Provokátor Mapazine Issue 26, March/April

Provokátor Magazine Issue 26, March/April 2008

You’re Sick and You Always Will Be.

“Gone”, she sighed to herself, “gone are the days of doing heaps of drugs and having as much sex in as many public places and positions as possible and maybe getting caught.”

While compiling the information for this issue's theme of addiction, one couldn't help but feel wistful.

Jsi nemocný a vždy budeš.

“Jsou pryč” vzdychla si, “všechny ty dny nezřízené intoxikace a divokého sexu, nejlépe na veřejnosti, kde vás mohou chytit, jsou pryč.

Hledání materiálu k tématu tohoto vydání – Závislosti – mě nutně vedlo k zamyšlení.

Du bist krank und wirst es immer bleiben

“Vorbei”, seufzte sie vor sich hin, “vorbei sind die Zeiten von Drogenbergen mit Sex in so vielen öffentlichen Plätzen und Positionen wie möglich mit dem Kick evtl. entdeckt zu werden.“

Als ich für das Thema dieser Ausgabe – Sucht – recherchierte konnte ich mir nicht helfen und wurde ein bisschen wehmütig.

Covering issues from fat-camps to Ibogaine. This month we take a closer look at dependence from the most obvious to the most absurd. The process of becoming an addict, what we're addicted to and the mammoth industry that has been created to provide for and cure our addictions. Don't think you're above addiction, it comes in many different forms and flourishes within every echelon of society. We're all hooked on something in one way or another -- be it chocolate, heavy metal, VyVoleni or Facebook (!).
