Here is how you stop taking heroin. Suboxone. there.. problem solved.. you dont get high anymore but you also dont have an awesome chance of dying or getting aids. i think its a fair trade. and some say (your trading one addiction for another) not always and even if you DO id rather take 1-1/2 a suboxone a day then shooting up all my entire income into my arm.

OK, might as well correct myself- "While heroin withdrawal is seldom fatal, it can cause death if heavy users who are in poor health suddenly stop taking the drug."

"Heroin withdrawal can occasionally be fatal"

Only if the person kills themselves. It's alcohol withdrawal that can kill you- it can cause seizures, which can be fatal if they go untreated. I`ve seen both on the psychiatric ward at a VA hospital. With opioid addicts, the focus is on keeping them as comfortable as possible through the detox process, but opioids are not required to protect them from harmful withdrawal symptoms. On the other hand, patients detoxing from alcohol are monitored closely, and are given benzodiazepines if their withdrawal symptoms start to get out of control, since benzos act on the nervous system similarly to alcohol, and act as an anticonvulsant to prevent seizures.
