"Bumping" this archived thread. It's a great read, proves a lot of points and this Dr Philip Crowley exists, he's a doctor. I've met him in person. You can find him on Twitter. He has a website (drphilipcrowley.com). I think this archived thread should be moved into the Harm Reduction forum (for example) because it needs to be seen, for so many reasons.
My intentions as a member of BL have changed. Harm reduction, recovery and proper education are the contributions I will be posting.
I'll contribute something now since I'm posting. IV users will find a PDF file (web search) Getting Off Right a useful guide.
