Sparkles believes only a doctor with a special home office license can prescribe Diconal for pain relief, although she hasn't heard of anyone getting a script in recent years, and no GP will usually prescribe it just for addiction
. She's checked her BNF and it does say it's still available in the UK. If you have to ask for it...you don't need it.
Yeah...it did produce an incredible
rush, (as did Palfium) like no other Sparkles has experienced, but the "old days" of drug
use weren't as glamorous as people believe. Access to pure, powerful drugs
, like barbiturates, amphetamines and heroin
were the cause of many
junkies dying...too many
That's why Sparkles worries about prescribing pure heroin to junkies today. Yeah...it does remove the harmful cutting agents that are in street heroin, but in an attempt to get an even greater buzz people will forget, like they did so
many years ago, that more means a greater risk of OD.
Sparkles saw so
many mates die during this time, it saddens her to imagine it happening to anyone else now. Addicts always push the boundaries, imagine just a little more will intensify the high, she knows this as she did it herself.
