— Trainspotting (1996)
I’d like to think I’m a fairly intelligent person. However, knowing that heroin is destroying any chances of me progressing in life, I continue to use. I’ve grown to dislike it, of course while simultaneously loving it. Every bit of it. My life relvoves around it. I get my paycheck every 2 weeks. By Monday, my entire check is gone and along with my veins. For another grueling week and a half I suffer to the most extreme.
But heroin makes losing everything worth it. It’s the devil in a syringe.
