Pain pills are not enough. Who are these people around me? What am I doing around them? How did I get here? I’m offered heroin. It’s cheaper and stronger. I’m still able to hold a job. Things start slipping away little by little. Addiction runs in the family. I look back on alcohol growing up. Dad and I start sharing drugs. I find fentanyl. “I got this stuff, it’s a lot stronger”, says my drug dealer.
