Description

"My head expanded wider and wider, revolving with inconceivable rapidity, and enlarging in space with every revolution. It filled the room - the house - the city; it became a world, peopled with the shapes of men and monsters. I spun away into its great vortex, and wandered about its expanses as about a universe. I lost all perception of time and space, and knew no distinction between the realities around me, and the phantasmata which sprung in endless succession from my brain."- 'The Hasheesh Eater.'

Substance Abuse Six Pack 2 brings together six addiction classics:

The Hasheesh Eater by Fitz Hugh Ludlow
A History of Champagne by Henry Vizetelly
The Truth about Opium by William H. Brereton
The Betrothed by Rudyard Kipling
An Ode of Thanks for Certain Cigars by James Russell Lowell
The Soul of Wine by Charles Baudelaire

"It is time to get drunk! So as not to be the martyred slaves of Time, get drunk; get drunk without stopping! On wine, on poetry, or on virtue, as you wish."

- Charles Baudelaire
