    It's impossible for a person who has not gone through it to really comprehend; the feeling of raw emptiness, the loneliness, coupled with utter meaninglessness of the world. Recovery is possible too; but only if we are willing to.

    Very nice post Robert. Addiction is a terrible disease and it is difficult to comprehend if it has not hit close to your home. I think it is very nice that you acknowledged that your post may have hurt feelings. You don't see that often.

    Addiction is almost equal to being in love. Except too late you discover too late that your liver isnot beautiful but rather a horrible succubus. She robs you of your very rssence all the while drawing you closer.

    George W. Bush. What a name you selected to hide behind. You are a true idiot. It appears that you are the one with the drug addiction. Sorry..I never return to stories after I post. No reason to. What you would say is meaningless. Talk to the air,.....Idiot...(:-)

    Hey Brooke Baldwin. Could you be any more aggressive, impatient, and unfeeling? Who taught you that being pushy and rude is the way to conduct an interview. Let the man speak. BTW, the interview said NOTHING about the "mechanics of heroin addiction" or "how addicts think." It was mostly about the dangerous additives in, and branding of, some heroin packets. I would love to hear about how addicts think. Hey CNN, let me know when you get around to this topic.

    Is there such a thing as a "good" batch of heroin? It's all bad...stay away from that crap. Unfortunately people who are addicts will now seek out this "ace of spades" and "ace of hearts" brands. SAD.

    There is something to said for old used to be drug users, if they lucky or blessed enough to still be alive they are a good source of information and they are usually adamantly against legalization, take Jerry Brown for instance.
