Ewan McGregor read books about crack and heroin to prepare for the role. He also went to Glasgow and met people from the Calton Athletic Recovery Group, an organisation of recovering heroin addicts. He was taught how to cook up heroin with a spoon using glucose powder. McGregor considered injecting heroin to better understand the character, but eventually decided against it.

Snippet from my weekly blogpost - Meet the World's 10 Highest-Paid Authors in 2017. *****************
9th - E.L. James ($11.5 million)
English author, Erika Mitchell, popularly known by her pen name E. L. James, is the author of the bestselling erotic romance trilogy – Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed. The first book in the series, Fifty Shades of Grey, was published in 2011 while the other two sequels reached the bookshelves in 2012.
Sales from the trilogy pushed James to the top of Forbes’ list of highest-earning authors in 2013 with earnings of about $95 million. She is in the eight spot in 2017 because of the film adaptation of the second title in the series – Fifty Shades Darker, the screenplay failed to receive massive approval from her fans.
The 2017 movie grossed $379 million worldwide, nearly $200 million short of Fifty Shades of Grey. She published a new novel this year – Darker: Fifty Shades Darker as Told by Christian while the film adaptation of Fifty Shades Freed is set to hit the theaters in 2018.

#6 - special because of my birthday. Every word in this piece resonates with me. This post is truer than the others. Thanks for taking time to read it.
your heart accelerates, thrilled y the possibilities presented to you. a new crowd, a fresh start, a blank slate. you’re ready to wipe the sins of a previous era. you’ve made peace with the people in your past, you’re ready to let bygones be bygones. you take a step into a whole other world, one that knows nothing about you and it is pure bliss.
the rush of voices drowns out your overwhelming thoughts- the ones that try to push you over the edge. will they like me? will i be cool? will this time be different? words spin around behind your closed eyes until you can’t identify what’s made up and what’s not. its confusion, both in your mind and outside, but everything has never been more clear.
you wake up to wishes at midnight and as the clock chimes twelve, you feel hollow. the words on the screen and the bright gift wrap are too much for your senses, and all you’re concerned about is the one message that matters. you were in love this time last year, and you’re afraid it’ll happen again.
it’s the best of times, the worst of times, but more than anything, it’s the right time.
