I’m a drug addict.
Fortunately, thanks to the 12 Steps, I’m an addict in active recovery.
That means I can’t take drugs ever again, or I’ll be on the fast-track to divorce and homelessness, or maybe even jail, institutions and death.
Fuck, I can’t even drink wine any more.
Cheeky glass of Barefoot White Zinfandel? Nope.
Comforting sips of delicious port over the Christmas holidays? Not a chance.
I love exploring different ideas and experiencing new things. Something I used to love to do was to smash my brain into a different dimension with my drug of choice, DXM. I’d lie on my bed, headphones on, listening to my favourite music. And what I’d experience would be totally out of this world.
Music sounds even better when you’re fucked on DXM. It’s fucking awesome.
But, like I say, I can’t do that any more. Unfortunately.
So, what’s the closest I can get to being fucked off my face and exploring other dimensions inside my own mind, but without taking drugs?
I listen to this mixtape every day. It’s now my favourite piece of music ever.
Bless you, Flume, you take me closer to God.
