One of the most destructive and painful addictions that we have in the world is a heroin addiction.  The addicts and users can self-administer heroin by smoking, snorting or injecting it.  No matter what the method of their use is, heroin has a tremendous potential for addiction and abuse.  The user can be at risk for blood-related diseases including HIV and hepatitis.  Heroin addiction can lead to respiratory arrest, coma and even death. Heroin addicts feel unable to break out of the prison that has been caused by the drug abuse.

The Dangers of A Heroin Addiction

A Heroin AddictionHeroin can cause harm to the user especially when it is combined with alcohol, barbiturates, sedatives and other medications.  When heroin is first used it can be an attempt to self-medicate emotional pain or to stop heroin withdrawal pain.  When heroin use begins as a recreational use the individual doesn’t intend  to become addicted to heroin.  On the street, heroin has several different names such as dope, black tar, horse, skag, smack, brown sugar, and Big-H.

A heroin addiction has some short-term and long-term effects on the body such as warm flushing of the skin, dry mouth, slow and slurred speech, droopy eyes, impaired vision, vomiting, constipation and clouded mental functioning.  More serious long-term effects can be infection of the heart lining and valves, cellulitis, abscesses and liver disease.  There can be additives that do not dissolve and could result in clogging the blood vessels that lead to the kidneys, lungs, liver and brain.

Some heroin withdrawal symptoms can occur within 6 to 24 hours after the last use of heroin. Just to name a few are: hallucinations, headaches, mood swings, pain, nausea and vomiting, tremors and respiratory problems.
