Don't be discouraged. You did a good thing. She may have misused your kindness, but it doesn't negate that you went out of the way to help. You can't control what she chooses to do and if she does od it was her own actions and choices that led to that, but you still went out of your way to help a fellow human and you should never feel bad about that.
I wouldn't call it helping as much as I'd call it enabling. The OP got duped and put her own life at risk to help a junky get a fix. The OP could've been robbed or worse. You have to pick and choose who you be kind to, you can't just be kind to everybody without any idea of the type of character they are.
OP, glad you didn't get mugged by junkies, you learned a valuable lesson. Pick and choose your kindness.
