How much does this limit us as human beings? If I were a heavy heroin user for several years, and hadn't used in 18 hours, might it be
for me to resist a readily available supply in certain circumstances?"
It wouldn't be physically impossible, but if you did resist it you would die because you would have a chemical dependance on it and your parasympathetic nervous system would just shut your body down completely.
