Category Archives: PILLS

I realized I could really become hooked on these happy pills.

 They gave me a glorious feeling of general well-being and didn’t make me fat, like alcohol. I wondered if there was any harm in being addicted to only these.”

― Augusten Burroughs, Magical Thinking: True Stories

“Drip of a drop,
Don’t name it a tear,
It’s hard to cry with tears,
harder without,
To smother a sob without a sound,
to bite your forefinger in helplessness,
and cry out

Hey! Where’s the pill
I can take to cure this?
What’s the doctor’s name?
What operation can save me?”

― Piri Thomas

I’ve led most of my life like a typical sixties brat. You know, drugs, sex, and rock ‘n’ roll.”

 ― Gary Goldstick, Saving the Karamazovs

I will lift up mine eyes unto the pills. Almost everyone takes them, from the humble aspirin to the multi-coloured, king-sized three deckers, which put you to sleep, wake you up, stimulate and soothe you all in one. It is an age of pills.
