I stumbled across usenet/ADH (there were actually two discussion groups -- alt.drugs.hard and alt.drugs.heroin)  in the early days of the internet (back when you had to pay AOL by the hour or whatever to use it!)

It was pretty much the first gathering place online for junkies and I both learned a lot there and made several real-world friends.  It was a great place to
go for information for everything from how to cop to harm reduction to chemistry.  It even received occasional main-stream media attention a few times.

As the whole online world grew, I think the usenet format became cumbersome -- that, along with the lack of moderation combined with an
abundance of trolls pretty much spelled the end of ADH, probably about 7 or 8 years ago.

I know that its most recent incarnation was as part of "google groups" but I'm not sure that it exists any longer.    During the last 8 or 9 years of ADH
it was a mere shadow of its former self, unfortunately.

I'm not sure if there are many ADHers left.  I guess I'm an elder-generation junkie!
