Hit Memory

Knew somebody who used to use heroin a fair bit. Don’t know if regular enough to be considered an addict. Stopped using it after he nearly died from an overdose.

Years later, said to me recently, “If the doctors told me that I had only a couple of months left to live, the first thing I would do is go out and buy heroin.”

What was it like?

Can’t describe it.

Thinking about Philip Seymour Hoffman. Represented as clean for some twenty years, and then going back. Can’t forget the feeling.

So much waste, through past becoming present.

Can’t describe it.
