Diary of a Drug Fiend
I purchased this book from a used book sale at the local library. All opinions are my own. Have you read this book? Let me just say do not This is one of the few books that I would not encourage people to read.

Diary of a Drug Fiend , published in , was occult writer and mystic Aleister Crowley 's first published novel, and is also reportedly the earliest known reference to the Abbey of Thelema in Sicily. The story is widely thought to be based upon Crowley's own drug experiences, despite being written as a fiction. This seems almost conclusively confirmed by Crowley's statement in the novel's preface: "This is a true story. It has been rewritten only so far as was necessary to conceal personalities. Crowley made a study of drugs and their effects upon the body and mind, experimenting widely himself.
