Mathew Wiggins

Born
Died

Little Matt, as we referred to him, was amazing. We struggled with addiction together. He would get sober and I would be strung out and then I would get sober and he would be strung out. We were never too far apart. He was on his way to finishing a degree in nursing as well.

Tell us about Mathew's struggle with addiction

We struggled together with a meth addiction, but he got bored and decided to start mixing heroin. I followed for a short while, but was too scared so I just stayed in my own misery with my own drug of choice. He struggled with addiction all of his life. His mother was addicted to pills and sent him to hustle at a young age. He was clean for a couple years and then his mother died of a drug overdose. His addiction became a heroin only thing and he met the love of his life who was also a heroin addict. On January 29th 2010 his partner died of complications due to drugs and MS. 2 days later Matt was found dead of a drug overdose. Addiction is a powerful powerful thing. :-(

What made Mathew smile?

What made him smile...? His partner made him smile. Life without drugs made him smile. In the end seeing his partners smile again probably made him smile one last time.

What do you miss most about Mathew?

I miss being able to pick up the phone and saying hello to him.
