Heroin is the most addictive dangerous illegal drug on the streets. It affects the hygiene and personal appearance of the user a great deal, because nothing is as important to the user anymore as where that next hit will come from. It causes great euphoria, but also nausea and vomiting.
Like any street drug, its user does not know what potency he is getting from batch to batch.
Therefore, there is always the risk that he will overdose and die.
Withdrawal from heroin can cause severe illness and death. Drug addicts need money to support their habits, and all users, addicts or casual users, are careless and reckless when under the influence.
