Drugs .. :(

Posted by Jodiebob on 27 July 2016.

Hello all, I'm not entirely sure why I'm writing this ... But it just seems that speaking about it to people who really feel the pain of having a loved one (s) with drug abuse will understand why I'm writing this ?! If you know what I mean :(
I'm 40 I am the baby off my siblings I have had horrible heroin in my life for 28 years now .... I hate it ... It took my best friend and brother when he was 12 years old .... He fought battled this horrible demon on and off for years until it appeared to win the battle when he passed away less than 12 months ago .. I most of the time feel like he won the battle as the horrible heroin and all the pain and hurt has finally gone away and he can rest in peace X however .... I haven't mentioned my eldest brother .:. The good looking guy .... Army guy ..... Fantastic joiner ... Fantastic at everything ... Fell on the drug track 15 years after James .... He was never really gripped and often moved away and could stare in the face of this awful demon heroin..
However ... James has passed and at peace it seems that heroin has seemed to find its winning appearance and taken ed too ,..., my heart hurts and I don't want to turn my back .... But I literally have been and done this for 1/4 of my life ........ Please heroin go away ....
