Opium as the Religion of the People

Behold! There is a New God whom the people worship as they worship no other. A God of incomparable Bliss. Opium is the new religion of the people.

Those who worship at the altar of drugs are sure of their god’s love for them. The feel it every time they worship. The love from their god is an unparalleled joy.

They will sacrifice for their god too: money, possessions, family, friends and often ultimately their lives. They give it all up for the momentary delight that drugs bring them. “All for you! All for you!”

Not everyone who uses drugs worships drugs. Only a select few do that. Many are called, few are chosen.

Genuine worshipers chase quicker and more intense gratification. The worshiper will do anything to avoid feeling their emptiness and hollowness.
