I remember when I found out about my Dad’s heroin addiction so vividly. I must have been around 14 years old. I was waiting in the McDonalds drive-thru with my Mum. I don’t remember how we got on the topic of it, I just remember not being hungry afterwards.
My Dad has struggled with heroin addiction since he first tried it, back when he was 28 years old. I’ve never spoken about it with him until now.
