Not hallucinations or some other druggie silliness but a far more subtle yet deeper disruption of mental faculties.

I lost a sense of responsibility I once had, I don't care about deadlines much, I used to be as dependable as the sunrise. It may not be the absinthe but it went hand in hand, I didn't drink before.

I've experienced some of those issues myself in the past couple years, but suspect it was due to simply needing a bit of reinvention, and perhaps taking a minor break after 22 years of the same job (which I did, and it helped).

A refreshed old tattoo and making a tacky green guitar for myself worked wonders. Thank God it wasn't the booze.

Probably not any more than a red sports car when you turn forty. And yet, I can't deny that a thought similar to yours passed through my mind a month or two ago.

Off the cuff, it seems to me that absinthe is a luxury akin to a work of art, and the very best absinthe represents the pinnacle of that luxury. After having experienced such a rare marvel in one aspect of life, it's difficult to be happy with other aspects of life in which such great heights have not yet been attained. That reality may indeed lead to a certain kind of mental disruption.

I may have come to absinthe seeking relief from or medication of the deeper disruption of my mental faculties. I've tried several other methods and substances. The underlying state has remained consistent throughout, I believe.

I try to convince myself that my arm
isn't there --
to retain my sanity.

Then I try to convince myself that it is.

Anybody who was reading this Forum a few years ago would have had no trouble believing we were all fucking crazy… forget a "subtle yet deeper disruption of mental faculties."

Yet Tisserand made clear that absinthe was the opposite of a luxury good, it was a basic staple of the working class.

If that statement was only true in the past then all of us have gone quite wrong.

The red sports car from when I turned 40, has gone on to a third life as a race car, so that insanity has sadly left me.
Ammo and gun prices gave gone to stupid, so that insanity is toast.
I have neither the time or patience to homebrew (and I find even the best store bought to not be very drinkable).

Absinthe is the only insane thing I have now. Without it, I'd go completely fucking nuts.

I'm embarrassed to say how much of the stuff I drink, or have drunk, but I'm a drunk and I don't care for beer.

La reponse à ta question is très simple : bien sûr.
