Highs and Lows of Ecstasy Hangover
Posted by shutah on August 7, 2007
“The Independent” journalist Johann Hari appears to be inciting argumentative response to his Seroxat article The Highs and Lows of our Ecstasy Hangover .
I felt rather angry at his quote … “A tiny number of suicides have been tenuously linked
to anti-depressants, and on the basis of these unproven accusations, an entire demonising bandwagon has been put on the road.” The man obviously hasn’t looked at the growing number of websites and blogs about the subject; or spoken with the loved ones of those who have committed suicide, whose suffering will never end!
His entire rant is overwhelmingly negative and inaccurate, scathing and biased, and doesn’t see the whole picture. Despite his numerous awards, the man is, in my opinion, nothing short of delusional in his writing. Perhaps he and Shelley Joffre should debate the issue?
