Heroin is derived from morphine (an opioid), which comes from the opium poppy plant. Mexico, South America, and Asia are the most common places to find this plant. It’s extremely addicting, and it’s been prohibited in the US since 1924. It appears as a brown or white powder, as well as a sticky black “tar.” Horse, junk, smack, and brown sugar are some of the other names for it.
You experience a surge of nice feelings and euphoria after using heroin. Then it feels as though the world has calmed down for several hours. You may walk slowly as well as think slowly. You may feel as if you are in a dream, according to some users.
Heroin lowers your heart rate and respiration and prevents your body from receiving pain signals. Overdosing can cause you to stop breathing and die.
Nearly one in every four people who try heroin for the first time becomes hooked.
Heroin’s stimulation of these substances in the brain’s reward system is swiftly linked by the brain. The user eventually gets addicted to the substance and is unable to function without it. Furthermore, Heroin’s withdrawal symptoms make it difficult for addicts to quit on their own.
The following are some symptoms that an addiction has developed:
- Despite heroin-related problems, many continue to use it.
- Attempting and failing to stop or reduce the use
- Have round the clock cravings
- Developing a Heroin Tolerance
- Withdrawal symptoms or the sense of being “junk sick”
Needing frequent and higher doses of Heroin to get high or beginning to inject the substance are both signs of addiction. What may have looked like an inexpensive method to have fun before being addicted becomes a needed practice to function in day-to-day tasks.
