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.


  1. My grandfather said “Honesty is the only gift we can hold onto into the next life, not money nor possessions will ever fill the holes in your heart; but the honesty of others and yourself will warm your soul and make it less heavy to carry when your journey through the spirit world begins.”
