    “If you find self-reform too hard
    In spite of your intense desire
    For lack of firmness to discard
    The habits that stink of the mire,
    There is no reason to despair,
    Try what you can time and again,
    Beseech your Maker to repair
    The faults and you in strength will gain.”

  • playstationpod:

    u can overdose on opium -.-

  • LordBendah:

    I am an opium addict myself.. Not quite sure what he means by the “ritual”

    Perhaps Dado is referring to the act of smoking opium itself..

    I agree with him 100%, and will take opium over all other opiates.

    That was a beautiful pipe btw.

  • maximon2:

    The inclusion of ritual in whatever one does in life enhances the experience to a whole other level: Ritual adds dignity and grace to the act of living.

    Dado was a magician of ritual…

    I just posted all 5 parts of this film, hope that’s cool? I really think it’s one of the most touching and personal drug theme film out there, one that doesn’t look for sympathy through war stories. It has a celebration of life outlook!

  • poleske:

    I think you have to take into account that these people are rather wealthy. Opium in and of itself is not that damaging, much of the damage comes from impurities. I think smoking opium is better for old people. If you are young than it is a waste of time.

  • poleske:

    Dado Ruspoli has fucking class

  • beeb1421:

    the 10 years i smoked opium were more exciting and greater than the next 30 i will spend in mediocraty.
    it increased my creativity but killed my motivation!

  • lbcanibus:

    why the fuck do people personify drugs? drugs are drugs, that’s it. i’ve done damn near everything and not once have i ever done that. they’re drugs.

  • PoisonLilly:

    Also, the man seems perfectly sane…And he has that something: sparkle in his eyes, like joy of life… He is normal. So opium, if they use it reasonably, is not a bad thing. But the woman seemed hazy, there is great difference betweem opium and heroin, heroin gets more to your brain and there are halluzinations etc…
