I feel that any form of so called psychotherapy is strongly contraindicated for addicts. The question Why did you start using narcotics in the first place? should never be asked. It is quite as irrelevant to treatment as it would be to ask a malarial patient why he went to a malarial area.
Burroughs, William S.
1914-1997 American Writer

If an addict who has been completely cured starts smoking again he no longer experiences the discomfort of his first addiction. There exists, therefore, outside alkaloids and habit, a sense for opium, an intangible habit which lives on, despite the recasting of the organism. The dead drug leaves a ghost behind. At certain hours it haunts the house.
1889-1963 French Author Filmmaker
My case is a species of madness, only that it is a derangement of the Volition, and not of the intellectual faculties.
Coleridge, Samuel Taylor

In this country, don’t forget, a habit is no damn private hell. There’s no solitary confinement outside of jail. A habit is hell for those you love. And in this country it’s the worst kind of hell for those who love you.
1915-1959 American Jazz Singer
Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol or morphine or idealism.
1875-1961 Swiss Psychiatrist
To possess your soul in patience, with all the skin and some of the flesh burnt off your face and hands, is a job for a boy compared with the pains of a man who has lived pretty long in the exhilarating world that drugs or strong waters seem to create and is trying to live now in the first bald desolation created by knocking them off.
Montague, C. E.
1867-1928 British Author Journalist
