    I Have Smoked Opium Twice

    What I recall that was me and another friend had happened on a chance to split a small amount, for fifty dollars and we both tried it. Despite this being the drug crazed late 60s and early 70s , opium was not that much around. I can say I never was ever that mellow again in my...

    Styleease

    For all of you that are college students, I would suggest purchasing Style Ease. It formats your papers in APA style. Some of you might say well it is best if you up and just learn how to write APA style. I say if your in school you need all the shortcuts you can get.

    Black Tar

      Opium wasn't readily available where I lived as a teen in the 70's, but from time to time we were lucky enough to find some . Mostly it was brought back by Vietnam veterans, older brothers of my friends. It promotes a very dream like state which was quite...

    Opium

    Just the mere thought of smoking opium sets my mind adrift on a sea of pleasure. The slow burn...the incense like smell...the luxurious high. It has been close to ten years since I last smoked opium. I miss it. The smoke is so light and delightful. I miss spiking my clove...

    I Have Been To An Opium Den

     Back in the late 60s, when I was living in San Francisco, I went to a poetry reading in North Beach. It ended late at night. I was with some hippy palls and several older "beatniks."  One of these older beatnik guys, I'll call him Brent, told us he could take us to an...

    Marbles In My Head

    I'm drug free now but in my time i've tried lots of organic based "drugs." I had the opportunity to try opium and said what the hell. it's not something you come across that often. It was alot like a marijuana high only it felt "heavier." I didnt space out like the chinamen in...

    A Heavenly Floral Aroma

    Not a big fan of smoking opium itself, although I do love having the dried pods on hand to make a bitter natural medicinal tea. It soothes my occasional aches and anxieties exceptionally well - and it uplifts me more than smoking does. But what I really do love is the smell in a...
