danny boy

saw trainspotting again the other night, for the umpteenth time, and can't help think, Danny Boyle has a lot to answer for. i have several close heroin addict friends, and the similarities are scary. i think Boyle over glamorised the drug, as have so many, golden brown springs to mind?

watching the film made me think of the friends i have lost to the drug, some are gone, but not forgotten, some remain. my guess is, its kept the heroin industry going for the last decade. i have witnessed the effects of the most powerful, and life dominating drug on the planet, and the people who's lives it controls. the doctors believe methadone to be their panacea, in reality its just like drinking a non alcoholic drink, when you are an alcoholic. this only pushes them back, and acts as a paroxysm. i have seen it, for most, once you join the club, you are a life member, how long that life is, depends on mental strenght

we all have a drug of choice, diazipan,marajana,paracetamol,poker?whats yours? they say don't knock it, until you have at least give it a go, but who are they?
