Never in my many many years of getting high did I ever encounter an opportunity to try heroin. I believe that is proof positive of the existence of guardian angels. The few friends who did get a chance to try it did not survive the experience.
Must be a *hell* of a buzz.

jwm: Take it from a fool who knows, it is the worst drug I ever came across. It sneaks up on you, "first one's free" they used to say and one fine morning, hooked. No, I take that back. Tobacco and coffee are the hardest drugs for me to put down. Twenty-seven years away from all the crap a person can eat, smoke, shoot, snort, drink, whatever gets it inside ya and coffee and ciggies hold me, I got a monkey on my back like King Kong for the espressos and Amsterdam Shag.

I made it through complete kidney failure a few months back; now I am off the dialysis, yay. I take the chemo for Multiple Myeloma, and I am right with my God. I just can't put down the coffee and smokes, shrug. Go figger.
