I've heard it's very hard to get an addiction, it can take up to a year to form one, is this true?
good question nick,and i one which deserves an answer for two (personal) reasons:
1-i make no bones about doing what i do or about slagging off smack (and i'm not a hyppocrite)
2-i would NEVER advise or encourage ANYONE to do ANYTHING just 'cause i do it.you're either gonna do drugs or you're not.
in which case the best i can do as a (ir)responsible adult is say this:
anything can turn you into a c**t if you let it take you over.
some are harder to spot than others.ultimately its down to you.
anything can be addictive,psychologically.all you need for a full-on addiction is to be unable to do without it.you can.but you might not think (or want to think)you can.
doing anything habitually is neither big nor clever.its your choice but dont think straight away that you've got the drop on any drug.believe me,just when you think you know it all...
smack is more dangerous than most because (amongst other things) it is PHYSICALLY addictive.makes people scream like a baby on withdrawal.(withdrawing from something is not the same as merely coming down off of it,however speed comedowns can be massively unpleasant)
mainlining (injecting intraveinously) anything is a cnuts game.full stop.watching somebody add to their misery by acquiring a needle addiction (whereby resorting to banging up water is by no means uncommon) is far from glamorous.
"pinning the tail onto the donkey" is not only an easy way to OD,it's also a relatively easy way to get abscesses,collapsed veins,air in your blood stream....the horror stories are endless.
