People can become addicted to heroin after only one use, so it's too addictive to be legal. Also, heroin users usually turn to crime in order to get the money to keep using the drug, so it's bad for everybody around them.
Yes. Other than the usual problems related to low therapeutic index drugs, it can cause decreased kidney function, chronic constipation, poisoning from contaminants, confusion, nausea and vomiting; its use is also associated with a rise in AIDS cases (from unsterile needles). In addition, it is also highly addictive and this can lead to many problems when trying to quit.
I'm 20 and a recovering heroin addict. firstly its is true to a point that heroin is indeed not 'bad' for you as you say. Provided there is a good clean source and you take the correct dosage you will be fine. After all it is used in medicine everyday. DONT FOR ONE SECOND THINK I'M SAYING TAKE IT!!! its the bad things that dealers put in it that messes you up or overdosing. it is possible, and i used to know people that would only do it every once in a while and not become addicted. heroin is similar to tobacco.... It takes a while of doing it regularly to become dependant. It certainly isn't 'good' for you, you don't get any health benefits at all.
Well u stick a needle in your vain and herion is for people with no life
While heroin is certainly dangerous in it's own right, much of this sunstance's risks arise from impurities, the way it's used, and the lifestyle of those addicted to it. Pure medicinal heroin would actually be about as dangerous as opioid painkillers such as oxycodone. The main risks with heroin and other painkillers is overdose and addiction. Long term, the substance is not especially harmful to the body (less so than alcohol, in fact). However, the aforementioned behavior leads to additional risks which greatly increase the danger associated with heroin.
Hey Guys ... :) I have no idea how to answer this question for you but i need it so can you answer it if you no it. :) Thanks :D
Obviously it is bad for you. Some think you cant die the first time you do it or you cant die from sniffing it, but both those are wrong...you can die from your first time, so dont even pick it up. you can die from sniffing it, just as you can die from shooting it up. being a heroin addict, now 2 weeks clean, i remmeber when getting high on heroin was just fun. after awhile it become an every day hastle and you love it too much to stop. you would do anything, even hurting the ones you love, just to get a quick high. so to answer this question, heroin IS the devil, it took my soul, and after only like 3 years of using that shit...i know i am definitaly not the same person i used to be...and i dont know if my soul will ever come back even if i am clean for some time...
Well i figured this question was blatantly obvious but if you really need to know why NOT to do heroin...here are some facts from Wikipedia.
Frequent use quickly leads to tolerance and dependence and has a very high potential for addiction. If sustained use of heroin for as little as three days is stopped abruptly, withdrawal symptoms can appear.
It is illegal to manufacture, possess, or sell heroin
the risk of contracting blood-borne pathogens such as HIV and hepatitis
the risk of contracting bacterial or fungal endocarditis and possibly venous sclerosis
Poisoning from contaminants added to "cut" or dilute heroin
Decreased kidney function
Not wanting to be a loser and an idiot
Not wanting to be a loser and an idiot is an opinion, not all heroin users are losers and idiots. ______________________________ WOWW i cant believe that this wasn't listed in the original answer: RISK OF OVERDOSE, AND DEATH. Heroin's purity is extremely hard to judge, and therefore is VERY easy to overdose. It does not take much t overdose on this drug, and when that happens, you'll die. Plain and simple. STAY AWAY from heroin.
Heroin is not a person, so moral terms such as good or bad are absurd when used to describe it. people who use heroin are either good or bad, although it is debatable whether heroin makes them one way or the other.
Because it will take everything from you, I mean everything, you'll go broke, start steeling, loose your friends and famialy and eventually loose your life or end up in prison there is no way around it thats the sad truth for all junkies.
Heroin is illegal because it is very bad for your health. It is very addictive and contributes to crime in the world.
marijuana is just as dangerous as normal cigarettes, while Heroin is alot more dangerous and addictive
heroin trail are dangerous. they are drugs, heroin trail causes diseases & and they are really bad for your health
Ecstasy and heroin are both very dangerous and addictive drugs. Do not use them.
Because you can get addicted to it quickly
Heroin is a tremendously dangerous drug; those who become addicted to it will wind up sacrificing everything else for the drug. There is no creature on Earth more pathetic than a heroin addict.
Yes, even a small dose will block the high you normally get from heroin. Adding heroin to Suboxone can have a dangerous additive effect. Many people have died from trying to get high while on a replacement drug.
They can be. They are under the influence of a strong narcotic. People react differently to these.
Yes. Several stores (including Sears and Roebuck) and catalogues sold heroin as a cough suppressant and alternative to morphine, though heroin is actually more dangerous. They sold a heroin syringe, two needles, and a carrying case for $1.50.
Only when you over dose. It's even healthy just taking normal amounts
