The Dirty H.

I have always wanted to have a public blog about my struggle with drug addiction but never had the courage to do it. I felt an overwhelming amount of shame and fear, because there is a stigma that surrounds addiction, especially to heroin, and so I kept this dark part of me hidden for almost a decade. Through this experience, though, I have come to realize that there is freedom in honesty and I no longer have to hide who I am. I became a junkie the day I used the needle, but I was an addict long before then.
