I know not everyone watches documentary's, but I personally love them. I love documentary's about drugs, don't ask me why but they fascinate me to no end. The most recent documentary I've watched was called "Ben: Diary Of A Heroin Addict". It's about a guy named Ben who records his life as a heroin addict. He carry's around a camera with him and shoots up every day.
It's pretty amazing how people let themselves get completely dependent on a substance like that. I understand how it can be hard to quit because of the cravings once you're addicted but to get addicted to me seems like a foolish and totally avoidable thing. I don't really believe in that whole "once and you're hooked" line. I've had my curiosity about drugs and have done many at least one time including heroin purely for experimentation and understanding of the drug and while they were very enjoyable, I still could not see myself waking up every day and literally needing it, why would anyone want to live like this?
I know it may seem foolish of me to experiment with drugs, but hey I was curious and I would be wondering for the rest of my life if I hadn't tried it. I am not in any way saying you should go out and try drugs, but if you are as curious as me, watch the documentary's first and do your research on the drug. Before I try anything I do hours of research on it and determine weather it's safe for me to do or not. Erowid is a great website for useful information on drugs if you're interested in reading more.
