Tag Archives: Heroin Addiction
I ran into Ali today. His abscesses have gotten worse since the last time I saw him. Many addicts put off medical treatment because they are afraid of getting dope sick while in the hospital. From what I’ve been told, not all hospitals give addicts medication to help with their withdrawal symptoms.
How do we know that heroin addiction is a psychological issue rather than a criminal issue? Because anyone in their right mind would never do this to themselves:
The reason Ali’s leg is so swollen, is because it’s filled with puss and nasty infection. It smells like death when the puss flows out of an abscess. I’ve had that death-smell stick in my nose for several days.
This abscess is about two inches deep. Ali will lose his leg if he doesn’t take care of this.

“I’ve experienced a lot of hurt, a lot of pain, a lot of people have ripped me off. I’ve seen a lot of things in this drug life, things most people never see – the whole underside of the World. It makes me question the whole thing about God, about dyin’ and walkin’ golden streets. If they’re walkin’ golden streets, then they’re already puttin’ a price on heaven.” – John Lee, Heroin Addict
