One of my favorite people in the blogosphere is Heroin Girl. When we first found each other’s blogs she was clean for the first time in several years and looking forward to putting together a new life and I was still the agency’s new girl.

It hasn’t gone smoothly for her; she has fought hepatitis that threatened to destroy her liver, while the treatment nearly destroyed her. And she has succumbed to the lure of the needle a couple of times, but turned away from that path and she continues to move forward. After a trip of a lifetime to Africa she is settling in London to start a new life.

One thing every whore knows is that quitting is harder than starting and that having sex for money is always an option. So when faced with trying to make ends meet in a low wage job she stared once again at the brothel door and walked across the threshold. We always have choices and HG could have made one that may have retuned her to the needle and waving at men in passing cars, but she didn’t.

Good luck HG. I’m betting you will make.
