Higher .. and Higher .. 5/10/2005
DRUGS to destruction, to health and happiness is the theme of Jost Sauer's book Higher and Higher, which he will discuss with readers at the Noosa Library on October 20th at a 6.30 evening function sure to interest a wide range of guests.
One-time speed addict, smuggler and deserter, Jost is now a Traditional Chinese therapist with a Bachelor of Health Science degree, specialising in holistic drug repair and also a lecturer at the Australian College of Natural Medicine.
His book aims to inform people about the potential for recovery from drug addiction, drawing on his experiential and academic knowledge to offer fresh insight into illicit drugs, depression, pain and the spiritual path and providing for addicts and their puzzled relatives the Sauer answers to questions like :
Why drugs are one of the biggest businesses in the world
• Why people get 'the munchies' or feel paranoid on marijuana
• Whether marijuana really can lead to harder drugs
• Why you feel immortal on speed
• Why acid trips can feel so good — or so bad
• Why total strangers bond on ecstasy
• Whether drugs can enhance your spirituality
• Why some antidepressants can make your depression worse
With drug use and abuse now a common feature of 21st Century society, understanding the whys and wherefores could help resolve many conflicts. Bookings for the Jost Sauer event can be made by phoning Noosa Library on 5442 4411. The cover charge for guests will be $5.
