What is the new heroin problem really about? Is it largely a question of evil gangsters plotting the downfall of the younger generation? Or is it a problem that has been encouraged by the self-indulgence of wealthy pop stars? Does it afflict people from all walks of life, or is it a problem confined to certain sections of the population such as the young unemployed? Why do people get involved with heroin in the first place, when its notoriety is so well known and publicized? Is heroin a drug habit that is impossible to relinquish? This book attempts to allow heroin users to speak for themselves, about how they first encountered heroin, what they think about its effects on their lives and then how they have tried with different measures of success to "come off" and "stay off". By this means it offers a graphic picture of the personal consequences caused by one of the most threatening social issues.
