      Well usually people with serious addictions look for a stronger and stronger high, and they'll begin mixing drugs to get a more powerful effect. Obviously if he managed to come close to killing himself three times in only two years, it shows he was trying to get more of a high. When people do stuff like heroine so often, they start to become semi-immune to it's effects, so they inject more trying to get the same high they used to.
