Your sweaty hands are shaking. Your eyes dash about in desperate search of your bulging veins. You take a deep breath and prepare for impact. The thought of addiction forces you to exhale.

Leaning your head against the wall, you cry, defeated. You know if you take the plunge with this syringe you'll be hooked for the rest of your life.

But what do you have to lose?

You're startled as the door opens. She runs toward you. "What are you doing?" she says. "Please, don't give up on me!"

"Is this love I'm feeling?" you say. "I think I'm hooked."
