Writing is an interesting form of expression, and in the same breath, a very interesting profession. For everyone who has ever dreamt about doing it, have you spent a great deal of time wondering what it would be like as a profession? You imagine the pure elation of what it must be like for people to want to read what you have to say. You think about how stellar it must be, once you know you have affected hundreds of thousands of people, in some way or another, with your words. You think about that high, but you don’t think about the other extreme. The act of working, and what that entails. If you want to know the cost, look no further than the number of high-profile, life-changing authors who took their own lives. This is not some weird coincidence. This is a fucking job hazard, and the numbers speak for themselves. How much you will enjoy writing as work is directly proportional to how much you love spending time with yourself. Do you love yourself? Well, you better atleast be able to stand yourself if you come into this field, because it seems, in most cases, we are our own worst enemies, and we don’t know it until it is too late.
The world needs to understand that writing and doing drugs go hand-in-hand. It is a lonely, solitary lifestyle that can sometimes leave holes in the soul, and you know what people often use to fill holes in their souls, don’t you? Drugs. While drugs themselves often only make more holes over time, it is still a short-term fix for some of that aching. And the most honest authors in existence do not shy away from that, or fear it as a taboo. Rather, they embrace it as being a part of who, or what, they are. That does not mean that every writer you ever read is on, or has taken, drugs. What it does mean, though, is that there is a good deal of fiction ABOUT drugs, that was also conceived while the writer was on drugs. That is like drugception: When drugs take drugs. Here are six books about or inspired by drugs, and all the magic and madness they cause. And remember kids, don’t do drugs….that aren’t yours. Unless someone offers. Then it’s okay.
Drugs are bad for you, OK? Can we get that out of the way immediately? Often, even the most minor drug usage will lead to you killing people and doing jail time. And the jail time often hints that you may be raped. So ultimately, if you do drugs, you will get raped. I came to that conclusion through what scientists often call deductive reasoning. So don’t do drugs. Instead, let movies do drugs FOR you. These eight sequences just happen to portray drug use in a very realistic, and oft terrifying way. Remember kids, drug use doesn’t always end with bright orange Cheetos fingers and a good night’s sleep. Some drugs end in ass to ass dildo play.
