Drugs quotes by Peter A. Levine
#3. In moving through apprehensive chills to mounting excitement and waves of moist tingling warmth, the body, with its innate capacity to heal, melts the iceberg created by deeply frozen trauma. Anxiety and despair can become creative wellspring when we allow ourselves to experience bodily sensations, such as trembling, that stem from traumatic symptoms. Held within the symptoms of trauma are the very energies, potentials, and resources necessary for their constructive transformation. The creative healing process can be blocked in a number of ways - by using drugs to suppress symptoms, by overemphasizing adjustment or control, or by denial or invalidation of feelings and sensations. #Quote by Peter A. Levine
Drugs quotes by Kurt Cobain
#4. I bought a gun and chose drugs instead. #Quote by Kurt Cobain
Drugs quotes by Michael Josephson

Drugs quotes by Anjelica Huston
#6. Of course drugs were fun. And that's what's so stupid about anti-drug campaigns: they don't admit that. I can't say I feel particularly scarred or lessened by my experimentation with drugs. They've gotten a very bad name. #Quote by Anjelica Huston
Drugs quotes by Dan Savage
#7. Take me to the driest county in the most conservative state, and in two hours this determined hedonist will find you all the drugs, whores, and booze you'll need to pass an eventful weekend. #Quote by Dan Savage
Drugs quotes by Donald Trump
#8. We are not talking about isolation. We're talking about security. We're not talking about religion. We're talking about security. Our country is out of control. People are pouring across the southern border. I will build a wall. It will be a great wall. People will not come in unless they come in legally. Drugs will not pour through that wall. #Quote by Donald Trump
Drugs quotes by H.L. Mencken
#9. A fool who, after plain warning, persists in dosing himself with dangerous drugs should be free to do so, for his death is a benefit to the race in general. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Drugs quotes by Lydhia Marie
#10. Or when you're drunk, your brain doesn't have the ability to differentiate your feelings from your selves', which leads you to act impulsively when influenced by your Red-self; like a child, when influenced by your Yellow-self; or to do everything slowly and act like Einstein, when influenced by your Blue-self. Same thing applies for other types of drugs." -Samera #Quote by Lydhia Marie

Drugs quotes by Henry Rollins
#12. After ...

Drugs quotes by Diana Trilling
#16. In the bad sixties, when drugs came into widespread use among adolescents and when Scarsdale mothers developed the habit of not asking about each others children for fear of what they'd hear, one knew that they were speaking-or not speaking, keeping their unhappy silence-on behalf of stricken motherhood everywhere in the country. #Quote by Diana Trilling
Drugs quotes by Jesse Ventura
#17. I think a person who is disabled should be disabled by no act of their own. If you become disabled because of alcoholism, drugs, or things of that nature, I do not think those conditions qualify someone to be called disabled. I think those conditions result from personal decisions. #Quote by Jesse Ventura
Drugs quotes by Jason Whitlock
#18. And that the arming of so many black youths, uh, and loading up our community with drugs, and then just having an open shooting gallery, is the work of people who obviously don't have our best interests [at heart]. #Quote by Jason Whitlock
Drugs quotes by David Sedaris
#19. Still, there were moments when, against all reason, I thought I might be a genius. These moments were provoked not by any particular accomplishment but by cocaine and crystal methamphetamine - drugs that allow you to lean over a mirror with a straw up your nose, suck up an entire week's paycheck, and think, God, I'm smart. #Quote by David Sedaris
Drugs quotes by J.M. Darhower
#20. You're too good for me."
He laughed. "Are we talking about the same person? The selfish fucker who curses and yells, blows up cars and beats up people, because he has a temper he can't control? You know, the one who drinks like a fish and fries his brain with drugs? That person is too good for you?"
She shook her head. "I'm talking about the boy who shared his chocolate bar with me when he probably never shared anything before, who gave me his mama's favourite book, because he thought I deserved to read. The one who seems to be constantly fixing me up when I get hurt. I'm talking about the boy who treats me like I'm a regular girl, the one who desperately needs his bedroom cleaned and laundry washed but chooses to live in a mess and wear dirty clothes, because he's too polite to ask the girl he kisses for help."
"Wow," Carmine said. "I'd like to meet that motherfucker. #Quote by J.M. Darhower
Drugs quotes by Jamie Zawinski
#21. Don't do drugs, kids. Stay in school. #Quote by Jamie Zawinski
Drugs quotes by Johnny Rich
#22. You need to bridge the gap between reality and freedom. Drugs are the bridge. #Quote by Johnny Rich
Drugs quotes by David Millar

Drugs quotes by Mario
#24. I grew up in Baltimore which is a one of the biggest drug cities. I've seen a lot of drugs ... so it was always around me, but I never really indulged in those type of activities. I never used drugs in my life and I was blessed enough with the wisdom and the strength to move forward. #Quote by Mario
Drugs quotes by John Jodzio
#25. I hated how sometimes life threw you a curveball - how you thought you were going to make some money selling a stolen tiger to make your dad proud, but then all the sudden there were drugs instead of money and then you were probably going to relapse mostly because you didn't want to disappoint your best friend who had recently drawn a very funny cartoon about an octopus on your ass cheeks that would not come off your body no matter how hard you scrubbed. #Quote by John Jodzio
Drugs quotes by Louise Blackwick
#26. It is only through an altered state of consciousness that a lesser being can see into the invisible and the immaterial. In our understanding, middling, certain substances are known to alter the manner a choice has been made. Some drugs will make one decide things one normally would not.'
'And choices are our domain,' explained another Master. 'The fabric of reality is stringed together by the unseen Threads of choice and consequence. As actors, storytellers and audience of reality, we cannot afford reality to unwire. #Quote by Louise Blackwick
Drugs quotes by R.D. Ronald
#27. Scott glanced at his watch but didn't register what it said. The notion of time had become as absurd as the quietly glowing trees. #Quote by R.D. Ronald
Drugs quotes by Sue Kelly

Drugs quotes by Dane Cook
#29. I have never even had a sip of alcohol, never have done drugs. The hardest thing I have ever done would be Pepsi. #Quote by Dane Cook
Drugs quotes by Luis J Rodriguez
#30. To go against gangs or drugs is meaningless unless this is mostly done by filling in the empties, the vacuums, and stop the neglect and harm we do as detached, mean, irresponsible adults and communities. The answer is in our hands. #Quote by Luis J Rodriguez
Drugs quotes by Michelle Alexander
#31. This view, while understandable, given the sensational media coverage of crack in the 1980s and 1990s, is simply wrong. While it is true that the publicity surrounding crack cocaine led to a dramatic increase in funding for the drug war (as well as to sentencing policies that greatly exacerbated racial disparities in incarceration rates), there is no truth to the notion that the War on Drugs was launched in response to crack cocaine. President Ronald Reagan officially announced the current drug war in 1982, before crack became an issue in the media or a crisis in poor black neighborhoods. A few years after the drug war was declared, crack began to spread rapidly in the poor black neighborhoods of Los Angeles and later emerged in cities across the country.2 The Reagan administration hired staff to publicize the emergence of crack cocaine in 1985 as part of a strategic effort to build public and legislative support for the war. #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Drugs quotes by Michelle Alexander
#32. As if the free military equipment, training, and cash grants were not enough, the Reagan administration provided law enforcement with yet another financial incentive to devote extraordinary resources to drug law enforcement, rather than more serious crimes: state and local law enforcement agencies were granted the authority to keep, for their own use, the vast majority of cash and assets they seize when waging the drug war. This dramatic change in policy gave state and local police an enormous stake in the War on Drugs - not in its success, but in its perpetual existence. Law enforcement gained a pecuniary interest not only in the forfeited property, but in the profitability of the drug market itself. #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Drugs quotes by Gabor Mate
#33. The war mentality represents an unfortunate confluence of ignorance, fear, prejudice, and profit ... The ignorance exists in its own right and is further perpetuated by government propaganda. The fear is that of ordinary people scared by misinformation but also that of leaders who may know better but are intimidated by the political costs of speaking out on such a heavily moralized and charged issue. The prejudice is evident in the contradiction that some harmful substances (alcohol, tobacco) are legal while others, less harmful in some ways, are contraband. This has less to do with the innate danger of the drugs than with which populations are publicly identified with using the drugs. The white and wealthier the population, the more acceptable is the substance. And profit. If you have fear, prejudice, and ignorance, there will be profit. #Quote by Gabor Mate
Drugs quotes by Shane Parrish
#34. If I were a Dr., I'd prescribe books. They can be just as powerful as drugs. #Quote by Shane Parrish
Drugs quotes by Andy Gray
#35. Anyone who takes drugs should be hammered. #Quote by Andy Gray
Drugs quotes by Josh Hanagarne
#36. Do you ever get tired of being so funny? It's a nice little smoke screen, but I know you. Confident people do stuff. They get stuff done. They make things, even if it's just making money. You know what you're making?"

"It doesn't matter."

"You're making our couch sag. That's about it. You're making your mom sad because you're not trying. You're making your siblings miserable because you're acting like you're miserable."

"I am. I'm depressed and on a bunch of drugs. I want to take more of them every day just to feel different."

"This isn't depression and that's not their fault. But I don't want to fight. I think what we're about to do is going to give you a way to make some progress."

"There's nothing important about lifting weights."

"There's nothing insignificant about progress. Let's just give it a try. #Quote by Josh Hanagarne
Drugs quotes by Michael Badnarik
#37. On average, drug prisoners spend more time in federal prison than rapists, who often get out on early release because of the overcrowding in prison caused by the Drug War. #Quote by Michael Badnarik
Drugs quotes by S.A. Tawks
#38. She's happy to be home but being home means that it's an end to her adventure and escape. #Quote by S.A. Tawks
Drugs quotes by Alice Hoffman
#39. I only have one story now.
The story was heroin. It was made out of sensation, not words; it was invisible and murderous and unstoppable. Sam disappeared from her slowly, like a snowman melting, until all Blanca had left of him was a pool of freezing-cold blue water, arctic cold, sorrow colored, evaporating with every year. She did her best to hold onto him, but it was impossible, like carrying ice into the desert or making time stand still. After the final fight when Sam moved out, Blanca saw him less and less often. He no longer had a presence; he was like the outline of a person, an absence rather than a full-fledged human being. #Quote by Alice Hoffman
Drugs quotes by Tom Feiling
#40. Many educators are loth to admit that the pursuit of pleasure might be a valid reason for drug use, or to recognize young people's curiosity, their need to experiment, to take risks and define their own boundaries. #Quote by Tom Feiling
Drugs quotes by Ryan O'Connell
#41. I think the reason why twentysomethings are so fixated on age is because we feel a pressure to be a certain way at 23, at 25, at 29. There are all of these invisible deadlines with our careers and with love and drinking and drugs. I can't do coke at 25. I need to be in a LTR at 27. I can't vomit from drinking at 26. I just can't! We feel so much guilt for essentially acting our age and making mistakes. We're obsessed with this idea of being domesticated and having our shit together. It's kind of sad actually because I don't think we ever fully get a chance to enjoy our youth. We're so concerned about doing things "the right way" that we lose any sense of pleasure in doing things the wrong way. Youth may be truly wasted on the young. #Quote by Ryan O'Connell
Drugs quotes by Matthew Quick
#42. I nod and I promise I will report any hallucinations to my mother, but I do not really believe I will hallucinate no matter what type of drugs he gives me, especially since I know he will not be giving me LSD or anything like that. I figure weaker people probably complain about their drugs, but I am not weak and I can control my mind pretty well. #Quote by Matthew Quick
Drugs quotes by Karen Kingsbury
#43. Real friends ... don't give you heroin and cocaine." He took a step closer. "And they don't stand by and do nothing if they think one of their buddies is doing drugs. #Quote by Karen Kingsbury
Drugs quotes by Tommy Chong
#44. The good thing about poverty is it keeps you from getting in trouble because if you can't afford drugs, people will stop giving them to you very quickly. So, being poor really helps - it's the success that kills you. #Quote by Tommy Chong
Drugs quotes by Patrick O'Brian
#45. they made nothing of the administration of the drugs other than the fact that the groans in the cabin stopped; but they did catch some words about "delighted to attend the opening of the body, in the event of a contrary result" that earned Dr Maturin some brooding glances as the two medical men went over the side, for the Otters loved their captain. #Quote by Patrick O'Brian
Drugs quotes by Jarod Kintz
#46. My drug of choice is love. Sure, I've tried other drugs, but no other drug gets both the dealer and user high from every transaction. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Drugs quotes by Steven Machat
#47. Marijuana does not lead to harder drugs. People will get bored of the pot and move on down the line to stronger drugs to get the high they need. They either stay with pot or quit. #Quote by Steven Machat
Drugs quotes by Sarah Kane
#48. - I won't be able to think. I won't be able to work.
- Nothing will interfere with your work like suicide.
(Silence)
- I dreamt that I went to the doctor's and she gave me eight minutes to live. I'd been sitting in the fucking waiting room for half an hour.
(A long silence)
- Okay, let's do it, let's do the drugs, let's do the chemical lobotomy, let's shut down the higher functions of my brain and perhaps I'll be a bit more fucking capable of living.
Let's do it. #Quote by Sarah Kane
Drugs quotes by Denzel Washington
#49. Taking the money from drug operations and all that sort of stuff is something that goes past what most of us in society would expect a policeman should do. That temptation hits the police force at the same time as the temptation to take those drugs that are readily available hits the people on the streets. #Quote by Denzel Washington
Drugs quotes by Amy Lane
#50. Jared?" "Hm?" "You're pretty fucking sick, right?" The thermometer said 103 degrees. "Naw. Need sleep." "Good, so you're at death's door, and you can't run away when I tell you something." "What?" "I think we're in love." "Yup. I'm out of here." Not a muscle twitched. "Good. I love you. I'm pissed at you. If you ever do blow again, I will break up with you, but I love you." "Love you too." "No more drugs." "'Kay." "Promise." "Promise. #Quote by Amy Lane
Drugs quotes by Caroline Mitchell
#51. should have been looking for concealed weapons or drugs. She guessed from the intel picture it was Shelly. Her low-cut top displayed her prominent chest bones and was decorated #Quote by Caroline Mitchell
Drugs quotes by Roger Kimball
#52. The institutionalization of the Beat ethic has been a moral, aesthetic, and intellectual disaster of the first order. (It has also been a disaster for fashion and manners, but that is a separate subject.) We owe to the 1960s the ultimate institutionalization of immoralist radicalism: the institutionalization of drugs, pseudo-spirituality, promiscuous sex, virulent anti-Americanism, naive anti-capitalism, and the precipitous decline of artistic and intellectual standards. But the1960s and 1970s only codified and extended into the middle class the radical spirit of the Beats, who, in more normal times, would have remained what they were in the beginning; members of a fringe movement that provided stand-up comics with material. #Quote by Roger Kimball
Drugs quotes by Billie Joe Armstrong
#53. I was on drugs when I wrote some of my songs. It was a rough time for me, but I'm lucky enough to be one of the people who learned from that experience and moved on, where other people just got addicted and more addicted and more addicted until it killed them. #Quote by Billie Joe Armstrong
Drugs quotes by Tim Robbins
#54. I've used drugs that I do consider to be dangerous, drugs that are potentially detrimental to kids and society at large. #Quote by Tim Robbins
Drugs quotes by Brian Herbert
#55. Baron Vladimir Harkonnen had made a lifetime career of seeking new experiences. He dabbled in hedonistic pleasures - rich foods, exotic drugs, deviant sex - discovering things he had never done before.
But a baby in Harkonnen Keep ... how would he handle that? #Quote by Brian Herbert
Drugs quotes by Ottessa Moshfegh
#56. People would be so much more at ease if they acted on impulse rather than reason. That's why drugs are so effective in curing mental illness - because they impair our judgment. Don't try to think too much. #Quote by Ottessa Moshfegh
Drugs quotes by Penelope Douglas
#57. Drugs are a crutch for people too ignorant to self-destruct on their own. #Quote by Penelope Douglas
Drugs quotes by C.M. Stunich
#58. The drugs are my weakness, but the music is my strength. Sometimes, I forget that. #Quote by C.M. Stunich
Drugs quotes by Dennis McKenna
#59. I get frustrated with people who say that a drug experience can have no spiritual validity. I'm here to tell you that all experience is a drug experience. We're all on drugs all the time, largely because we are MADE of drugs #Quote by Dennis McKenna
Drugs quotes by Rose McGowan
#60. There are moments when you act that you actually disappear from your body, and that's amazing. That's better than any drug, I would imagine. People take drugs to disappear from themself, and that's what it feels like when you hit that moment. #Quote by Rose McGowan
Drugs quotes by Peter Carey
#61. You're discussing recreational drugs?" He stood and shut the door and came back looking very serious indeed. I was chastened, as I should have been. "Sorry. What have I never minded about?" "Well, I have truthfully always imagined it was my talent, my gift to introduce my friends to each other. Not one I could ever use for my own happiness, I must say. #Quote by Peter Carey
Drugs quotes by Gabor Mate
#62. To expect an addict to give up her drug is like asking the average person to imagine living without all her social skills, support networks, emotional stability and sense of physical and psychological comfort. Those are the qualities that, in their illusory and evanescent way, drugs give the addict. People like Serena and Celia and the others whose portraits have appeared in this book perceive their drugs as their "rock and salvation."

Thus, for all the valid reasons we have for wanting the addict to "just say no," we first need to offer her something to which she can say "yes." We must provide an island of relief. We have to demonstrate that esteem, acceptance, love and humane interaction are realities in this world, contrary to what she, the addict, has learned all her life. It is impossible to create that island for people unless they can feel secure that their substance dependency will be satisfied as long as they need it. #Quote by Gabor Mate
Drugs quotes by Jacob G. Hornberger
#63. There's the old saying that doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is the definition of insanity. There are few better places to apply that adage than the drug war. It's time to end it. It's time to restore peace and harmony to Latin America and the United States. It's time to end the failed war on drugs. It's time to legalize drugs. #Quote by Jacob G. Hornberger
Drugs quotes by T. J. MacGregor
#64. It was Tark's experience that TV addicts were usually addicted to something else as well. Food, booze, drugs, sex, money, take your pick. #Quote by T. J. MacGregor
Drugs quotes by Todd Rundgren
#65. I prefer hallucinations cause they tend to make more sense than experience. #Quote by Todd Rundgren
Drugs quotes by Leslie Jordan
#66. When I was writing the book, I thought "Who wants to hear another story about some actor who lost his way?" But my story is a little unique in that I realized when I was 14 years old that I was different. I think a lot of gay people use drugs and alcohol to quell that fear and shame - especially people of my age. #Quote by Leslie Jordan
Drugs quotes by Diana Peterfreund
#67. I don't do drugs, I've never been arrested, and from what I hear, I'm not too shabby in bed. Not that any of you people will ever have the opportunity to discover that first-hand! #Quote by Diana Peterfreund
Drugs quotes by Mike Tyson
#68. I may have smoked too much weed, but I wasn't taking drugs or anything. #Quote by Mike Tyson
Drugs quotes by Pat Paulsen
#69. They said I ignored the drug problem. Well, I gave speeches on drugs, I wrote books on drugs. I did darn near everything on drugs! #Quote by Pat Paulsen
Drugs quotes by Joey Truman
#70. His mom was high when Whitey was born. She was also high when she named him. Esmerelda was the name of her sister, the only person in the world who ever treated her decently, and Torno was short for tornado, because that's how it felt when Whitey came out.
Whitey's mom had a penchant for the cocaine. #Quote by Joey Truman
Drugs quotes by Billy Graham
#71. One of the characteristics of some drugs (such as cocaine) is that they make a person feel strong and alert - when in fact the opposite is the case. Don't allow yourself to be deceived. #Quote by Billy Graham
Drugs quotes by Robert  Whitaker
#72. That experience allowed me to see this therapeutic principle in action," Stanton said. "You just can't organize yourself without a connection to another human being, and you can't make that connection if you embalm yourself with drugs." (349) #Quote by Robert Whitaker
Drugs quotes by Harold George Koenig
#73. Probably saying a 30-second prayer at a key moment has done more good than any psychotherapy or drugs I've prescribed. #Quote by Harold George Koenig
Drugs quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#74. I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom. #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Drugs quotes by Vincent Gallo
#75. I don't drink any coffee or take any drugs and I don't smoke cigarettes and I don't eat sugar and I don't take any medicine at all. I eat a lot of fish, vegetables, and I stay away from starches. #Quote by Vincent Gallo
Drugs quotes by David Eagleman
#76. Even while it's true that we are tied to our molecules and proteins and neurons - as strokes and hormones and drugs and microorganisms indisputably tell us - it does not logically follow that humans are best described only as pieces and parts. #Quote by David Eagleman
Drugs quotes by William Shakespeare
#77. O true apothecary!
Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die #Quote by William Shakespeare
Drugs quotes by Jerry Stahl
#78. To me, God is like this happy bus driver. #Quote by Jerry Stahl
Drugs quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#79. We won't dispassionately investigate or rationally debate which drugs do what damage and whether or how much of that damage is the result of criminalization. We'd rather work ourselves into a screaming fit of puritanism and then go home and take a pill. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Drugs quotes by Frederic C. Howe
#80. In the days of peace every precaution should be taken to insure that there are no forces making for war. Just as we now forbid the trafficking in certain drugs, in the sale of poisons, just as we forbid the making of any imprint that suggests a coin or currency, just as experience has demonstrated that men may not make profit out of certain things because of the danger of abuse, so in the gravest of all dangers laws should be passed taking from those who might gain from war or preparations for war every hope that advantage could come to them by such a calamity. #Quote by Frederic C. Howe
Drugs quotes by Aleister Crowley
#81. Your kiss is bitter with cocaine. #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Drugs quotes by Bruce Feiler
#82. A recent wave of research shows that children who eat dinner with their families are less likely to drink, smoke, do drugs, get pregnant, commit suicide, and develop eating disorders. Additional research found that children who enjoy family meals have larger vocabularies, better manners, healthier diets, and higher self-esteem. #Quote by Bruce Feiler
Drugs quotes by Mark Carwardine
#83. In every remote corner of the world there are people like Carl Jones and Don Merton who have devoted their lives to saving threatened species. Very often, their determination is all that stands between an endangered species and extinction.
But why do they bother? Does it really matter if the Yangtze river dolphin, or the kakapo, or the northern white rhino, or any other species live on only in scientists' notebooks?
Well, yes, it does. Every animal and plant is an integral part of its environment: even Komodo dragons have a major role to play in maintaining the ecological stability of their delicate island homes. If they disappear, so could many other species. And conservation is very much in tune with our survival. Animals and plants provide us with life-saving drugs and food, they pollinate crops and provide important ingredients or many industrial processes. Ironically, it is often not the big and beautiful creatures, but the ugly and less dramatic ones, that we need most.
Even so, the loss of a few species may seem irrelevant compared to major environmental problems such as global warming or the destruction of the ozone layer. But while nature has considerable resilience, there is a limit to how far that resilience can be stretched. No one knows how close to the limit we are getting. The darker it gets, the faster we're driving.
There is one last reason for caring, and I believe that no other is necessary. It is certainly the reason why so many people #Quote by Mark Carwardine
Drugs quotes by Ernst Junger
#84. In my experience, I have found that creativity demands a vigilant mind, which is weakened by the influence of drugs. #Quote by Ernst Junger
Drugs quotes by S.A. Tawks
#85. I figured, what harm could come from a little bit of fun? Crabs. The Canadian girl gave me crabs. #Quote by S.A. Tawks
Drugs quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#86. The brutal reality of politics would be probably intolerable without drugs. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Drugs quotes by Barbara Ehrenreich
#87. There seems to be no stopping drug frenzy once it takes hold of a nation. What starts with an innocuous HUGS, NOT DRUGS bumper sticker soon leads to wild talk of shooting dealers and making urine tests a condition for employment
anywhere. #Quote by Barbara Ehrenreich
Drugs quotes by Lester Bangs
#88. As far as a truly radical conscience, you have to take it as part of a larger thing, that it was sort of historical inevitability that with the coming of a leaguer society people would start to use drugs a lot more then they had before. #Quote by Lester Bangs
Drugs quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#89. People want to catch a buzz. That is why drugs are illegal, yet people still try to get their hands on them no matter what the consequence. Drugs make us happy, they may not be healthy. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Drugs quotes by Roy Blount, Jr.
#90. The last time somebody said, 'I find I can write much better with a word processor.', I replied, 'They used to say the same thing about drugs.'
Roy Blount Jr. #Quote by Roy Blount, Jr.
Drugs quotes by Daniel D. Palmer
#91. Drugs are delusive; they do not adjust anything. #Quote by Daniel D. Palmer
Drugs quotes by Jack Higgins
#92. International terrorism needs money to keep going," Villiers said. "A great deal of money, not only for arms, which are expensive, but to fund operations. Drugs are a ready source of that kind of money, #Quote by Jack Higgins
Drugs quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#93. It's only in drugs or death we'll see anything new, and death is just too controlling. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Drugs quotes by Daniel Pinchbeck
#94. I think a lot of people who were addicts are actually people who had that strong innate need to experience non-ordinary states of consciousness. But because our society has turned into this destructive culture of these horrible drugs that nullify you, they have that experience in a negative way. And then they lose that capacity forever, to have it in a positive way. #Quote by Daniel Pinchbeck
Drugs quotes by J.J. Cale
#95. If you've got bad news, you want to kick them blues, cocaine. #Quote by J.J. Cale
Drugs quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#96. With apologies to Austin Ruse and the National Review, it's passages like this, not any endorsement of the drug-fueled, last-minute allnighter, that explain why Hunter Thompson will always be celebrated by young people. It had nothing to do with drugs, the F word, or being cool, and everything to do with the fact that Thompson never lost his sense of appropriate outrage, never fell into the trap of accepting that moral compromise was somehow a sign of growth and adulthood. Both #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Drugs quotes by Robert Dunbar
#97. We've got to call 911," she said.
"Are you sure that's such a good idea?" he asked. "Our friends are dead. There's probably drugs all over the place. You look like an alien, and we're from out of town. Plus what are we going to report exactly? Think about it. We both know what we saw."
"It was a roach, right?"
"I guess," he nodded. "The size of an SUV. #Quote by Robert Dunbar
Drugs quotes by S.A. Tawks
#98. Don't get me wrong, she was an attractive girl, but the last thing she needed was to get mixed up with me. #Quote by S.A. Tawks
Drugs quotes by Richard Harris
#99. Many kids turn to selling drugs. It's not a good career choice, but they see it as a way to get money. #Quote by Richard Harris
Drugs quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#100. Sometimes Geraldine feels like she can drive forever. Maybe that's partially why she took a job at Milo General Motors. Driving is the best means of escape that the human race has, at least, that's her opinion. She's never had the guts to try drugs before, both because her sister was a junkie in the last few months she knew her, and because she's heard the overdose horror stories, seen 'Requiem for a Dream', smelled the vapours of a meth lab that Julia's boyfriend built, heard the crunching glass of crack vials and heroine needles when they happen to break. Even this alone is too surreal, not to mention that if she were high or tripping on acid or whatever the drug of choice may be, this would give the ghosts more power to morph into something even more nightmarish than they already are. #Quote by Rebecca McNutt
Drugs quotes by Bill Hader
#101. Growing up in Oklahoma, there wasn't much to do. Play sports, do a lot of drugs, or read and watch movies, which is what I did. #Quote by Bill Hader
Drugs quotes by L.L. Raand
#102. Tell your masters the Alpha of the Timberwolf Pack says these streets are mine. This city, this territory is mine. If you sell drugs to poison my wolves, I will come for you. If you threaten my Pack, I will come for you. If you break the laws of my Pack land, I will come for you. The challenge is issued. And I will not be as quick as I was with this cur. Now go. #Quote by L.L. Raand
Drugs quotes by Douglas Adams
#103. It all sounds rather naive and sentimental to be talking about children laughing and dancing and singing together when we all know perfectly well that what children do in real life is snarl and take drugs. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Drugs quotes by Chris Prentiss
#104. When people who believe themselves to be addicts or alcoholics come under great stress or trauma, they mentally give themselves permission to drink or use drugs as a remedy. #Quote by Chris Prentiss
Drugs quotes by John F. MacArthur Jr.
#105. Our nation now affirms, through its legislative bodies and courts, a distinctively anti-Christian agenda. Anything singularly Christian has been virtually swept away under the aegis of equal rights and moral freedom. The divine standards and biblical morality that our nation once embraced are assaulted constantly. Moral freedom now reigns. Materialism and the breakdown of the family are epidemic. Abortions, sexual evils, drugs, and crime are rampant. And our leaders are at a loss to know what to do because there are no standards left to provide controls for these problems. #Quote by John F. MacArthur Jr.
Drugs quotes by Daniel  Abbott
#106. Leaving's not an option when there's nowhere to go. #Quote by Daniel Abbott
Drugs quotes by Michael K. Simpson
#107. While I recognize the great value and importance of prescription drugs and strongly support a continued U.S. focus on pharmaceutical research and development, our nation's seniors cannot be asked to subsidize the drug costs of other wealthy industrialized nations any longer. #Quote by Michael K. Simpson
Drugs quotes by Timothy Leary
#108. The danger of psychedelic drugs, the danger of mind-opening, the danger of consciousness expansion, the danger of inner discovery is a danger to the establishment. #Quote by Timothy Leary
Drugs quotes by Kevin Panetta
#109. When people see things that are strange & creative & they're like "the creator must have been on drugs!" it's like "no. you are just boring #Quote by Kevin Panetta
Drugs quotes by Courtney Elizabeth Young
#110. The scariest thing about drugs is the brink of it all: when you're on the verge of insanity but you think your actions sane. And you can't stop. You just can't stop. #Quote by Courtney Elizabeth Young
Drugs quotes by Christian Wiman
#111. Poetry has its uses for despair. It can carve a shape in which a pain can seem to be; it can give one's loss a form and dimension so that it might be loss and not simply a hopeless haunting. It can do these things for one person, or it can do them for an entire culture. But poetry is for psychological, spiritual, or emotional pain. For physical pain it is, like everything but drugs, useless. #Quote by Christian Wiman
Drugs quotes by Henry Louis Gates
#112. Everybody wants to have sex - you don't have to have a baby when you're 16. You don't have to do drugs. I think our Sunday schools should be turned into Black history schools and computer schools on the weekend, just like Hebrew schools for Jewish people, or my Asian friends who send their kids to schools on the weekend to learn Chinese or Korean. #Quote by Henry Louis Gates
Drugs quotes by C. Everett Koop
#113. Drugs don't work in patients who don't take them. #Quote by C. Everett Koop
Drugs quotes by Kurt Cobain
#114. Drugs are bad for you. They will fuck you up. #Quote by Kurt Cobain
Drugs quotes by Katie Heaney
#115. That day, watching that episode with Rylee, I said to her, "That is what I need. Drugs." And, much to my surprise, she responded, "Oh, well I have some right here." Apparently, her then-boyfriend had asked to leave a little unopened vial of pot behind with her after visiting one weekend, because he was taking an airplane back home and couldn't fly with it. For five minutes I chastised her for temporarily allowing illicit substances in our home, sullying our apartment's good name. But then she said to me, "I think what we need to do, for you to feel better, is to get high and play Dream Phone." And there wasn't really much to think about, right then. I told her, "That is a really good idea. #Quote by Katie Heaney
Drugs quotes by Jane Kenyon
#116. We try a new drug, a new combination
of drugs, and suddenly
I fall into my life again

like a vole picked up by a storm
then dropped three valleys
and two mountains away from home.

I can find my way back. I know
I will recognize the store
where I used to buy milk and gas.

I remember the house and barn,
the rake, the blue cups and plates,
the Russian novels I loved so much,

and the black silk nightgown
that he once thrust
into the toe of my Christmas stocking. #Quote by Jane Kenyon
Drugs quotes by Kofi Annan
#117. Drugs have destroyed many lives, but wrongheaded governmental policies have destroyed many more. I think it's obvious that after 40 years of war on drugs, it has not worked. There should be decriminalization of drugs. #Quote by Kofi Annan
Drugs quotes by Anthony Ryan
#118. There were times when I consider simply taking the dagger and sinking it into his heart, I had ample opportunity after all, but I was still young and tough my hatred consumed me, I still lusted for life. I was a coward, a prisoner whose captivity was made worse by the knowledge of the vastness of his prison. Despair began to rot my heart. I fell to indulgence again, seeking escape in wine and drugs and flesh, an indulgence that would have seem me dead before long, had not the foreigners arrived. #Quote by Anthony Ryan
Drugs quotes by Jerry Garcia
#119. The real problems are cultural. The problems of the people who take drugs as a cultural trap - I think there's a real problem there, the crack stuff, the hopelessness of the junkie. The urban angst. #Quote by Jerry Garcia
Drugs quotes by Nikki Sixx
#120. Selling my soul would be a lot easier if I could just find it. #Quote by Nikki Sixx
Drugs quotes by Bill Bruford
#121. I don't really remember a whole lot of sex, drugs and rock n' roll, really. #Quote by Bill Bruford
Drugs quotes by Joan Osborne
#122. We've been together so long, I hope it just wasn't the drugs. #Quote by Joan Osborne
Drugs quotes by Herman Koch
#123. We shouldn't want to force anyone to read, just as little as we should want to force people to go to the movies, listen to music, have sex, or consume alcoholic beverages. Literature doesn't belong in a secondary school. No, it belongs more on the list of things I just mentioned. The list that includes sex and drugs, all the things that give us pleasure without any external coercion. A required reading list? How dare we! #Quote by Herman Koch
Drugs quotes by Terence McKenna
#124. I'm as against restricting access to drugs as I am to burning books. It offends me in the same way. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Drugs quotes by David Sedaris
#125. My mother was, for the most part, delighted with my brother and regarded him with the bemused curiosity of a brood hen discovering she has hatched a completely different species. 'I think it was very nice of Paul to give me this vase,' she once said, arranging a bouquet of wildflowers into the skull-shaped bong my brother had left on the kitchen table. 'It's nontraditional, but that's the Rooster's way. He's a free spirit, and we're lucky to have him. #Quote by David Sedaris
Drugs quotes by Fran Lebowitz
#126. I stopped taking drugs when I was 19, and who wants to drive a cab around New York with drugs in their car? #Quote by Fran Lebowitz
Drugs quotes by Courteney Cox
#127. I would not be good with someone who did drugs. As long as I know something, I can deal with anything. I'm really good. But what I'm not good with is inconsistency. And I'm not good with not knowing. #Quote by Courteney Cox
Drugs quotes by Augusten Burroughs
#128. We never sampled our drugs because we were afraid of them, but to admit it aloud would have broken the spell. #Quote by Augusten Burroughs
Drugs quotes by Carre Otis
#129. I am not naturally that thin, so I had to go through everything from using drugs to diet pills to laxatives to fasting. Those were my main ways of controlling my weight. #Quote by Carre Otis
Drugs quotes by E. Lockhart
#130. We believe in outdoor exercise. We believe that time heals. We believe, although we will not say so explicitly, in prescription drugs and the cocktail hour. #Quote by E. Lockhart
Drugs quotes by William F. Buckley, Jr.
#131. Those who suffer from the abuse of drugs have themselves to blame for it. This does not mean that society is absolved from active concern for their plight. It does mean that their plight is subordinate to the plight of those citizens who do not experiment with drugs but whose life, liberty, and property are substantially affected by the illegalization of the drugs sought after by the minority. #Quote by William F. Buckley, Jr.
Drugs quotes by Josh Kilmer-Purcell
#132. My arm reaches up. I don't know if I'm reaching for the pipe or for him. I want to touch his skin. I want to breathe in what he breathes. The yellow swirl. I want to be the yellow swirl. I want him to breathe me in, be sent riding on oxygen molecules deep into lungs. I want to travel through his body, seeing what makes him happy, attaching myself to whatever place in him sparks to life on my arrival. His blood. His tissues. His muscles. I want to burrow inside the folds like a wind-blown dusting of snow so that each time I melt away, he seeks me out again. There's no delineation between the pipe and the smoke and his body. It's all whole, I want in. I want him.
'Please,' I say softly, 'let me try.'
Without letting go of the pipe, he swings his hand holding the lighter with incredible force, backhanding my face. My jaw pops. The lighter swings back under the pipe undulating back and forth, inhaling the curl as it rises from the tar, exactly the same as before he hit me, only now he's staring at me, hating me. #Quote by Josh Kilmer-Purcell
Drugs quotes by Tommy Lasorda
#133. I'm sick and tired of people saying that taking drugs is a sickness. When you put something of your own free will in your own body knowing that it's harmful against the body, it's against the law and all it will do is lead you down the path of destruction, that is a weakness. #Quote by Tommy Lasorda
Drugs quotes by Bill Hicks
#134. I believe that God left certain drugs growing naturally upon our planet to help speed up and facilitate our evolution. #Quote by Bill Hicks
Drugs quotes by Boy George
#135. I think drugs played a big role in the Taboo scene. People were taking copious amounts of ecstasy, which had filtered over from New York, and at a certain point you were more likely to spend most of the night in the toilets at the club. #Quote by Boy George
Drugs quotes by Newt Gingrich
#136. If you import a commercial quantity of illegal drugs ... it is because you have made the personal decision that you are prepared to get rich by destroying our children. I have made the decision that I love our children enough that we will kill you if you do this. #Quote by Newt Gingrich
Drugs quotes by Michelle Tea
#137. I have had the occasion of coming into money and spending some recklessly, like on a purse. At this point, shopping and the spending of money on things like Botox gives me the rush I used to get copping drugs on the street. Or, making other people cop drugs for me on the street. I didn't like to do that. I wanted to protect my reputation. #Quote by Michelle Tea
Drugs quotes by Awdhesh Singh
#138. If you don't fix the problems of your past and future, you may lose the joy of the present. You may become susceptible to falling for alcohol, drugs or other forms of intoxicants to calm your mind and to be able to live in the present. #Quote by Awdhesh Singh
Drugs quotes by David Mitchell
#139. But love's not just the drug; it's also the dealer. Love wants love in return, am I right, Olly? Like drugs, the highs look divine, and I envy the users. But when the side effects kick in - jealousy, the rages, grief, I think, Count me out. Elizabethans equated romantic love with insanity. Buddhists view it as a brat throwing a tantrum at the picnic of the calm mind. #Quote by David Mitchell
Drugs quotes by Patrick Soon-Shiong
#140. You'd believe that a patient with hypertension, if you know you have hypertension or diabetes, you would take your drug every day. The compliance rate is more like 30% or 40%. Which means that 60% of patients don't take their drugs, and they actually go into these crises, end up in the hospital. #Quote by Patrick Soon-Shiong
Drugs quotes by Dan Rather
#141. By more than two to one Americans do not consider what Kevorkian did, injecting a terminally ill patient with legal drugs at the patient's request, to be the same as murder. You may want to note that laws are not supposed to be enforced on the basis of public opinion polls. #Quote by Dan Rather
Drugs quotes by Craig Finn
#142. I guess the drinking and the drugs are interesting to me because the way we use them and our society uses them, we kind of manufacture highs and lows. #Quote by Craig Finn
Drugs quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#143. I hope they change my drugs soon. Whatever I'm on isn't working. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Drugs quotes by Madonna Ciccone
#144. I'm not interested in being Wonder Woman in the delivery room. Give me drugs. #Quote by Madonna Ciccone
Drugs quotes by J.S.B. Morse
#145. There is more mental health cure found in a pile of dirt than in all the behavioral therapy and drugs in modern medical science. #Quote by J.S.B. Morse
Drugs quotes by Aldous Huxley
#146. Work, the gospel of work, the sanctity of work, laborare est orare - all that tripe and nonsense. 'Work!' he once broke out contemptuously against the reasonable expostulations of Philip Quarles, 'work is no more respectable than alcohol, and it serves exactly the same purpose: it just distracts the mind, makes a man forget himself. Work's simply a drug, that's all. It's humiliating that men shouldn't be able to live without drugs, soberly; it's humiliating that they shouldn't have the courage to see the world and themselves as they really are. They must intoxicate themselves with work. It's stupid. The gospel of work's just a gospel of stupidity and funk. Work may be prayer; but it's also hiding one's head in the sand, it's also making such a din and a dust that a man can't hear himself speak or see his own hand before his face. It's hiding yourself from yourself. No wonder the Samuel Smileses and the big business men are such enthusiasts for work. Work gives them the comforting illusion of existing, even of being important. If they stopped working, they'd realize that they simply weren't there at all, most of them. Just holes in the air, that's all. Holes with perhaps a rather nasty smell in them. Most Smilesian souls must smell rather nasty, I should think. No wonder they daren't stop working. They might find out what they really are, or rather aren't. It's a risk they haven't the courage to take. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Drugs quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#147. There are three major social issues that this country is struggling with: education, poverty, and drugs. Two of them we talk about, and one of them we don't. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Drugs quotes by Jerry Garcia
#148. We were very fortunate to have a a little time in history when LSD was still legal and were able to experiment with drugs just like we were doing with music. #Quote by Jerry Garcia
Drugs quotes by J.D. Robb
#149. It's a fucking pharmaceutical conspiracy, Eve. We've wiped out just about every known plague, disease, and infection. Oh, we come up with a new one every now and again, to give the researchers something to do. But none of these bright-eyed medical types, none of the medi-computers can figure out how to cure the common fucking cold. You know why?"
Even couldn't stop the smile. She waited patiently until Mavis finished another bout of explosive sneezing. "Why?"
"Because the pharmaceutical companies need to sell drugs. You know what a damn sinus tab costs? You can get anticancer injections cheaper. I swear it. #Quote by J.D. Robb
Drugs quotes by Dennis Hopper
#150. The alcohol was awful. I was a terrible alcoholic. I mean, people used to ask how much drugs I did. I said, 'I only do drugs so I can drink more'. I was doing the coke so I could drink more. I mean, I don't know any other reason. I'd start drinking in the morning. I'd drink all day long. #Quote by Dennis Hopper
Drugs quotes by Slaine
#151. I believe that the most dangerous drugs that there are right now are the drugs that are legal - Over-the-counter medication. I think the entire healthcare system promotes the use of these drugs. #Quote by Slaine
Drugs quotes by Terence McKenna
#152. The terror of drugs is a terror of giving up control. This is what people are most alarmed about by psychedelics, is the giving up control. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Drugs quotes by Jonah Berger
#153. In fact, the messages actually seemed to increase drug use. Kids aged twelve and a half to eighteen who saw the ads were actually more likely to smoke marijuana. Why? Because it made drug use more public. Think about observability and social proof. Before seeing the message, some kids might never have thought about taking drugs. Others might have considered it but have been wary about doing the wrong thing. But anti-drug ads often say two things simultaneously. They say that drugs are bad, but they also say that other people are doing them. And as we've discussed throughout this chapter, the more others seem to be doing something, the more likely people are to think that thing is right or normal and what they should be doing as well. #Quote by Jonah Berger
Drugs quotes by Irwin Stone
#154. All patients reported a loss of craving for drugs while taking large doses of Vitamin C, during detoxification. Of the first 30 carefully monitored heroin addicts, 30 successfully withdrew from their addiction with no more than minor discomfort. None of the 30 were reported to have relapsed ... Similar results have been reported by other doctors ... :Archie Kalokerinos ... #Quote by Irwin Stone
Drugs quotes by Jeffrey Sachs
#155. Every morning our newspapers could read, 'More than 20,000 people perished yesterday of extreme poverty.' How? The poor die in hospital wards that lack drugs, in villages that lack antimalarial bed nets, in houses that lack safe drinking water. They die namelessly, without public comment. Sadly, sad stories rarely get written. #Quote by Jeffrey Sachs
Drugs quotes by Martina Hingis
#156. I find this accusation so horrendous, so monstrous, that I have decided to confront it head-on by talking to the press. I am frustrated and angry. I believe that I am absolutely, 100 per cent innocent. I assure you: I have never taken drugs. #Quote by Martina Hingis
Drugs quotes by Rosanne Cash
#157. I'm not the type to turn to drugs and alcohol, but I do have a profound devotion to art and music - and children. #Quote by Rosanne Cash
Drugs quotes by Jerry Garcia
#158. I think it's too bad that everybody's decided to turn on drugs, I don't think drugs are the problem. Crime is the problem. Cops are the problem. Money's the problem. But drugs are just drugs. #Quote by Jerry Garcia
Drugs quotes by Anne Lamott
#159. Domestic pain can be searing, and it is usually what does us in. It's almost indigestible: death, divorce, old age, drugs; brain-damaged children, violence, senility, unfaithfulness. Good luck with figuring it out. It unfolds, and you experience it, and it is so horrible and endless that you could almost give up a dozen times. But grace can be the experience of a second wind, when even though what you want is clarity and resolution, what you get is stamina and poignancy and the strength to hang on. Through the most ordinary things, books, for instance, or a postcard, or eyes or hands, life is transformed. Hands that for decades reached out to hurt us, to drag us down, to control us, or to wave us away in dismissal now reach for us differently. They become instruments of tenderness, buoyancy, exploration, hope. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Drugs quotes by Charli XCX
#160. [My mom] worries about me going and taking drugs, whereas my dad advises me on what drugs to take and what ones not to take. So, they're very different. #Quote by Charli XCX
Drugs quotes by Rick James
#161. You can't have rock and roll without drugs, you can't have rock and roll without sex. #Quote by Rick James
Drugs quotes by William Shakespeare

Drugs quotes by Randy Newman
#163. The radio is blastin', someone's knockin' at the door. I'm lookin' at my girlfriend, she's passed out on the floor. #Quote by Randy Newman
Drugs quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#164. And my car back then, a Studebaker as I recall, was powered, as are most of all means of transportation and other machinery today, and electric power plants and furnaces, by the most abused, addictive, and destructive drugs of all: fossil fuels.
When you got here, even when I got here, the industrialized world was already hopelessly hooked on fossil fuels, and very soon now there won't be any left. Cold turkey.
Can I tell you the truth? I mean this isn't the TV news is it? Here's what I think the truth is: We are all addicts of fossil fuels in a state of denial. And like so many addicts about to face cold turkey, our leaders are now committing violent crimes to get what little is left of what we're hooked on. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Drugs quotes by Alyson Hannigan
#165. I can't stand when people use drugs as an escape. It's like, everybody suffers. Deal with your issues, you'll feel so much better. #Quote by Alyson Hannigan
Drugs quotes by David Foster Wallace
#166. Gately can't even imagine what it would be like to be a sober and drug-free biker. It's like what would be the point. He imagines these people polishing the hell out of their leather and like playing a lot of really precise pool. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Drugs quotes by Martin H. Fischer
#167. Half of the modern drugs could well be thrown out of the window, except that the birds might eat them. #Quote by Martin H. Fischer
Drugs quotes by Harry Browne
#168. I found that I was getting a warm reception for my message of freeing you from the income tax, releasing you from Social Security, ending the insane war on drugs, restoring gun rights, and reducing the federal government to just its constitutional functions. #Quote by Harry Browne
Drugs quotes by J. D. Hayworth
#169. And if you like socialized medicine, you will love this government bureaucracy under [then-Vice President and Democratic presidential nominee] Al Gore that will actually cost seniors who get $500 a year in prescription drugs right now - it will end up costing seniors more money and take away control from those seniors. #Quote by J. D. Hayworth
Drugs quotes by Keira Knightley
#170. I've always gravitated towards people who are extreme. Whether its drugs, or kicking down doors. Normally, the people in my life had to escape to get back. #Quote by Keira Knightley
Drugs quotes by Enrique Pena Nieto
#171. My government will continue mounting a real fight against the trafficking of marijuana and all other drugs. #Quote by Enrique Pena Nieto
Drugs quotes by Trey Anastasio
#172. My life was a complete catatrophe. I was very, very sick from drugs and alcohol. #Quote by Trey Anastasio
Drugs quotes by Andrew Wommack
#173. Individual sins (committing a homosexual act, doing drugs, getting drunk, etc.) aren't what send you to hell. Your sins have been forgiven, but the sin that'll send you to hell is not accepting the payment for those sins. Everything revolves around how you respond to Jesus. #Quote by Andrew Wommack
Drugs quotes by William Pryor
#174. The historical truth is a fiction. OK, I did whatever I could to find out what happened from
surviving friends, family and media, but that is simply a skeleton upon which the story is draped.
This is the unmasking of the myth, and, as Jean Cocteau put it: "Man seeks to escape himself
in myth, and does so by any means at his disposal. Drugs, alcohol, or lies. Unable to withdraw
into himself, he disguises himself. Lies and inaccuracy give him a few moments of comfort."
I wanted to go beyond a recreation of the past to discover meaning in the degradation of my
addiction experience. The past is another country and not my prime interest. It's more what
the past can tell us about how we deal with the present moment.
- William Pryor #Quote by William Pryor
Drugs quotes by Robert Trout
#175. Confucianism strongly condemned the use of drugs like opium. #Quote by Robert Trout
Drugs quotes by Iain Banks
#176. Peddle one of the least harmful drugs humanity's ever discovered, and you get twenty years. Peddle something that kills a hundred thousand a year... and you get a knighthood. #Quote by Iain Banks
Drugs quotes by Geoff Dyer
#177. In the cramped confines of the toilet I had trouble getting out of my wet trousers, which clung to my legs like a drowning man. The new ones were quite complicated too in that they had more legs than a spider; either that or they didn't have enough legs to get mine into. The numbers failed to add up. Always there was one trouser leg too many or one of my legs was left over. From the outside it may have looked like a simple toilet, but once you were locked in here the most basic rules of arithmetic no longer held true. #Quote by Geoff Dyer
Drugs quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#178. She thought she was getting out of the Water Rising clean, because she didn't see her father anywhere around: there was only Ash and Lillian sitting at a table, and a few other patrons at as much of a distance from Ash and Lillian as they could get. She made for the door, at which point Lillian caught her arm.

"Where are you going?"

"Uh," said Kami, eyeballing her wildly. "I'm going to buy some drugs."

Lillian stared. "I beg your pardon?"

"This is a really stressful time for everyone," said Kami. "So I thought maybe I could buy a little weed, take the edge off. I might be a while. This is a very clean-living town, apart from all the murders, so I don't actually know any drug dealers. I realize Jared kind of looks like one, but he's not, which is a shame because I think the drug dealer's girlfriend gets her drugs free."

"I realize you are attempting to be humorous," said Lillian, after a pause during which she stared some more. "I don't understand it."

"Hey, you're not the only family with a legacy. 'Glass' rhymes with 'sass.' Have you met my dad?"

"I have had that dubious pleasure," said Lillian. "He is, in fact, meant to be meeting me in order to, and I quote, 'teach me to integrate better with society, display leadership skills, win over the populace, and stop acting like a robot princess from space.' I admit that the humor in his humor escapes me as well." She paused and suddenly looked determined #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
Drugs quotes by Malcolm X
#179. Every addict takes junk to escape something, the Muslim explains. He explains that most black junkies really are trying to narcotize themselves against being a black man in the white man's America. But, actually, the Muslim says, the black man taking dope is only helping the white man to "prove" that the black man is nothing. #Quote by Malcolm X
Drugs quotes by James Frey
#180. The afternoon and the early evening slide by in a lidded daze where the ability to think in any identifiable way disappears and where every moment seems to be an eternity. #Quote by James Frey
Drugs quotes by Michael Shermer
#181. Neuroscientist David Comings drew out the larger implications of such hallucinations for the relationship between our rational and spiritual brains:
The psychedelic drugs like DMT often produce a sensation of "contact," of being in the presence of and interaction with a non-human being. Highly intelligent and sophisticated test subjects who knew these feelings were drug-induced nevertheless insisted the contact had really happened. The temporal lobe-limbic system's emotional tape recorder sometimes cannot distinguish between externally generated real events and internally generated non-real experience thus providing a system in which the rational brain and the spiritual brain are not necessarily in conflict. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Drugs quotes by Peter Gelderloos
#182. At first glance, a militant conception of revolution seems more impractical than a nonviolent conception, but this is because it is realistic. People need to understand that capitalism, the state, white supremacy, imperialism, and patriarchy all constitute a war against the people of this planet. And revolution is an intensification of that war. We cannot liberate ourselves and create the worlds we want to live in if we think of fundamental social change as shining a light in the darkness, winning hearts and minds, speaking truth to power, bearing witness, capturing people's attention, or any other passive parade. Millions of people die every year on this planet for no better reason than a lack of clean drinking water. Because the governments and corporations that have usurped control of the commons have not found a way to profit from those people's lives, they let them die. Millions of people die every year because a few corporations and their allied governments do not want to allow the production of generic AIDS drugs and other medicine. Do you think the institutions and the elite individuals who hold the power of life or death over millions give a fuck about our protests? They have declared war on us, and we need to take it back to them. Not because we are angry (though we should be), not to get revenge, and not because we are acting impulsively, but because we have weighed the possibility of freedom against the certainty of shame from living under whatever form of dominat #Quote by Peter Gelderloos
Drugs quotes by Terence McKenna
#183. There is no question that a society that sets out to control its citizens' use of drugs sets out on the slippery path to totalitarianism. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Drugs quotes by Pope Francis
#184. How many young people, how many young people of our Europe, whom we have left empty of ideals, who do not have work ... they take drugs, alcohol, or go there to enlist in fundamentalist groups. #Quote by Pope Francis
Drugs quotes by Oliver Markus
#185. Media censorship is a prohibition of words and pictures. The war on drugs is a complete failure, and so is the American war on words. When you forbid a word, you give it power. Self-proclaimed rebels will use words like shit or fuck, simply to shock and sound cool. #Quote by Oliver Markus
Drugs quotes by Ina May Gaskin
#186. The problem is that doctors today often assume that something mysterious and unidentified has gone wrong with labor or that the woman's body is somehow "inadequate" - what I call the "woman's body as a lemon" assumption. For a variety of reasons, a lot of women have also come to believe that nature made a serious mistake with their bodies. This belief has become so strong in many that they give in to pharmaceutical or surgical treatments when patience and recognition of the normality and harmlessness of the situation would make for better health for them and their babies and less surgery and technological intervention in birth. Most women need encouragement and companionship more than they need drugs. #Quote by Ina May Gaskin
Drugs quotes by Dina Kucera
#187. The decision-making part of the brain of an individual who has been using crystal meth is very interesting. When Carly and Andy were in their apartment, they ran out of drugs. They sold every single thing they had except two things: a couch and a blow torch. They had to make a decision because something had to be sold to buy more drugs. A normal person would automatically think, Sell the blow torch. But Andy and Carly sat on the couch, looking at the couch and looking at the blow torch, and the choice brought intense confusion. The couch? The blow torch? I mean, we may not need the blow torch today, but what about tomorrow? If we sell the couch, we can still sit wherever we want. But the blow torch? A blow torch is a very specific item. If you're doing a project and you need a blow torch, you can't substitute something else for it. You would have to have a blow torch, right? In the end, they sold the couch. #Quote by Dina Kucera
Drugs quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#188. What happens to the faith healer and the shaman when any poor citizen can see the full effect of drugs or surgeries, administered without ceremonies or mystifications? Roughly the same thing as happens to the rainmaker when the climatologist turns up, or to the diviner from the heavens when schoolteachers get hold of elementary telescopes. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Drugs quotes by George H. W. Bush
#189. Not all Americans are living the American dream by a long shot. Many can't even imagine it. There are impoverished Americans, the poor and the homeless, the hungry and the hopeless, many unable to read and write. There are Americans gone astray, the kids dragged down by drugs, the shattered families, the teenage mothers struggling to cope. Then there are Americans uneasy, troubled and bewildered by the dizzying pace of change. #Quote by George H. W. Bush
Drugs quotes by Randy Newman
#190. Stay away from drugs. They're not worth it. I've tried, but there's none of them that's worth it. #Quote by Randy Newman
Drugs quotes by David Gill
#191. Previously people were treated anonymously particular on a drugs situation which is obviously highly emotive. They have been treated anonymously even after the verdict had been reached. #Quote by David Gill
Drugs quotes by Elton John
#192. It'll take you a couple of vodka and tonics to set you on your feet again. #Quote by Elton John
Drugs quotes by Surprise Sithole
#193. Let me tell you something: Never give up. God can soften the hardest heart. If you have been praying for a loved one for twenty years, do not stop! God will save people from sin; He will deliver them from bondage to drugs or alcohol. His love can melt a heart of stone - so, again, never give up! #Quote by Surprise Sithole
Drugs quotes by Nikki Sixx
#194. I'm finding that people reading the book [ The Heroin Diaries: A Year In The Life Of A Shattered Rock Star] are saying, "You came from one background, I came from this background - you were a rock star, I was a CEO. I didn't have a heroin/coke problem, but I had a pill problem. But I also fell from grace, didn't know how to get recovery, and I am now in recovery." People tell me that their kids read it and told them they'll never do drugs - "This book really shows me where it goes." #Quote by Nikki Sixx
Drugs quotes by James Toback
#195. [Robert Downey was being singled out for] selective prosecution. He's a sweet guy who never did harm to anyone except himself. He's been doing drugs for 20 years and functioning for 20 years, and in those 20 years there've been hundreds of people who've been getting high constantly and behaved very destructively and have not been arrested. Robert's real problem is he gets caught. #Quote by James Toback
Drugs quotes by Peter Breggin
#196. Advocates of psychiatric drugs often claim that the medications improve learning and the ability to benefit from psychotherapy, but the contrary is true. There are no drugs that improve mental function, self-understanding, or human relations. Any drug that affects mental processes does so by impairing them. #Quote by Peter Breggin
Drugs quotes by Bill Hicks
#197. Here is my final point ... About drugs, about alcohol, about pornography ... What business is it of yours what I do, read, buy, see, or take into my body as long as I do not harm another human being on this planet? And for those who are having a little moral dilemma in your head about how to answer that question, I'll answer it for you. NONE of your fucking business. Take that to the bank, cash it, and go fucking on a vacation out of my life. #Quote by Bill Hicks
Drugs quotes by Ross Lennon
#198. It's a cold summer morning with the dawn chorus in full swing. The sun is beginning to rise above still-sleepy London town. People stir in their beds, hoping that it is not yet time to get up, wishing for a few more minutes of peace. They cling onto loved ones, feel their warmth and try to settle back to sleep whilst alarm clocks limber up, getting ready to play their tunes. #Quote by Ross Lennon
Drugs quotes by Tommy Chong
#199. Look at all the drug busts all over the country. There must be an audience there somewhere. My feeling is that if we're losing the war on drugs, let's do a movie for the enemy. #Quote by Tommy Chong
Drugs quotes by Kit Rocha
#200. Despair was no different than drugs or booze or gambling - it could become a habit, just as easily as anything else. #Quote by Kit Rocha
