—Herman Melville (18191891)
“I feel that any form of so called psychotherapy is strongly contraindicated for addicts.... The question Why did you start using narcotics in the first place? should never be asked. It is quite as irrelevant to treatment as it would be to ask a malarial patient why he went to a malarial area.”
—William Burroughs (b. 1914)
“Thank Heaven! the crisis
The danger, is past,
And the lingering illness,
Is over at last M,
And the fever called Living
Is conquered at last.”
