What Is the Appeal of HEROIN?

Question by F: What is the appeal of HEROIN?
I was wondering why Anna Nicole Smith (and so many other people!) became addicted to it. What does it feel like to be high on heroin?? (I would never do it, by the way; I am just wondering!!) Does anyone have any facts about heroin, what does it feel like, and are other celebs addicted to it too?
Matthew G: What in the F*CK are you talking about?!? I think you might be high on heroin right now.

Heroin was first synthesized in Germany, 1898, by the Bayer Company, and is the most prevalent of the semisynthetic opiates. Most commonly in a powder form, the more prevalent form of administering is by mainlining (intravenously), skin-popping (subcutaneously), or intramuscularly. With the purer forms becoming more available, snorting or smoking the powder has also become common. Heroin also goes by the names Big H, Smack, Dope, Mojo, Brown (due to the crude processing methods), Mexican Brown, and Mud.

Oxycodone is similar to codeine as an analgesic, but proves to be more addictive. Percodan, Percoset, and Tylox are trade names, not unlike Demerol.

According to a recent study, there are approximately 1.9 million habitual users of analgesics. In the same study, about 2.5 million Americans have used Heroin at some point.

As a direct result of the respiration being repressed, an overdose is an extreme yet common effect of the abuse of opiates. Malnutrition, Gastrointestinal problems, and severe infection (resulting from injecting, as with heroin). In addition to these side effects, the withdrawal symptoms are equally severe. From watery eyes, muscle spasms, and flu like symptoms to mental cravings and severe depression, the rehabilitation process is even more taxing on the individual.

I think most women would like to be a heroin for one reason or another. There is usually a high associated with any heroic act, either because she knows she is contributing to a better society around her, or because of the love and praise that is ravished on her.
In any event there should be more heroin in this world, simply because it makes the world a better one to live in.
