"He was pointing at the moon, but I was looking at his hand."
Your lips are a cigarette and I want to get addicted
take a puff of your love and smoke out your name
as it burns my throat and seduces my lungs
getting drunk off your scent
and high of your smile.
Last night I kissed you and
now I want more
a cigarette or two
or even the whole pack.
I am an addict and a fool
And I don't even smoke.
We live on the cusp of death thinking that it won't be us
If I can be an example of gettin' sober, then I can be an example of startin' over.
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.

Addiction is a tunnel that wakes you up in the middle of the night.
Everything else happens out here in the light.

One hot afternoon during the era in which you’ve gotten yourself ridiculously tangled up with heroin you will be riding the bus and thinking what a worthless piece of crap you are when a little girl will get on the bus holding...two purple balloons. She’ll offer you one of the balloons, but you won’t take it because you believe you no longer have a right to such tiny beautiful things. You’re wrong. You do.

Cocaine habit-forming? Of course not. I ought to know. I've been using it for years.
To many, total abstinence is easier than perfect moderation.
The rush of battle is often a potent and lethal addiction, for war is a drug.
