She looks like a really cool interesting person. I wish heroine were legal and regulated, so people wouldn’t OD so easily. I lost my friend Kristofer that way too. He was rad.

How do people travel with this addiction? I assume it would be hard being sick all the time. Sorry for your loss. I also just lost my best friend of 20+ years 2 weeks ago. Heroin is a killer.

For real, man. The whole "War on Drugs" only made the problem worse. Shame to see another casualty of a war that should never have been fought. :(

Shit man. Sorry for your loss. I bet she was such a chill person. I’m glad you are continuing on in her memory. Having a shot for Rosa. Heroin is a killer man, lost too many good people to it.

It especially sucks because it is possible to be a heroin user and still live a long life, if the dosage is correct. But it’s illegal, so people never know how strong the stuff is.. one day they get some that’s stronger than what they’re used to and that’s it.

It’s a painless way to go, but it’s so unnecessary for us to lose our friends that way.

I’m going to Portugal next month. They have decriminalized all drugs there, and guess what? It’s had incredibly positive effects. Drastic decrease in HIV and overdoses.. and probably a drastically more mentally and physically healthy population. Way to go Portugal!

Whose coming with me? Haha (remember that scene in half baked?) Who’s coming WITH me, man?..

Cute!
I feel like the best thing we can do is remember how awesome our loved ones were, and incorporate that awesomeness into our lives. I used to feel sorry for my friend who overdosed, but if you think about it, that doesn’t make sense. I saw a movie called ‘Children who Chase Lost Voices’, and in it someone said something like “don’t pity the dead. It is healthy to mourn our loved ones, but save your pity for the living. The dead do not suffer.” That idea really helped me. Once I moved past my own fear of death, I was able to remember how wonderful my loved ones were, instead of just being sad they were dead. They were wonderful people! And death happens to the best of us. (Smiles with tears in eyes)

Damnit. Always sad to hear another loss due to the chokehold of addiction.

I'm sorry for everyone's loss related to this persons essence upon their lives.

Much love, and safe travels to everyone out there.

The War on... Is a sham. Just legalize everything, cut the middle man out, regulate it + offer safe injection sites, propagate harm reduction, tax lightly + we're gold.

IM just throwing it out there, ive never known one person to live a long healthy life on heroin. Ive also seen someone OD right in front of me and it def wasn't painless. They were convulsing and puking and trying to scream for help, it was horrifying.

I was under the impression that living a long life was possible, maybe not a healthy one, but I could be entirely wrong. And maybe the effects of addiction are too ravaging, and maybe the drug itself is more damaging than I realized.

I’m so sorry to hear about that horrifying experience. I was not around when my friend overdosed. I know that heroin/ opiates can be powerful painkillers, so I was under the impression it was painless. I read someone’s first hand experience of overdosing (then later being revived) and they said that the OD itself was just like “oh shit, maybe I took too much”, euphoria, then passing out. They said it was the “being brought back” that was painful. But apparently that’s not how it happens for everyone.

It sucks and is horrible and my heart goes out to anyone who has had to struggle with it or known anyone who has.

It may or not be a painless death for the person who unfortunately overdoses, but it is most definitely painful for those who knew and loved the person.

I saw a documentary on TV about heroin once. It said that dealers will spike some of their offerings with fatal doses of Fentanyl because it apparently sends a message to other users their stuff is strong shit. I guess heroin decks are branded with logos or something? I don't know if that is true or not, but I'm not into the heroin game. Sad regardless.

Sorry for your loss. She used to post on tumblr as filthy-and-free, and one of our ex-members used to correspond with her. We share space with a needle exchange, and hopefully injection sites will become legal in California and another state or two soon. Until then, everyone should know the laws and how to use NARCAN.
