Default What is the average life expectancy of a drug addict?

I am interested to know the average life expectancy of a drug addict because you never really hear of any old junkies around do you?

I know it depends on the drug the user takes, how he/she consumes it and the user but i was wondering if there was any research into this

if it involves meth, probably about 35-45. I've seen 29 year old tweakers who look like they're 45 or 50

I'd guess......longer than someone who isn't addicted. If you need to ask why you should google what a drug is.

Cool Re: What is the average life expectancy of a drug addict?

I know a guy in his 40s that has used heroin for 20 years. Been on methadone for 4.

He looks fucked up. I have seen 90 year olds that look younger and more lively.

I've seen a lot of old addicts...but i'm only talking about opiates......

usually they end up homeless for a while, and if they don't OD, they are likely to get shot or some bullshit because they owe ungodly amounts of money to sketchy ass people.

I mean shit. W/ding from dope is worse than dieing I would think.

at least when you die its over, when you are w/dings it lasts like a fucking million years and you are cold/hot and uncomfortable that entire time.

So for an opiate addict, if they don't; OD, get killed, kill themselves because of W/ds..i would say the life expectancy is quite long.

"waaah heroin w/ds waah i cant wait 4 days for it to go away"

there are other drugs that have withdrawls lasting months, you know. And the w/ds are worse.

And drugs do not affect life expectancy directly. Its the lifestyle choices addicts are often forced to make to keep getting high that hurts them.

Burroughs was a serious contender for "Histories Biggest Junky" and he lived till he was 83.

I think you can't generalize, seeing as 90% of the west probably has some form of drug addiction, even if it is just coffee every morning. Somebody drinking 3 or 4 cups of coffee every day may run health risks just as significant as a drug addict given time and peoples unique biological predispositions to dying in various ways.
