Pregnant and using

How can you be so bloody selfish? Heroin? Good grief.
Jodi was absolutely correct, and I'm going to quote her. "How could you not have realised that you were doing damage to your baby? If you want to get clean, it is probably time to talk to a professional about how you can go about doing that without harming the baby, but you also need to recognise that the heroin is likely harming your baby anyway."
Since you are pregnant, and haven't made an attempt to quit using that oh so wonderful (BS) substance, your child will (hopefully) be removed from your care in order to treat it's withdrawal symptoms, and hopefully save its life.
My recommendation is that you see a drug counselor NOW. Admit that you've made the extremely poor choice to use and get pregnant at the same time, admit that you understand that you have most likely damaged the child you carry, and ask for help. Support can be found, but not if you continue to make these very stupid choices.
Harsh, yes, this is harsh. However, I'm married to a 30 year recovered meth addict. I KNOW what that shit can do to a person. Heroin is absolutely no better, and there's NO EXCUSE you can give that will make your use acceptable in any way, shape, or form.
