Hello there. I have read the "how to write a convincing addict" thread. This is a different question. I'm not having too much trouble making my character a convincing addict, but I am having touble portraying his addiction effectively, while also making him seem human. I know regardless of his addictions he's still human, but I don't want the reader to be distracted by his heroin addiction. Vincent is a poetic genius, and I'm quite stuck on protraying him as such, while at the same time protraying him as a drug addict. If anybody could offer any advice that would be great. Thank you!
