"Mickey leapt out of the light and said: 'Give up smoking!' And he did."

Sherlock Holmes. Detective, violinist, and drug user.

"Sherlock Holmes took his bottle from the corner of the mantelpiece, and his hypodermic syringe from its neat morocco case.

With his long, white nervous fingers he adjusted the delicate needle, and rolled back his left shirt-cuff. For some little time his eyes rested thoughtfully upon the sinewy forearm and wrist, all dotted and scarred with innumerable puncture-marks.

Finally, he thrust the sharp point home, pressed down the tiny piston and sank back into the velvet-lined armchair with a long sigh of satisfaction."

UNDERSTANDING DRUG USE - Part 1: From the viewpoint of users

Peter: "As a teenager I listened to the Beatles and put trying LSD on my list of things to do . . . With magic mushrooms it's like you can talk to God"

Fiona: "Cocaine is like snorting a line of confidence. Ecstasy is the best day in your life pill"

This is part one of a two part series where we seek to understand drug use.

On this show we speak with two 'recreational' users.

On the next show we invite philosopher, Dr Andrew Bernstein, and psychologist, Dr Ellen Kenner, to offer their analysis and comments.

Peter and Fiona are not junkies or addicts. Peter runs a successful restaurant and Fiona is an international model. They have used: LSD, Marijuana, Cocaine, Amphetamines, Hash, Opium, Heroine, and Ecstasy.

We discuss: Their favourite drugs. Why they use them. The experience of using each drug. How they started. The notion of escapism and comparing different types of 'recreational' escapism with using drugs like: travel, fishing, going to Disneyland, seeing a movie. The use of drugs for 'enhancement' and celebration. Telling reality from fantasy. Can drugs enhance creativity? Their views on using drugs safely, like checking the quality, buying from trusted suppliers. And much more.

IMPORTANT NOTE: PRODOS.COM does NOT endorse drug use. This interview is an investigation of the issues. There is nothing gory or X rated in this interview. No foul language is used. No explicit sexual references are made. There are no instructions on using drugs included.
