Great insight into the life of hardcore heroin addicts
26 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I found the link for this doc on a fellow users blog. It broke my heart, I have been using heroin daily for almost 20 years, I have only 1 usable vein in my neck, I have had DVT in both legs and have lived a truly hectic life as a result of my addiction. That said, my life seems a picnic compared to these poor lost souls. This film really tugged at my heartstrings. These poor kids are living a life of self destruction in the extreme.( And you can bet your last dollar there is an awful underlying reason for it (like a 5 year old girl being raped by her own grandfather). Living in the UK I don't have to worry too much about aids and I think we get better quality heroin here.(The black tar verity has a high acetic acid content which can burn out the vein in double time). It really is an insight into the problems of addiction young people are facing in modern times. I would recommend watching it but be warned, if you have friends or loved ones with a heroin problem, it may open your eyes but will almost certainly break your heart, unless of course your heartless, or have a small minded hatred of addicts. 10/10.
