Eight Questions about Heroin and the Death of P.S.H.

Eight questions about heroin and the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman – The Washington Post.

The article above cites the following as what happens when one takes heroin….it sounds like something better than sex…But, of course these feelings fade with the addiction and then, maybe, you’ll die.

A short but powerful “rush” and then a high that lasts four to five hours. It is described as a warm, drowsy, cozy state. People report a profound sense of satisfaction, as though all needs were fulfilled. There is also a pleasant state of mild dizziness that is not as impairing as alcohol’s effects, and a sense of ‘distancing’ or apathy toward whatever is going on in the environment.

Jodie Foster’s Message to Her Mother (Golden Globes)

….”This brings me to my greatest influence in my life, my amazing mother Evelyn. Mom, I know you’re inside those blue eyes somewhere and that there are so many things that you won’t understand tonight, but this is the only important one to take in: I love you, I love you, I love you. And I hope that if I say this three times, it will magically and perfectly enter into your soul, fill you with grace and the joy of knowing that you did good in this life. You’re a great mom. Please take that with you when you’re finally okay to go. You see, Charlie and Kit? Sometimes your mom loses it too.”
