If you take heroin you're a hopeless junkie, a thieving smackhead and a lost cause. Right?
Wrong. This book, the inside story of the people who take heroin, tells you how it really is. Author Tam Stewart was part of the heroin scene in Liverpool for years, and in 'The Heroin Users' she reveals with great insight and unprecedented honesty what kind of people really take heroin, why they do it, how it changes lives.
Heroin is portrayed as an evil and invincible force at large in our society – try it once and you are consigned to perdition. Tam Stewart moves beyond the tabloid screamers and TV shock-images, and in doing so provides informed and realistic hope, not just for addicts, but for all those around them.
