Description : Read Now The Book Of Drugs by Mike Doughty and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. mike doughty first came to prominence as the leader of the band soul coughing then did an abrupt sonic left turn, much to the surprise of his audience, transforming into a solo performer of stark, dusky, but strangely hopeful tunes. he battled addiction, gave up fame when his old band was at the height of its popularity, drove thousands of miles, alone, across america, with just an acoustic guitar. his candid, hilarious, self-lacerating memoir, the book of drugs—featuring cameos by redman, ani difranco, the late jeff buckley, and others—is the story of his band's rise and bitter collapse, the haunted and darkly comical life of addiction, and the perhaps even weirder world of recovery.

Description : Read Now Memoirs Of An Addicted Brain by Marc Lewis and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. a gripping, triumphant memoir about the power of addiction and its effect on the brain marc lewis knows addiction: that desperate ambition to get high accompanied him around the world for many years. in the 1960s, lewis was a teenager in boarding school, experimenting with cough syrup and alcohol to assuage his depression. when he moved to berkeley, california, the pulsing heart of the counter-cultural movement, he began using lsd and heroin. his spiralling journey of addiction eventually led him to asia, where he sniffed nitrous oxide in the malay jungle, took speed in kuala lumpur, and lost himself in the opium dens of calcutta. this was the beginning of his descent into a moonlit world of crime, poverty, and desperation. returning to toronto, lewis lived a double life: by day, he was a psychology student; and by night, he stole from homes and laboratories to get high. thirty-four years on, lewis is a neuroscientist, and he studies the brains of troubled children. but he never forgets that he was once one of those kids — and that, no matter how many scientific conferences he attends, he always will be. in this mesmerising memoir, lewis recounts his relationship with drugs from the inside out, giving a revelatory analysis of the chemical changes in his brain that sustained his addiction. this is not just the story of a man who found his calling while fighting a habit that crossed continents and brought him in contact with the wilder edges of life. it is also a penetrating, powerful analysis of addiction, offering a fascinating insight into the human brain, and what drives it to self-destruction.

Description : Read Now Drugs by J. R. Helton and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. drugs is a story about jake stewart, a middle-class american from texas who uses drugs and likes them. more importantly, he lives with them. in author j. r. helton's hilarious prose, jake inimitably narrates the ups and downs of being a functional user of marijuana, cocaine, mdma, alcohol, nicotine, brand name hydrocodone, and countless other drugs readily available and commonly partaken of in modern america. we follow jake on car rides with his coke dealer to menace connections in supermarket parking lots, buying prescription opiates from a megacorporate health and beauty clinic, falling in love with his wife while on a series of mushroom trips through san antonio and austin, binging on nitrous oxide canisters to spectral visions of julianne moore whispering his name. along the way, jake explains the effects of the drugs he's done--not only on his body but on his soul--and at the same time lampoons an america that pretends, against all reason, that drug use is the province of the weak and the socially outcast, while simultaneously getting high and profiting off of it: an america in which drug use is not just a part of the american mainstream, but may be one of the only sane responses to the american mainstream. the contemporary heir of william s. burroughs's classic junky, j. r. helton's novel drugs shows us--through sly wit, deceptively powerful prose, and the unmistakable ring of truth--a side of america that most of us allow to remain hidden in plain sight.
