What, 13 posts in and no mention of DL favorite Faye Dunaway?
I thought William S. Burroughs was addicted to morphine rather than heroin. But as heroin is a morphine derivative we can create an alcove for the morphine addicts
Eugene O'Neill's mother
Is Lou Reed actually addicted to heroin? I thought he was a speed freak.

Yep, Emmylou. She's clean now, but she was an addict for quite a few years.

I can never quite believe that Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz are heroin addicts. I often wonder if Angelina Jolie is in recovery or not?

Bob Dylan r6? Know about pot and other drugs popular during the 60's, but didn't know about him being a heroin addict.

R23, Julia Roberts started using heroin when she was with Keifer Sutherland. That's why she got the hell away from him before it killed her.
I don't know the identity of Cameron Diaz' heroin mentor, but you can probably figure it out from looking at her past relationships.

Bob Dylan was strung out for a loooong time through the late 70s and 80s.
Nico - who even got her own teenaged son hooked on the shit.

Many people, and probably many more, are turning to heroin after OxyContin was reformulated. Being unable to abuse it with the new additives, addicts have turned to heroin. Add in the fact that it's cheaper to buy a bag of heroin vs one Oxy pill, former Oxy users easily switch their drug of choice to heroin.
I think we're going to see a huge surge in heroin related deaths, as well as people seeking rehab.
(This is all easily verified with an Internet search, by the way.)

A lot of the people mentioned here were druggies who used heroin (maybe) but were not heroin addicts. Here are some who were:
Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen
Ricky Lee Jones
John Lennon and Yoko Ono

Since we control most of the poppy fields in Afghanistan, hell yeah heroin use will go up.

[quote]Judy Garland at the end of her life
I seriously doubt this. Her own speed/downers habit just did her in. "Incautious overdose" was her cause of death. It was the same shit she'd been taking for years. Her frail appearance at the end wasn't uncommon for speed users, and those who were just wearing out their bodies.

Himmmmmm wrote somewhere (I have read those posts on so many sites now I can't remember where I saw what) that Angelina isn't hooked on herion or oxy, but on fentanyl.

re 33, driving a Checker in 80, picked up Mike Bloomfield outside Lone Star. Wanted to go to Eldridge St. I said, I will only drop you at the Delancey end. Different LES then, kidz.
Next day, POST screams Mike Bloomfield OD's.

Is Damon Albarn still using? I saw him perform at the David Letterman show less than two years ago and he looked healthy.
|by Anonymous||reply 49||03/20/2012|
Damon Albarn looks like shit in the "after" photo because it was taken 20 years from the "before" photo. He was a junkie for awhile but there's not much documented evidence of heroin wasting.

There's some evidence that herion does not age a person but that the lifestyle of many addicts does rapidly. Which is why Julia Roberts or Angelina Jolie look great and still use.
In fact, some say that herion preserves looks. But that's another thread isn' it.

R54, Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction claims that heroin has absolutely kept him looking well preserved. He says what ages heroin users is the junkie lifestyle - not eating, sleeping, doing whatever to score. But if you're rich and aware of what you doing (like not using too much dope, just enough for your fix) it acts like formaldehyde.

Jolie used to snort it recreationally for a short while in the mid 90s like a number of people I knew but I would never put her in an addict category. Do you people know what a real addict is? I don't really know much about Roberts.
I've known a number of people who played with it back in the day but I personally would never risk anything stronger than pot or hash. LOL!
No it does not preserve you or help you look great. That's ridiculous. Very bad for the skin.

I can't comment on heroin, but coke keeps me young! I still look like a young, fresh teenager!

Jim Morrison wasn't a heroin addict. He was a drunkie, not a junkie. Not that it makes much difference in the end.

Bowie was never a heroin addict. His drug was cocaine. He once said that he hated drugs that sedate, like heroin, alcohol, tranquilizers, etc.
Where do some idiots get their info? On a hunch?
