Dear Heroin: I Lost My 24 Year Old Nephew
I just lost my only nephew, aged 24, to alleged heroin overdose. I wish my friends never started using. It has torn me to shreds each and every day for the last 5 years. I wake up every day afraid to check my phone to see if they have overdosed or died. I get a sense of relief when I find out they have been arrested and are in jail. Somewhere warm, detoxing (not in the best way), and having a meal or two. Not out on the streets, running at your every call. F#ck you heroin. You have ruined countless lives. I watch drug documentaries in disgust at the dealers. They arent just dealers anymore they are murderers. This has been going on for 5 years, I'm only 20.
