The Confessions of a Drug Addict

Author's account of his addiction to marijuana and heroin.

The confessions of an addict drawn into the half-light of the 1950's London drug world. The author is a young clerk from suburbia who, while frequenting the Soho jazz clubs begins by smoking marijuana and eventually becomes a pusher, addicted to heroin and winding up in jail multiple times. No less harrowing because it's a half-century old.
