smoking heroin is probably the closest to injecting it you can feel. there's a rush - the taste of burnt sugar - a vague memory of who you are and what all this stuff around you means - and then it's fading - ...
snorting it doesn't provide the immediate rush; however, the effects do last a little longer and are a little more manageable. it does burn like hell for a few seconds, but pretty soon your body is overwhelmed by the general sense of anaesthetic.
the heroin comedown always made me a little angry, but not as sick and restless as crack. i'd be pissy for a few hours, or i'd do some more heroin. the easiest way to avoid that is to just fall asleep as the effects start wearing off. i can't speak to addiction personally, as i never did it enough; but i've seen heroin overtake people, and it's not pretty.
