"If there was a government that was interested in corrupting its citizens, it would only have to encourage the use of hashish ... hashish belongs to the class of solitary joy, it is for the miserable idler ... You are incapable of work and lack energy for action .. You throw your personality to the four winds of heaven and now you are unable to reassemble and concentrate them ... Hashish is a weapon for suicide".
"Balzac thought, without doubt, that there was no bigger shame nor suffering in life for man than the abdication of his will. I saw him one time at a meeting where there was a question on the prodigious effects of hashish. He listened and questioned with an amusing attention and vivacity ... The way of thinking shocked him greatly, inspite of himself. He was presented with dawamesk, he examined it, smelled it and returned it without touching it. The struggle between his almost childish curiosity and his repugnance at the abdication betrayed itself on his expressive face in a striking manner. The love of dignity prevailed."
Most drugs are stored in the body fats for years. During an exertion, a walk, sport, fear, surprise, stimulation, a bit of fat is burnt and very small quantities of drugs are released into the blood circulation. This will reactivate the effects of the drugs, making the user feel that they want more.

Yes, Alcohol is a sedative drug. In drinking regularly a large amount of alcohol, one becomes an alcoholic within a few years. Alcohol is characteristically able to potentialize the effect of all other drugs it is mixed with. If one mixes alcohol with another or others drugs, one can very rapidly become a drug-addict.
When you consume alcohol and cannabis simultaneously, these products mutually increase their effects. The current practice is to use alcohol and cannabis at the same time. Many young people nowadays use this common method to try to get “stoned”.
A drug-addict is someone who takes drugs in order to solve problems created by taking drugs. S/he thinks that s/he can stop taking them whenever s/he wants, however, in spite of the harmful consequences caused by consuming drugs, s/he cannot. If the drug-addict experiences withdrawal symptoms he will think only about providing himself with drugs even if it means acting against his morals. The demand is so strong that anything linked with will, effort, love or morals gradually disappears completely. Lies, violence, aggressiveness, moral or physical suffering, self-harm, being afraid to take part in everyday life become the norm. Because of these evil acts, the drug-addict looses his/her self-esteem and goes deeper into loneliness and suicidal urges.
