Extract from 'That's Not Me', a drama in which a young couple, Kevin and Julie, become addicted to heroin. Here Kevin and his girlfriend describe how heroin came between them. She describes how his drug use made her feel left out, and how this in turn led to her trying heroin.
Warning: This clip contains scenes of drug use.
Students could use this clip to discuss how to protect yourself if people you know are taking drugs, or how to say no when drugs are available. The 'interview' sections show the woman with bruises on her arms in a squalid flat; pupils could try to imagine how she came to be in that situation and whether or not it had anything to do with drugs. This is the third of six clips from the series 'That's Not Me'.
