"I met the town doctor in the street. I liked him. He was always high on drugs. I was not a drug man, but in case i had to hide from myself for a few days, i knew i could get anything i wanted from him"

Drink was Bukowskis choice of stimulus, he dabbled in drugs but it was more than likely to hear him criticising them. Even though for a while he did write for ‘High Times’ a title dedicated to all things drugs.
