You Should Become a Drug Therapist

Everything about taking drugs is initially incredibly positive, otherwise no one would do it, but afterwards everything is negative. All the media on drugs is negative. Its all about the drug problem or drugs and crime, drugs and addiction, drugs and death. Every single patient with a drug history comes in to see me looking glum and grim. They think they will never be happy again, they think they are diseased, addicted and have wasted years of their life.

Ten Things You Got Right On Drugs

I don’t like the word ‘sobriety’, it sounds dull and lifeless. If that’s all you have to look forward to its no wonder people relapse. I reckon we should use ‘extraordinary’ as the state we want to achieve after quitting drugs or alcohol. I don’t like the use of ‘clean’ – meaning being off drugs – either. Saying you are ‘clean’ suggests that what you did before was unclean, but this is yet another outdated concept. You may have had some profound life-altering experiences on drugs and this is an asset if you use those experiences as a template for something you want to achieve again without drugs.

Marijuana Effects: Magic or Madness

Just like millions of other people, my drug-taking journey began with marijuana.

I immediately loved it because it allowed me to experience the magic of non-ordinary states of consciousness.

Marijuana changed my life and there is no doubt in my mind that it has been responsible for a major shift in Western consciousness. But marijuana effects also contributed to the development of severe paranoia and lethargy in me which ultimately drove me to hard drugs and speed addiction. Read more
