Get High Now: Without Drugs

James Nestor

This is a funny, entertaining and educational book—it’s the perfect, cringe free gift. Get High Now explores the avenues humans can go down (or up, depending upon your point of view) to alter their consciousness in the most wonderful way—without the aid of drugs. The book is basically full of experiments; from rubbing your closed eyelids gently until you hallucinate to smoking red ants. But you don’t have to be into insects to find something that works for you, here. Yogis have been practicing breathing methods that get them high, and rather quickly, for centuries. Why do you think they always look so blissed out? Along the lines of the old slumber party game, “Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board”, Get High Now is about tricking the mind, with no ill side effects. Well, except maybe from that ant thing. Can’t say I’ve tried it.
