrible drunk for years but he became a raving lunatic on meth. He's lied for money, stolen from family, (and had weird justifications for things, like "I didn't STEAL it, I PAWNED it") prostituted himself, gone berserk at times and made strange threats, was a felon with a gun, got probation for violating probation that he got after he violated another probation for, get this --violating a previous probation. Original charges were driving without a license and distribution.
Then he fled he state.
Florida truly has the dumbest criminal justice system.
He ate a drug dealer's live frog for 5 dollars once. Someone he used to call his friend, was just making him do gross things for cheap entertainment, like a really low budget Fear Factor.
I have often wished the killing curse was real.
I mean I could go on. He blacked and beat up his girlfriend. He never apologized for it. They were together for 4 years. He insisted it he never did it, despite all the witnesses. He also beat up a sister and stole her money. I mean, just, I could write a book.
@kingofnothing.. one of my younger brothers got really addicted to heroin.. I never got addicted I just OD'd a couple times because my tolerance was still low all that time. I was a good chipper, there has to be a genetic plus the way our parents raised us heavy Factor leading to addiction.. my Mom beating both of us didnt help very much..

I've been addicted to nicotene, and at one point I used a lot of meth, although I don't think I was really addicted. (I used it as a tool to get through university while holding down a full time job.)
Having said all that, although I can't speak to heroin, I do have experience with Percocet, which I used under medical supervision. Holy shit, that stuff can get its hooks into you like nothing else. It's not even that *good*, but when my prescription ran out I found myself balefully looking at the bottom of my empty pill bottle wishing there was just one more down there.
Fortunately, the pain I was managing was truly temporary, (I was recovering from surgery) and I stuck to doctor's orders & didn't get well & truly addicted. But man... I do *not* envy heroin addicts the fight they have ahead of them to get clean.
