In heroin’s clutches

Chet Baker

Chet Baker

Dalrymple dislikes the implication that

in the relationship between a person and heroin, heroin is the active participant. It is the person who grips the heroin, not the other way round.

The status of heroin addict

is one that is sought after. Once achieved, it is not slavery or enchainment, it is a lack of anything considered important enough to give up for.

Heroin addiction

is another of the myriad ways of fulfilling the human urge to self-destruction.
