"Naked Breakfast" by William Burroughs

it mainly shows the thoughts of a drug addict during the effects of drugs, so in parts it is difficult to understand and sometimes resembles incoherent delirium. but if you discard the usual rules of logic of a sober person (after all, the author was not sober at the time of writing), then the reasoning in the book will seem quite fair to you.

There is a book called "It is necessary for the living." Everything is described in great detail, from the first person. I recommended it to many friends who read it - they liked it.

I would suggest reading Jacqueline Susan - "One Time Isn't Enough". In general, the plot of the book is somewhat broader than the topic stated by the author of the question, there is love and youthful maximalism and manifestations of the father's unenlightened love for his daughter. It reads quite simply, the plot is addictive. Trips with methamphetamine and LSD are well described.

There is an interesting little book by Barbara Rosek "The Diary of a Drug Addict" (Pamiętnik Narkomanki). It was in our school library (no matter how strange it was), and in some academic year we read it in unison with almost the whole class, practically passing it on from one to the other.

Answer 12

If you want a cute story about how to get out of the state of a drug addict, then "Bob the street cat" is fine. Although everything is described too cheerfully and kindly, even naively, it is worth reading. And if you are planning a trip to London, why not meet the author and pet the famous cat?)

## Jim Carroll - The Basketball Diaries

A classic about a young hipster growing up on the dirty streets of New York. The book brought Jim Carroll great fame in the underground environment. Jack Kerouac, after reading for the first time fragments of Carroll's funny and sometimes terrible chronicle about the life of an urban teenager from thirteen to sixteen years old, decided to write: "Thirteen-year-old Jim Carroll writes prose better than 89% of modern writers." Later, excerpts from the work, printed at the dawn of the seventies in The Paris Review, caused a sensation - and continue to cause to this day.

## Alice's Diary (Go Ask Alice)

This is the diary of a young drug addict. Names, dates, names of cities have been changed at the request of the participants in this story.

## Selby Hubert - Requiem for a Dream

The book tells about the fates of four New Yorkers who, unable to bear the difference between dreams of an ideal life and the real world, seek solace in illusions.

Sarah's son Harry, his girlfriend Marion and best friend Tyrone are trying to get rich and break out of the life that surrounds them, selling heroin. The guys themselves indulge in drugs. Life seems like a fairy tale to them, and none of the four realizes that he has become addicted to this fairy tale. It gradually becomes clear that the main character of the novel is Addiction, and the book itself is a manifesto of the triumph of addiction over the human spirit. Requiem for all those who, for the sake of illusion, betrayed their lives and lost a Human in themselves.

## Crowley Aleister - Diary of an Addict

This is a true story. It was changed just as much as the mystery of the names requires. This is a terrible story; but it is also a story of hope and beauty. It reveals with frightening clarity the abyss on the edge of which our civilization trembles. But the same Light illuminates the path of humanity: and we ourselves will be guilty if we step over the edge. This story tells the truth not only about one of human weaknesses, but (by analogy) about all others; and from all of them there is only one way of deliverance.

The novel is based on reliable life material and tells about the difficult period of growing up of a good Czech guy Michal Otava and his peers, drawn into the network of drug addiction and did not find the strength to break out of them.

The same good old Irwin Welch - the novel "Ecstasy" - three stories about love and chemistry. The 2011 film adaptation is also noteworthy. -----------

Answer 15
May, 2021

I really recommend "Heroin Diaries" - the real diary of Nikki Sixx, bassist of the cult band Motley Crue (now also Sixx: A.M.), during his heroin addiction, with comments from people who surrounded him during that difficult period. The true story of the life of a scandalous rock star, an honest, dirty, painful and hopeless book. It makes a lasting impression, be sure to read it! Translation, however, amateur.

Answer 16
May, 2021

I would recommend this.

Everyday life, glitches, breakdowns "from the inside", but in such a way that this is not scary (although in fact it is a complete trash) - the already mentioned "Inferiority" by Bayan Shiryanov.

The experience of entering drug addiction, senseless horror inside her, monstrously complex healing - three essay stories by Yegor Radov: "How I became a drug addict", "How I was in a drug addiction hospital" and "How I recovered from drug addiction.

Life, crime, death, horror, but served "from a distance" - the brilliant novel by Mikhail Gigolashvili "Ferris Wheel".

Well, Burroughs too, I guess.

Oh! I, as a well-mannered young lady who knows about drugs from books, can recommend three books.

The first - philosophical - Carlos Castaneda "Teachings of Don Juan". Peyote and long sitting around the fire. I made a summary, I remember)))) The second book was "Inferiority" by Bayan Shiryanov. For me, a well-bred young lady, in 1998 this work was just a shock - recipes, pharmacies, cooking "screw" ... no romance ... Well, and the third book is Hunter Thompson " Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas". This book is really scary. I couldn't even finish reading it. I watched the film calmly, but when watching the film you are an outside viewer. And when you read the book, you are a participant. I could not survive all these deliriums ...

Oooh! Read Andrey Doronin "Transsiberian back2black" !! This is a book of correspondence between Doronin and Olya Marquez. He once wrote to her about his dark heroin past, they came out like real letters. Olya first posted excerpts in her LJ, and then published them as a book in a small print run. Amazing thing! Read in one breath. Dirt, of course, but it's absolutely impossible to come off. Bulgakov's "Notes of a Young Doctor" is still a must. A wonderful book. "Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo" - about a girl Christian, who at the age of 13 tried heroin for the first time. It is based on real events that happened to Kristiana Feldsherinoff in the early 70s. She talks about family, girlfriends, boyfriend, love for Bowie. All this against the backdrop of West Berlin. Depressive, but meets your stated requirements.

Answer 20
May, 2021

F. Christiane - "I, my friends and heroin". 1975, Germany, thirteen-year-old girl Christina. The most important thing in this book is the realism and accuracy of how the main character slowly falls to the very bottom
