As with all other addictive drugs, it is amazing to learn how effective heroin is at masking the real root problem in a person’s life. Heroin actually stimulates neurotransmitters in the brain that create a false sense of enjoyment. This sense of pleasure is, of course, only to temporal. As well, it is not reality. However, we have a very great Creator who made our body to secrete these neurotransmitters, and He has ways of doing so without the pain and misery of illegal and destructive habit-forming drugs.

The user of heroin will have a decreased mental function. In a sense, they will feel as if they are in a cloud. Their actions are often diminished. They’re breathing can slow down, and in fact, many even shut down causing respiratory arrest. Many heroin users complain of a dry mouth and a heavy feeling in all of her extremities coupled with occasional bouts of nausea, vomiting, and restlessness. Hunger and thirst are decreased, leading to dehydration and malnutrition. Along with the initial euphoria, there can also be significant mood swings, lethargy, and depression.

A huge problem with heroin is the aspect of tolerance. Tolerance refers to the user’s inability to achieve the desired high with the same dosage he or she started out with. Heroin users continually raise the doses of the heroin that they would take in order to feel like they did the first time they used it. However, they never achieve that first high. Tolerance is dangerous! The more heroin that is put into the body, the greater the chances are of unwanted side effects and consequences. Overdose can also occur. Overdose is the worst possible consequence of heroin use. It is also, however, the most common. While the symptoms of heroin withdrawal are more intense the first several days, they can’t last, in some degree, for several weeks. To say the least, withdrawal from heroin is severe!
