Ayahuasca: Bad Medicine

by Naren Duffy, Customer Services, London, UK

I recently watched a short presentation given by the author Graham Hancock, relating his experiences with the hallucinogenic drink ‘ayahuasca’, and how he used it to stop smoking marijuana, among other things. Ayahuasca is a drink used in shamanistic rituals originating in the Amazon jungle, and it is used sometimes in the West for treating drug addiction as well as emotional difficulties, or by people who are interested in exploring exotic traditions from around the world.

Ayahuasca can be brewed using several different plants, but of the plants used, one will contain DMT (dimethytriptamine) and another an MAO (monoamine oxidase) inhibitor. MAO is a chemical that is present in our liver which serves to break down toxins so that they will be rendered inactive and not end up in the blood stream. DMT occurs in small amounts naturally in our bodies and is linked to dreaming and other functions, but when it is ingested it is naturally broken down by MAO. Therefore an inhibitor is necessary to make DMT have any effect when it is drunk. DMT can also be extracted from a plant and the extract smoked directly into the lungs to produce an extremely intense hallucinogenic experience which lasts a couple of minutes, while the ayahuasca experience can be equally intense and last around four hours, possibly longer.

I took ayahuasca twice in my life and smoked extracted DMT once, and would have considered these to have been quite positive experiences at the time. I took LSD and psilocybin mushrooms on many occasions, and I was a bit of a champion for the use of these substances during that period of my life. I had had varying experiences with psychedelics and hallucinogenics, from the ecstatically blissful to the terrifyingly horrible, and bought into many of the claims that people (including Mr. Hancock) have made, that the way forward in humanity’s evolution is by using mind-expanding substances with the intention to evolve our consciousness and reclaim our destiny as the divine beings that we are.

It is pretty obvious that at this point in our history we are having to deal with a near perfect storm of difficulties on the planet we live on. From health epidemics, to wars, to general society breaking down in ways that we have not experienced in recent memory, humanity is struggling. Understandably, we are looking for ways to fix things and fix ourselves, whether that is through religion, money, technology, good causes, or so-called ancient practices which promise at least to make everything more manageable, and at most to change the world for the better. The problem is that, whatever we choose to heal the situation we find ourselves in, cannot come from the same place that caused the problem in the first place, otherwise we just end up with a different flavour of the same issue further down the line, as history can attest. What is needed is a change in consciousness, this is true, but it is very important to be clear on what consciousness we want to change to, and from where will the change come?

During the ayahuasca ceremonies that I attended the participants sat in a circle for the entire night until dawn. Ayahuasca was drunk two or more times by everyone during the night while the person leading the ceremony sang songs and moved around the room. In between the people seated in the circle were small buckets or bowls, the purpose of which soon became apparent. To quote Mr. Hancock: “…the ayahuasca brew has a foul, foul taste, really, really hideous, and a dreadful, dreadful smell. And after you’ve drunk your cup, you’ll find in about 45 minutes or so you’ll find that you are sweating, you’re feeling nauseous. Pretty soon you may well be vomiting, you may well have diarrhoea…” Thus the little buckets dotted around the room. Throwing up was considered to be a good thing and that you were fully surrendering to the ayahuasca.

The question that always has bothered me about this experience was this: if someone said that they ate or drank something which smelled horrible, tasted terrible and made them throw up, what would your response or thought be? Mine would be that they clearly ingested something that did not agree with them, and they probably shouldn’t put that into their body again. All of those physical responses that are listed in the quote above are pretty basic primal bodily responses and functions to ensure that we do not eat something that is harmful to ourselves, and if we do, to get it out of us as quickly as possible.

And yet, ayahuasca is called “medicine” or even given the title of “The Medicine”. But this medicine clearly does not work in harmony with the body. Peoples’ bodies quite obviously demonstrate this by the reactions that they have. In order to make ayahuasca even work, it is necessary to suppress the body’s natural function, which would normally render it ineffective. What is used to override this evidence is the belief in the payoff of the visions and thoughts that the ayahuasca brings, and that this will bring healing and evolution to the participant and to the planet at large.

But there is an interesting point here. What kind of evolution is this bringing?

As mentioned before, we are living in a time of immense suffering among humanity. But what is the source of this suffering? Who or what is it caused by? This is a huge question, but for the sake of space I would put forth that it stems from the intellectually mind-driven human being who is disconnected from the rest of humanity and acts without consideration for his fellow man… and more importantly, without consideration and love for himself. If a person was truly connected in full to himself and the rest of the people he shares this planet with, and then felt the devastation that might be caused by his actions to himself or another, that person would not do those actions. However, we all know that devastating actions are committed on a daily, if not hourly, basis. So how do we perform them? How do we allow them to happen? We use our mind to intellectually overcome that which our true feelings and primal responses are telling us to not do. How do we know these feelings and responses? Through that which we use to feel: our body.

And so, if someone chooses to drink something that their body is, in no uncertain terms, saying “I do not want that in me” and they drink it anyway, more than once, the only way they could possibly do that is by disconnecting from their body and using their mind to overpower it. Therefore any experience that comes thereafter is a product of the mind’s override. Any perceived benefit that comes out of such an experience will be from the mind, which is acting in disregard to the body that it lives in. And it is the disconnected mind that has caused the devastation we are currently having to deal with on this planet.

If we are going to change our consciousness, does it not make sense to do it in consideration of all of us, and not part of us? Our experience so far in human history has been that living while ignoring a part of our wholeness has landed us in a mess, which is going to take humanity a very long time to heal.

Like Mr. Hancock, I also stopped smoking marijuana after using it habitually for over 14 years. I didn’t suddenly change overnight. I undertook a personal process, and over a fairly short amount of time I no longer had it in my life, and never will again. The path to stopping for me was started by learning to love myself. All of myself, without exception. No drugs involved, no cold turkey, no rehab, no rituals. What started me off was hearing a single sentence, which stopped me in my tracks:

“No one does drugs or drinks alcohol because they feel good about themselves.”

I realised that I had fooled myself into thinking that I was feeling good when I was high or tripping, but in fact overall I was feeling less than I knew I could. I was having some intense (and a few horrible) experiences, which I glamourised, but the glamour faded and eventually I had to go back to living life. A life in which I was not actually feeling what was there to be felt, because I was forever looking towards the next time I could trip or party, and on a daily basis I was dulling myself with cannabis. I was dulling myself because I did not like who I was, but feeling my dulled self made me like myself even less, so I wanted to dull myself more. But why did I decide to dull myself in the first place? What was it that I did not want to feel? What was so bad about me that I thought that inhaling marijuana smoke into my lungs every day was going to make me better than who I was without it?

I thought long and hard on this, and I came up with nothing. Despite all of the stresses and ‘bad things’ that have happened in my life, there is nothing in life that is not worth feeling. There is nothing in life worth burying, no matter how bad it is. One of the great illusions that we are fed from childhood is to “get on with life”, and that feeling the truth of what life really is gets in the way of living. So we come up with ways to fool ourselves into thinking that we are living, when in fact we are letting life slip away into the bottom of a glass, or burn up at the end of a joint, or get lived by someone else on TV or in books, or we hope that some guru/ preacher/ person-on-a-stage can tell us what life is about so we don’t have to really feel it for ourselves. Because if we feel our life and the truth of it in both its ugliness and its glory, then it is ours, and we don’t want that responsibility.

So I decided that after trying so long to change things by doing the same thing, I was going to do something different. I chose to take responsibility for what my life felt like and let myself feel it. And everything changed.

In taking responsibility for my life I have come to know that substances like ayahuasca and marijuana, or any practice which requires us to override and to disregard any part of our whole being, will only ever continue our dissatisfaction with life. These are ways to hide from the truth of life, not to connect to it. Our dissatisfaction with our lives comes from the ways we choose to live them, and nothing else. Make truly different choices and our lives change not just for ourselves, but for those around us too. The trustworthiness of any guidance back to our divine self has to be determined by feeling how it feels in our bodies in every way, not by ignoring our bodies in any way. True divinity is indivisible and encompasses the all-ness of us as beings on every level. Any less than that and we just end up with more of what we have already got.

  1. Absolute wisdom here Naren. You remind me that any choice I make that does not consider and respect my body is a step away from love and responsibility.

  2. If God is real, then it should not take a mind altering experience to recognise his presence. Surely there is another way, and if one does require one’s mind to be altered so that they can experience a different reality, then once again one has to question the validity of the experience.

  3. Thanks Naren, for highlighting some of the many different avenues we as a society use as so called fun or a spiritual experience. The ones you mentioned here are often given the ok because they are “natural” and don’t do much harm appearingly so on the surface. But as we look a little deeper there is a whole lot of disharmony that occurs to the body, family and wider community from the use of these substances.

  4. It is interesting to feel the consciousness or bunch of ideas we subscribe to with such things as ayahuasca. Your comments on if we ate a food that tasted foul and made us throw up combined with needing to override our bodies natural ability with the MAO inhibitor illustrate ridiculous the whole thing is. But it doesn’t seem so ridiculous when we are held by the beliefs that come with it. When we subscribe to ideals and beliefs we become held and bound by them and from the outside looking in, it is absurd.

  5. I have taken ayahuasca, and it was just another step away from myself. Looking outside of myself for answers. Not taking responsibility for my life. Still wanting to blame something out there or get answers out there. I want that and I will not carry on until I get it.

    I have accomplished lots of things in my life but I realize now that I have done them with this sense of not ok that has colored it all. Doing things for the wrong reason. I am now working at surrendering to life and trusting that things will be OK. Doing deep self care and beginning to trust myself more. No more looking outside of myself for answers, feeling I already have everything I need. Yes, just let go and be myself, like I was when I was a young child.

  6. “No-one does drugs or drinks alcohol because they feel good about themselves”. This makes sense but I never would have considered it in the past. I used to look forward to a Friday night party and having quite a lot to drink and would have considered someone who said this to be incredibly boring.
    However, now when I look back – all those times never came from a true place of feeling good about myself, it gave me a false sense of life and it was this numbing that I enjoyed but in truth knew it never supported me.

  7. I have had personal experiences of a number of substances, and some of those were fairly intense experiences. During these times I placed myself at risk in various ways, that when I was not ‘under the influence’ I would never even consider doing sober – ever. Anyone who has caused themselves serious harm or anyone who has been with someone who has done so, will never speak positively about these behaviours, especially when faced with the reality of the consequences of taking these substances. Drugs that are deemed to be safe because they are ‘natural’ or part of ‘traditional culture’ (so they must be ok) I would consider are the most dangerous, because of the false sense of security we get from those beliefs we carry. I can certainly understand that someone may want to numb their experiences of life, but with this we heal nothing and actually bury our hurt even further. When we heal our hurts we begin to see that we are not our hurts and who we are is worth cherishing more than we could ever imagine.

  8. “No one does drugs or drinks alcohol because they feel good about themselves.”
    There is no need to elevate or glamorize ourselves when we feel the love of who we are inside our bodies. It may not be drugs or alcohol, it could be unending projects or food or the way we communicate…the list goes on and on how endlessly we seek to find ourselves. But nothing from the outside could ever show me the truth of who I am, only from experience I have learned this truth. The simplicity for me now is to feel — feel everything — if my body agrees with it and I could feel love, then and only then is it a yes. I am not perfect on this, and it is okay to be imperfect, in the process of accepting what is imperfect, it allows deeper understanding towards myself and many many others. To me, this is the process of returning to love, which we are all heading towards and supporting each other on.

    1. This is very clear about how we can support ourselves to live in a simple and loving way, it also helps me with the gentle understanding required to ‘undo’ all the habits and disregarding things that I do without even thinking.

  9. Thank you for sharing this article Naren. I have done ayahuasca ceremonies in the past and it has given me a chance to be honest — that was a period when I was extremely unfulfilled about myself, my whole life was a mess and I did not want to feel it. But that is not truth, as within myself I know I am love, in fleeting moments I could even feel it, but I have not made the choices to truly be love. When I truly surrendered because there was no other option, I gave myself the chance to accept first and foremost that yes I am love. And therefore, no matter how it is not easy, I will commit to the small steps consistently to not stop myself from feeling this truth. I am nowhere near perfection as there is no destination to love, but this consistency is inspiring me every day to keep walking–knowing there are so many people who are just like myself.

  10. “What is needed is a change in consciousness, this is true, but it is very important to be clear on what consciousness we want to change to, and from where will the change come?” – Great point and well said! What if our access to the divine is within us, if the particles of our body are innately divine and so it would be a matter of using our mind to re-connect within to that source of consciousness rather than disassociate from our body on a drug-induced head trip…

  11. I love every word spoken in the article, and this morning when I read it, this particular sentence stood out for me: ‘whatever we choose to heal the situation we find ourselves in, cannot come from the same place that caused the problem in the first place.’ Once humanity acknowledges this, humbly concedes to this, only then will we start to see real and sustainable change and perhaps much needed questions to the calamities taking place the world over.
    Until that point we will fudge and try to fix, and ingest crazy substances and ideas to avoid the questions that are staring at us blatantly in the face – why do we blatantly and so obviously keep repeating the same thing in a different flavour and colour, but all along not change the quality or energy of what we do, and then arrogantly expect a different outcome? An outcome that will never eventuate – until we look at healing from a very different place, from an energy that as you say Naren, considers the whole of us and nothing less.

  12. A great read Naren on choice and our responsibility to say yes or no to love and how our life can unfold from those said choices. Thank you.

  13. Awesome to read this story Naren. I imagine it speaks to many many people. Whilst drugs have not been a part of my life, I’ve certainly made choices to escape who I am because I’ve not been happy with who I was. The choice to start to appreciate yourself when you come from a place of complete self loathing is a difficult one. But if it’s even a slight consideration to change the way you feel about yourself, then you’re more than half way there. Because the truth is we all have choices, and we know what doesn’t work for us, we just love to be stubborn about it.

  14. This is such a deeply wise piece of writing. It can be applied to anything that we use in life to dull ourselves. Overriding the body with the mind can have devastating effects, not only to ourselves but for the people around us and also for the world at large. The responsibility that you speak of is paramount to making the changes that are needed for a more healthy and harmonious world.

  15. This is such a powerful piece of writing Naren. The wisdom and absolute comon sense shared here is immense and so needed for a world that still believes drugs or alcohol are Ok for us.

  16. There is such simplicity in living in and responsive to our bodies and the all that they communicate with us. The shift from thinking ourselves through life (where we often complicate and keep ourselves in cycles of behaviour born out of habit and tradition) rather than feeling and discerning (where we respond to the real and immediate sign posting in our body) is a big one.

  17. It strikes me that in taking a drug like ayahuasca, people are looking for answers, but also trying to escape from what they actually already know, but don’t want to deal with. Ayahuasca is an extreme example but many of us do exactly the same thing with our preferred method of escape. I totally agree, “No one does drugs or drinks alcohol because they feel good about themselves.”

  18. Reading your blog I was saying to myself ‘WHAT on earth!!!’
    So thank you for your honesty about what it is like to take ayahuasca, and great that you could ask yourself this question;
    “What was so bad about me that I thought that inhaling marijuana smoke into my lungs every day was going to make me better than who I was without it?”
    It’s the same as drinking copious amounts alcohol to forget our woes but when we wake up with a throbbing headache we still have the issue we were trying to escape from but worse we feel ghastly too. Taking drugs alcohol or gorging ourselves on food is not the answer to our problems. And until we start to address them they will never go away.

    1. Exactly Mary but the problem is that many people do not want to deal with the underlying issue of why they are addicted, so they will continue until their body says enough is enough and they get ill. Even this does not stop many. When I pass by the Lismore Base Hospital I often see the lung cancer patients with their drip attached to them outside the hospital smoking a cigarette and coughing at the same time.

  19. “from the mind, which is acting in disregard to the body that it lives in. And it is the disconnected mind that has caused the devastation we are currently having to deal with on this planet.” Spot on here Naren, spot on. What you share here shows it on a micro/one on one level that when you disconnect from your body and the mind takes over, it can make decisions that your body has to endure. If all of us are doing that to ourselves and each other, I agree that this is causing great devastation on the planet.

  20. Intense visions and images may seem more ‘enlightened’ but what of discerning their quality? So easily can people be hooked out of need into colours and imagery that they choose to destroy their bodies.

  21. “If we are going to change our consciousness, does it not make sense to do it in consideration of all of us, and not part of us?” In this context it is our body that is being referred to, but it also refers to the whole of humanity. We cannot change our own consciousness just taking into account ourselves, for this simply perpetuates the division and individualism we have in society. True change is when anything we do say or think takes everyone into account – no-one is left behind. How many of us do that? It really highlights the responsibility we have not to indulge that part of ourselves that is looking for distractions and numbing and wants to be irresponsible.

  22. This is super insightful Naren, and it’s interesting to compare this to our (humanity’s) other ‘vices’ and habits e.g. drinking, smoking, drugs, sugary foods, binge watching television etc., because they all follow a very similar pattern… In order to escape reality and distract ourselves we choose to do things that cause a great deal of harm to our body; some with short term ‘relaxing’ effects, others which are naturally not actually enjoyable, and this suggests that there is a pretty huge elephant in the room that we do not want to address meaning that the quality of our lives is far below joy or contentment. But what if the best ‘remedy’ for this was to take it head on? What if the elephant was an ant in disguise, and if we were to embrace seeing it for what it truly was, bring MORE purpose to life and more love to our relationships and body then we would find our way back to a place where joy was NATURALLY our everyday?

  23. When we feel hurt we have a choice to heal or override it. ‘With ‘getting on with life’ we learn to manage and mask the hurt pretending we’re ok when in truth we are not. It is through making self loving choices that we begin to heal the root cause of our hurt and no longer are the drugs, alcohol or in my case the dramas needed in life to delay and keep us in our comfort from living who we truly are.

  24. It is so great to have your lived experience of the deeply destructive and harmful impacts such drugs can have – to expose the false promises that such drug experiences try to offer. Many are seduced into these drugs through seeking the very thing that is already living inside them, only their effects will guarantee that access to this truth will be further lost in the darkness and fog of the illusion..

  25. Beautiful sharing Naren, full of humility. I have found that when we are living in pursuit of the next fix, whatever that may be, we are taken away from the innate truth of our being. Now connecting to truth may not sound very exciting but what it is in my experience is joyful and this joy emanates naturally from within not needing any external stimulation to trigger or initiate it. If we seek thrills and excitement then such things come from outside. But if we choose joy, then we need to come back to ourselves and what we already are in our fullness within.

  26. thank you Naren for bringing the reality and the truth of this drug. so many swear by the insights they receive, that they think they are getting closer to understanding the truth, which is in fact them getting trapped deeper into the illusion. that is the most harmful thing of all.

  27. Powerfully said Naren Duffy. How indeed can causing harm actually offer true good and benefit to all? On has to question just what the visionary experiences and the rest offered through such forays actually contain (in terms of universal truths), and exactly where such visions are ‘fed’ from…
    A body that has been rendered incapable of discerning true energetic difference between that which harms and heals, loses its capacity to discern truth.

  28. We must question what drives the desire for ‘access’ to such apparent knowledge in the first place… I have also watched Graham Hancock’s videos on use of ayahuasca over the years, and personally, I do not discern this man to be one who is connected to the love of his soul.
    My reading on this, is that such forays – which can occupy one for lifetimes – only take us further away from the love of the Soul and of God, and not closer to Him. Although the proponents of such dark arts would I know say otherwise, to me they have entered into levels of illusion that will keep them blinded for many a year.
    Thing is, is the love truly in their eyes? That’s for us all to discern…

  29. A great article Naren that clearly and simply spells out the reasons for avoiding any sort of substance or activity that is harmful to the body. Your first hand experiences of these substances and where you were then, in contrast to the beautiful tender and sensitve man that you are today cannot be underestimated. Your wise words could potentially help so many others who have yet to understand the depth of harm that they are doing to themselves by taking part in such rituals.

  30. It is so interesting for me to read what consequences those drugs have and in some sort I also have thought we need to expand our concsiousness and went to spiritual healers and courses.
    What I learn with Serge Benhayon is that we already have got everything and that expansion is our natural way of being. So the only thing what we can do to stop this expansion is to think we have to do or take something in order to expand, when in truth we already have it in us. How crazy is that and how far away have we separated from our natural being?

  31. Thank you for sharing Naren I love this line; “No one does drugs or drinks alcohol because they feel good about themselves.” I can understand how this stopped you in your tracks, once we come to know and feel the love we are by making loving choices into our life there is no way we could go back to these self abusive behaviours.

  32. I have not taken ayahuasca but this is probably only because it was not in the circles that I was in at the time when I was also looking for ways to disconnect and not feel everything that I could feel. It amazing how many different substances we find to ultimately disconnect and yet we do not often stop to consider the true consequences.

  33. Very intelligent piece of writing Naren, and most importantly a great true support in how to heal from the body naturally within yourself. You can’t ever completely fix things from the mind – “any practice which requires us to override and to disregard any part of our whole being, will only ever continue our dissatisfaction with life.”
    We have a very intricate WHOLE bodily make-up and to simply feel (instead of thinking) we can discover how to be fully responsible for it. Feeling the body by deeply caring and loving it through both pain and feeling well shows you which choices are healing or harming.
    I did all sorts of drugs too. I knew of no way or tools to look after myself. I was not aware of how to be responsible. I injested drugs to numb down the intensity of everything that I was feeling. My deep pain was me not honouring what I had always felt and openly being myself and expressing what I was feeling. I did not give myself space in my body to feel and express. “The trustworthiness of any guidance back to our divine self has to be determined by feeling how it feels in our bodies in every way, not by ignoring our bodies in any way.” Creating the space to allow yourself to feel what you ALREADY know starts with you by holding and supporting the precious you.

  34. There is a great deceit in any thought, ideal, belief or substance that promises to ‘open our minds’. We don’t need to open our minds any more than we need to open a door when there is a fierce wind blowing outside, we simply need to open our hearts and by virtue of this surrender be able to see the real openings we create when we give our power over to a force that is external to us.

  35. Reading this article I still feel a slight unease in my body of all the experiences I have had with ayahuasca. The apparent dissatisfaction my body was feeling and my stubborn overriding it and the consequences that led to so much trauma for myself and others around me, coming into acceptance the stupidity and accepting this without further judgement on such choices I have made, requires a deep breath. But when I breathe gently and steadily, what I feel is an undeniable love within me, and with that, yes I can accept all of this in honesty and keep moving on.

  36. I agree it is quite nuts to think that smoking marijuana every day is going to make us better than who we are without it? From my own personal experience this was not the case. For the 20 years I smoked I disliked myself intensely but continued because the numbness I felt when stoned was easier then taking responsibility for my life.

  37. There is no doubt that ayahuasca is one of the most dangerous drugs on the planet and what makes it worse is that is it seeped in illusion that this drug will somehow make you more enlightened, unfortunately for all who take it it is involution step in their development rather then an evolutionary one.

  38. Substances like Ayahuasca, change our perception of life where we think we are moving forward in our evolution and becoming more loving and understanding but in fact we are stuck in the thick of illusion that is very difficult to separate from unless we receive a correction that allows us to consider another way which is true and healing for our soul.

  39. “There is nothing in life worth burying, no matter how bad it is.” So true Narren, and when we do not bury we can deal with what is in front of us and in my experience it is never as bad as we thought it would be.

  40. “No one does drugs or drinks alcohol because they feel good about themselves.” So the question is: what are the choices you have made that prevents you from feeling good about yourself? The answer might include the drugs and alcohol.

  41. Thanks for sharing Naren. I have found in life, one of the difficulties is that people have come up with solutions as to how to make their life more bearable by using drugs, alcohol, food or whatever. Very few have come up with the truth as you have expressed here, the way one lives makes ones life, it can be joyful or bearable .

  42. If a drug such as ayahuasca would leave us putting a hideous smelling, tasting and looking liquid voluntarily into our body and throwing it up is thought to be a surrendering process to its “healing” qualities, then this drug has successfully kept us in the consciousness of enormous ignorance and a total separation from the body. It is really that simple.

  43. It’s interesting that, in our desire to expand our conscious mind with drugs and alcohol, we also end up taking on a whole new set of consciousnesses – the belief that drug and alcohol experimentation is a good thing to pursue, that ‘natural’ drugs won’t harm us, that it’s OK to smoke and or drink every day, that enlightenment can be found via a trip experience… and so on. We then have to dismantle each of these beliefs, as well as wean ourselves off our drug/s of choice. What a lot of unneccessary baggage to take on and have to deal with! But that’s the nature of the thirsty human spirit, always looking for the next experience, the next solution… and rarely within.

  44. ‘What was so bad about me that I thought that inhaling marijuana smoke into my lungs every day was going to make me better than who I was without it?’

    Naren, what a superb set of questions you asked yourself during the process of walking away from your addictions. This is where the true medicine is to be found.

  45. Hallucinogens are called hallucinogens for a reason, because they create hallucinations, things that are not real. Go sit under a tree, you’re surrounded by God’s wisdom, no drugs needed.

  46. When using these substances the dialogue is based on the love of the taste or effect these product have on our confidence etc – it is certainly not about loving ourselves in any way as we are actually imbibing poison straight into our body.
    “No one does drugs or drinks alcohol because they feel good about themselves.”
