Can you explain what harm reduction means and test shots? Not putting it down at all just curious. Like test shots I kind of get but harm reduction I am interested in learning about because I don't get what it means lol... This is also coming from a girl who has never tried heroin before tho so I only understand things from what I have seen.
Okay, so I’m assuming you already have a reasonable knowledge of test shots since you said pretty much that.
Harm reduction is basically any and all efforts to ensure that drug users (especially us opiate users) use as safely as possible. It’s basically the spread of information regarding safe injecting practices, test shots, recognizing and reversing opiate overdoses, helping opiate addicts stay sanitary and safe by any means possible. It’s acknowledging that addicts are going to use and therefore helping them use as safely as possible in the hopes that someday they will be able to get clean. The end goal is sobriety but if an addict dies during the course of their addiction then there’s no chance of them ever getting sober.
