Substance Abuse Six Pack 2 free pdf ""My head expanded wider and wider, revolving with inconceivable rapidity, and enlarging in space with every revolution. It filled the room - the house - the city- it became a world, peopled with the shapes of men and monsters. I spun away into its great vortex, and wandered about its expanses as about a universe. I lost all perception of time and space, and knew no distinction between the realities around me, and the phantasmata which sprung in endless succession from my brain." - The Hasheesh Eater." Substance Abuse Six Pack 2 brings together six addiction classics: The Hasheesh Eater by Fitz Hugh Ludlow A History of Champagne by Henry Vizetelly The Truth about Opium by William H. Brereton The Betrothed by Rudyard Kipling An Ode of Thanks for Certain Cigars by James Russell Lowell The Soul of Wine by Charles Baudelaire "Substance Abuse Six Pack 2" is a sinner's smorgasbord of vice-fueled delights including the classic addiction memoir "The Hasheesh Eater" by Fitz Hugh Ludlow- a fascinating history of Champagne from 1882 by Henry Vizetelly- "The Betrothed" (the infamous poem in which Rudyard Kipling declares a "A woman is only a woman, but a good cigar is a smoke.")- a revealing Victorian study of opium addiction and more. ""It is time to get drunk! So as not to be the martyred slaves of Time, get drunk- get drunk without stopping! On wine, on poetry, or on virtue, as you wish."" - Charles Baudelaire.

He was born in Bombay, in the Bombay Presidency of British India, and was taken by his family to England when he was five years old. In 1907, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and its youngest recipient to date.
