Paul Austin was named a 2007 tuition scholar at the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference. A former firefighter, he has more than twenty-five years of experience working in emergency rooms. He lives in Durham, North Carolina.

This Paul Austin is not the same Paul Austin who wrote, "Return of the Lost One," or who co-wrote "I Am a Woman." If anyone knows how to remove these titles from my profile, please let me know.

“The basic concept of microdosing is nothing new. Albert Hofmann, who first synthesized LSD in 1938, considered it one of the drug’s most promising, and least researched, applications. He was among the first to realize its antidepressant and cognition-enhancing potential,[vi] famously taking between 10 and 20 μg himself, twice a week, for the last few decades of his life.[vii]”
Paul Austin, Microdosing Psychedelics: A Practical Guide to Upgrade Your Life

“In 2014, the r/microdosing subreddit was set up as a place for microdosers to share their experiences. Since then, it has become an extremely active forum with tens of thousands of subscribers and a steady stream of new members.”
Paul Austin, Microdosing Psychedelics: A Practical Guide to Upgrade Your Life

“Humans are irrational creatures. Many of our decisions are not based on a logical thought process. Our “Reptilian Brain” has an abundance of cognitive biases that prevent us from making choices based on pure logic. Society’s perception of the utility of psychedelics is a case in point. Considering the documented history, the scientific findings, and the anecdotal reports, it’s obvious that we as a society are not thinking logically about their use.”
