Heroin Addiction is for most people a nightmare that you never wake from however it is possible to awaken from this nightmare and stop using heroin. I don't know that I became addicted to heroin the first time I tried it. I would have to say it was more of a progression. Matter of fact I don't think I liked it too well all I remember is really being sick and puking a lot. I started using heroin when I was around 16 and it took a whole lot of rehabs to get clean and get it right.
I have seen people overcome heroin addiction there first time around and they now have multiple years clean. I just was not one of them. I had to try to find the easier softer way by switching drugs and trying to just drinking alcohol. Believe me I have tried it all. It usually ended the same way either with me in jail or being dope sick.
I think anyone can get clean and stay clean on their first attempt if they take action to change their life. I believe it is necessary to have a plan for your recovery from heroin addiction. Make a list of the things you are will to do for your recovery and go over it with a sponsor. If you do not have a sponsor I would suggest that you get one. There are many available around the tables of NA and AA. It can also be found online at NA.org.
Once you have your life changing plan make a commitment with yourself and your sponsor to do everything on it and stick to it.
