The result is by turns enlightened, nightmarish and witty – a faithful mirror of the drug itself.

    Hopped up on Opium Confessions!

    I love Confessions of an English Opium-eater!It's one of the best books I've ever read, the way De Quincy depicts his life, along with others just takes you to where he is,what he's experiencing,feeling, everything! I think everyone who's ever considered doing drugs should read this then make their decision.
