There were opium-dens, where one could buy oblivion, dens of horror where the memory of old sins could be destroyed by the madness of sins that were new. | THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

“It seemed to her as if her body were altogether too heavy for her; she had the feeling so well known to opium- smokers, which they call “clou’e ‘a terre.” It is as if the body clung desperately to the earth, by its own weight, and yet in the same way as a tired child nestles to its mother’s breast. In this sensation there is a perfect lassitude mingled with a perfect longing. It may be that it is the counterpart of the freedom of the soul of which it is the herald and companion.”― Aleister Crowley, Moonchild

I cannot accurately convey the efficiency of heroin in neutralising pain. It transforms a tight white fist into a gentle brown wave, and from my first inhalation 15 years ago it fumigated my private hell.

When you can stop you don’t want to, and when you want to stop, you can’t. | THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

And I long to go back to start the journey again, to never have found such a dark dark friend, who torments the soul, where the drug addicts go, when they travel the road of snow white.
