“I want to be rid of junk…”

“I want to be rid of junk more than I ever wanted anything.”

“Wherever I go and whatever I do I am always in the strait-jacket of junk, unable to move a finger to free myself.”

What symbol of opiate addiction as uber-cool and culturally liberated hedonism made these statements?

William Burroughs.

Addicts hate their lives.
