Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 6, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: If T had read the letler 1 am about to write a year ago I would have laughed it but I hope and pray that every person who Ls on pot and considering experimenting with harder drugs for curiosity or kicks will read this and learn something As far back as I can remember I have been aware of mankind's problems and wished I could help alleviate human suffering. I pondered the meaning of truth and sought an- swers to "Who am I? Where am 1 going? Is life worlh the I heard drugs could give added insight and new dimen- sions so I decided to experiment. Grass just laid me back and wasted my time, so f went lo peyote and mcscaline. Next I tried acid, and finally Speed. I took about fen trips before I overdosed and slipped into a cavernous hell. For ten hours 1 tried desperately to hang on to lite. 1 prayed to a God I didn't believe in to keep me sane until the drugs wore off. I went as high and as low as a person can go and slill come hack. I found not truth but fear; not comfort, but agony; not light, but darkness. When the dawn broke I was so grateful lo be alive I swore off drugs for- ever Yes, I was through with drugs, but drugs were not through with me. lrour months later the flashbacks began. Walls be- gan to move, rockets began to go off in my head. Dizzy spells, weird noises, sleepless nights, terrifying images, mania- cal laughter cut deep inlo my skull. My heart wouldn't slop pounding, f was swimming in against these horrible sensations. Before I took drugs I knew I had problems, but at least I knew I was sane. Now my problems were overwhelming me and I wasn't sure of anything. Please don't worry about me. Ann. I'm getting profes- sional help and crawling back, an inch at a time. I'm going lo make it. but it's a slow process. I just hope my letler connects with some cat who is where I was a year ago. If such a person is reading this now, please don't say, "You're a nut. II won't gel me. I can handle it. It's all in your head." What do you have but your head, man? Your head is a masterpiece of electro-chemical engineering. Don't mess it up with drugs like I In The Pacific Northwest DEAR FRIEND: 1 can add nothing except my (hanks for a moving report from someone who's been Ihere. God bless you and write again.
