ITV News published this video item, entitled “‘Sometimes I hope I don’t wake up’: The drug user who started heroin aged 11 in Scotland | ITV News” – below is their description.
Cheryl Riddick, 43, started taking drugs aged just 10. By 11, she was smoking heroin and age 12 she was injecting.
She has lost relatives and friends to drugs and when I ask how many, she says: “Too many to count.”
Scotland’s drug death numbers are up, once again. It has the worst record in Europe.
