New Here

So I just joined this community, however have been clean from the needle for over a year, because the way shit was going for me. I believe it Heroin was available in a controlled setting like it is in Europe, United States wouldn't have the homeless, criminal junkies, Studies have shown that long term opiate users, who have the opportunity to attend a Heroin Maintence Program, or recieve a script, (As in parts of Europe it's allowed) Users actually are successful in life. They are normal average day to day people. They just need heroin to keep them normal. It's like a MMT clinic but better, as lots of Addcts fail on that as well. Luckily for me I am on Methadone, and it's saved my life. Granted there are times when I sure the hell do miss that needle piercing my skin, but I have been the most stable I've been in my life and the most content. I'm really for all harm reduction Methods. As the "War on Drugs" here in America is so unsuccessful. Most long term opiate addicts will never be able to quit as permenant brain Chemistry Changes have resulted from their Use. I'm happy to be a part of this group even if I'm clean from Needles right now. i can still relate. I also am not sure if any one here else is on Methadone and I'm certaintly not trying to steal people away from this group, but I have an MMT support group if anyone is interested about going on Methadone, or is on Methadone. Those who are on other harm reduction treatment are welcome too. Suboxone, Heroin, Methadone LAAM etc.....The name of the group is MMTPretty, you can find it by searching Methadone in the search results. Anyways, I hope everyone has a fucking fantastic day!

I haven't done heroin in years, from my own holding off, and I was really only doing it for a year and a half. I was surrounded by people that THRIVED on it, and I just realized that it wasn't the greatest thing in life [obivously]

But the people who did thrive on it finally turned their lives around, and did use Methadone. Sooo many people say "its just as bad, if not worse - blablabla" But these people SWEAR by it, and also believe that it saved their lives... I approve enough to just be happy that they are still alive.
i would like that heroin users´life in europe would be as happy as american people believe. it isn´t. addiction is shit everywhere!
I understand that addiction is everywhere, no doubt, my point I was making is that there are steps being taken in other countries that a proving positive outcomes no matter how small, it's still positive. So Yes, addiction is everywhere, I never claimed every addict in Europe was all cupcakes and rainbows happy. I just said that we need to follow suit. This had nothing to do with Europe not having bad addicts of course they do, but they have a better look on Opiate Maintenance, they approve drug replacement methods that show successful results as I have thoroughly researched. America will never approve those types of Opiate Maintenance, it's a shame. Our War on Drugs Mentality, is failing addicts everywhere.
you show like a so pretty girl that i supposed you to be a social worker, not an old user, and you reminded me my late girlfriend of ten years ago, when the two of us believed in the perfect drug therapy. But you are an success of your own, proud mother of a lovely kid (i´ve seen the pics on your board). try harder, and good luck. I´ve always thought that to be 100% clean is possible...only that there are too many ways, all difficult to find. to have something to care about it is the main thing, IMHO. LOL.
