Fear of Needles, Greedy Dealer 'saved' Lennon and Ono from Heroin Addiction

It was not friends or family that saved John Lennon and Yoko Ono from developing a heroin addiction, but a greedy drug dealer and a healthy fear of needles.

And, the news comes from an impeccable source - Ono herself. Ono, on BBC Radio 4 programme 'On Desert Island Discs', revealed how their dealer, by mixing baby powder with heroin to maximise his profits, inadvertently made sure that she and her late husband were exposed to lower concentrations of drug.

Another thing that made sure that they managed not to end up like many of their contemporaries was the fact that they never injected drugs as they were both scared of needles.

"Luckily we never injected because both of us were totally scared about needles. So that probably saved us and the other thing that saved us was our connection was not very good. Our connection kept getting us a lot laced with baby powder. In fact we smelt talcum powder, we said, 'What is this?' But that saved us actually," the Daily Mail quoted her, as saying.

She also revealed that if Lennon had not insisted on seeing his son Sean before the youngster went to sleep on December 8, 1980, he might have escaped the deranged fan who shot him outside the couple's apartment in New York.

"We were returning from the studio, and I said, 'Should we go and have dinner before we go home?' and John was saying, 'No, let's go home because I want to see Sean before he goes to sleep'. That was the last thing he said," Ono reveals.
