James Diaz of Anti Heroin Chic is allow us to share content from his site.
His site has articles, music, poetry, etc.
Here is an excerpt from his home page:
Anti-Heroin Chic is a collective journal of poetry, photography, art work, stories, essays, interviews and more. We currently publish on a somewhat rolling basis, featuring anywhere between a dozen to twenty new writers, photographers & artists every month, whose work can be found on our contributor blog page.
‘Anti-Heroin Chic’ meaning that what is beautiful is what is broken, that our imperfections, our exiles, our exclusions, are what define our humanity most, not the polished surface or the Instagram culture which encourages us to dissociate from who and how we truly are. There is a seat for everyone here at this table. The idea of the commune very much animates this project. This journal strives for inclusion and a diversity of voices, not to disparage others but to lift them up. It also strives to publish those who are being neglected or under-served in the literary or art communities.
Anti-Heroin Chic is a space for those who’ve been left out in the cold in all sorts of ways, this is open to interpretation. ‘Chic’ was also an aesthetic fashion-style associated with heroin, but in addition to that it was also a clique, a closed circle, so the journal is also a commentary on forms of inclusion and exclusion. Since we come down on the side of the former we try to be as egalitarian as possible in putting people’s voices & their struggles/poems/artwork out there.

Here at Quit the Habit, we would like to echo Anti-Heroin Chic’s sentiments and say we also provide a space for those who have been left out in the cold in all sorts of ways.
