Simon was my brother. We grew up with our grandparents and our father. Our mother used heroin so you would think it would put us off. Istarted using heroin first. WhenI found out my brother was using as well,I was shocked. He hated me using drugs. He died on his 28th birthday, in a hostelby himselfin Edinburgh.
I haven't used heroin in a long time,I've been on a methadone for over 10 years though. I miss my brother everyday. We weren't close while growing up but 6 months before whe died he hugged meand told me he loved me... the first time he's ever said that.
