Stephenie Meyer
“He's like a drug for you, Bella.”
Stephenie Meyer, Eclipse

bell hooks
“Genuine love is rarely an emotional space where needs are instantly gratified. To know love we have to invest time and commitment...'dreaming that love will save us, solve all our problems or provide a steady state of bliss or security only keeps us stuck in wishful fantasy, undermining the real power of the love -- which is to transform us.' Many people want love to function like a drug, giving them an immediate and sustained high. They want to do nothing, just passively receive the good feeling.”
bell hooks

“I didn't realize there was a ranking." I said. "Sadie frowned. "What do you mean?" "A ranking," I said. "You know, what's crazier than what." "Oh, sure there is," Sadie said. She sat back in her chair. "First you have your generic depressives. They're a dime a dozen and usually pretty boring. Then you've got the bulimics and the anorexics. They're slightly more interesting, although usually they're just girls with nothing better to do. Then you start getting into the good stuff: the arsonists, the schizophrenics, the manic-depressives. You can never quite tell what those will do. And then you've got the junkies. They're completely tragic, because chances are they're just going to go right back on the stuff when they're out of here." "So junkies are at the top of the crazy chain," I said. Sadie shook her head. "Uh-uh," she said. "Suicides are." I looked at her. "Why?" "Anyone can be crazy," she answered. "That's usually just because there's something screwed up in your wiring, you know? But suicide is a whole different thing. I mean, how much do you have to hate yourself to want to just wipe yourself out?”
Michael Thomas Ford

Ed Sheeran
“It's too cold outside for angels to fly.”

Ed Sheeran
“And they say
She's in the class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been that way since eighteen, but lately,
Her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
And they scream
The worst things in life come free to us
Cos we're just under the upperhand
Go mad for a couple grams
And she don't want to go outside tonight
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland
Or sells love to another man
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
Angels to fly”
Ed Sheeran

“Every time I draw a clean breath, I'm like a fish out of water.”
Narcotics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous

Ed Sheeran
“It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
An angel will die
Covered in white
Closed eye
And hoping for a better life
This time, we'll fade out tonight
Straight down the line”
Ed Sheeran

“I get so high when you're with me then crash and crave you when you leave”
Ke$ha, Ke$ha - Animal Piano, Vocal and Guitar Chords

Sebastian Marincolo
“The movie Koyaanisqatsi shows non-commented time-lapse footage and focuses our attention on the very rhythm of our civilized modern life and nature. A marijuana high can do something for a user similar to what this time-lapse footage does. The enhancement of episodic memory and the acceleration of associative streams of memories can alter and enhance our recognition of patterns in our lives in various ways. If we are presented with quick associative chains of past experiences, we can see a pattern in a body of information that is usually not at once presented to our “inner eye” as such.”
Sebastian Marincolo

Cameron Conaway
“In other words, I tasted a different drug. A drug called progress.”

“We can bring in all the guns and drugs we need and bring out all the bodies of people we don’t.”
Neil Walker, Drug Gang Takedown

Thomm Quackenbush
“It is said—not exclusively by people with eating disorders—that food is a drug. Who doesn't feel better when given chocolate at the end of a miserable day? To your brain, real chocolate mimics love. (For all its miracle, the brain subsists on illusions as much as it does much of the fat you eat. Chocolate supplies both.)”
Thomm Quackenbush, Holidays with Bigfoot

Brittany K. Barnett
“At school, the DARE program brought friendly police officers into our classrooms to convince us that drug abuse was everywhere, a mortal threat, and that only the weakest, most morally bankrupt individuals would succumb to it-the losers, those who didn't love themselves enough or weren't strong enough. I loved Mama through and through, but it was hard to to internalize the message.”
Brittany K. Barnett, A Knock at Midnight: A Story of Hope, Justice, and Freedom

Michael Bassey Johnson
“When the youths have jobs to do, they won’t have drugs and crimes to do.”
Michael Bassey Johnson, Before You Doubt Yourself: Pep Talks and other Crucial Discussions

Steven Magee
“If I get COVID-19, please give me the same drug treatment as President Trump.”
Steven Magee

George Orwell
“He hated the pictures, of course, seldom went there even when he could afford it. Why encourage the art that is destined to replace literature? But still, there is a kind of soggy attraction about it. To sit on the padded seat in the warm smoke-scented darkness, letting the flickering drivel on the screen gradually overwhelm you - feeling the waves of its stillness lap you round till you seem to drown, intoxicated, in a viscous sea - after all, it's the kind of drug we need. The right drug for friendless people.”
George Orwell, Keep the Aspidistra Flying

“DMT is so extraordinary because it’s the only psychedelic that naturally occurs in the human body. The body, it seems, wants and needs the capacity to have psychedelic trips. They are a primary means for escaping from the hopeless and dismal prison of materialism.”
Jack Tanner, The Dimitri Revolution: How DMT Changed Humanity

Steven Magee

Radhika Vijay
“Pharmacology is all about drug concept, origin, understanding, evaluation, rethinking and revising, aptly correlating, comprehending the interactions, effects and eventually uses, adverse effects and finally relevance and applications!!”

“Fame is a dangerous addictive drug . People lose their character, morals, principles, mind , manners, sanity just to have it.”
De philosopher DJ Kyos

“Common sense told me that I didn’t want to lie to my family constantly, steal all the time, and drug myself
into a coma. Common sense also told me that if I didn’t want to keep making these same stupid mistakes, I would need to change and stop performing the same stupid actions. But I didn’t have the power or discipline to change. So, I kept doing the same things over and over, each time feeling more hopeless than before.”
Michael J Heil, Pursued: God’s relentless pursuit and a drug addict’s journey to finding purpose

“The more I reached my goals, the more money I made from drug dealing, the more girls I hooked up with, the more adventures I had, and the more accomplishments I reached, the more messed up I felt. For years, I strived to reach my fullest potential, until one day I had to ask myself: What if the whole purpose of life isn’t getting everything we want and living to make ourselves feel good all the time?”
Michael J Heil, Pursued: God’s relentless pursuit and a drug addict’s journey to finding purpose

Aldous Huxley
“Drug-taking, it is significant, plays an important part in almost every primitive religion. The Persians and, before them, the Greeks and probably the ancient Hindus used alcohol to produce religious ecstasy; the Mexicans procured the beatific vision by eating a poisonous cactus; a toadstool filled the Shamans of Siberia with enthusiasm and endowed them with the gift of tongues.”
Aldous Huxley, Moksha: Writings on Psychedelics & the Visionary Experience

Robert M. Sapolsky
“If we were designed by engineers, as we consumed more, we’d desire less. But our frequent human tragedy is that the more we consume, the hungrier we get. More and faster and stronger.”
Robert M. Sapolsky, Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst
