From Chocolate to Morphine: Everything You Need to Know About Mind-Altering Drugs (Revised and Updated)by Andrew Weil Winifred Rosen
From coffee to marijuana to smart drugs, Dr. Weil's definitive guide to legal and illegal drugs - revised and updated for the 1990's. The authors insist that readers learn to distinguish drug use from drug abuse. As long as society continues to call all those who take disapproved substances "drug abusers," it will have an insoluble problem of enormous proportions. Real drug abusers are those in bad relationships with drugs,* whether the drugs are approved or disapproved by society, and unfortunately little can be done to help them, unless they want to change. Preventing drug abuse is a realistic goal. Two approaches are possible. One is to teach people, especially young people, how to satisfy their needs and desires without recourse to drugs. The second is to teach people how to form good relationships with drugs so that if they choose to use drugs, they will continue to be users and never become abusers.
