Using heroin, according to drug counselors, is a very physical and emotional experience for the addict. The addict has to have a kit in order to shoot up. The kit would include something to use as a tourniquet, perhaps a belt, the IV needle, a source of flame, small metal container to heat heroin and of course the drug.
Heroin will either come in a small balloon or in a small envelope called a stamp. Manydealers will actually name their particular brand. For example that heroin that
Phillip Seymour Hoffman was using was labeled “Ace of Spades”.
