Heroin has had a very big impact of my musical taste.
But yeah this girl I work with, her mum died of a heroin overdose. Worst still, was the mother was hooked on it for years, even through the pregnancy of a later daughter, and when she gave birth to that baby, the poor thing was hooked on it too. Had to be weened off with morphine. So the baby got taken away of course for her safety/welfare, and this girl I work with, Claire, has never met her sister and likely will never meet her. Its so tragic really.
Heroin is one of those drugs that doesn't just affect the person taking it. It affects everyone who loves that person too.
