I am an overachiever, scholar, athlete, student council president, and drug addict. I never planned on becoming an opioid addict. It just snuck up on me. I got hurt playing basketball, tore my ACL and needed surgery. While I was recovering, my doctor gave me opioid painkillers and they were magic in a bottle. I loved them!
I got them from anyone that I could. Now they are almost gone and I don’t think I can get any more. One of my friends told me that Heroin is much easier to get, cheaper and makes you feel the same. How did I get here? I don’t want to be a junkie, but I think that is the only answer.
