"There is perhaps a single predictable time of life when taking crack-cocaine is sensible, harmless and both emotionally and intellectually satisfying. Indeed, for such an occasion it may be commended. Certain estimable English doctors were once in the habit of administering to terminally-ill cancer patients an elixir known as the "Brompton cocktail". This was a judiciously-blended mixture of cocaine, heroin and alcohol. The results were gratifying not just to the recipient. Relatives of the stricken patient were pleased, too, at the new-found look of spiritual peace and happiness suffusing the features of a loved one as (s)he prepared to meet his or her Maker."
Not for me. Unless I am in physical agony, I prefer to die alert.

Teminally-ill with cancer sounds like "physical agony"...well, to me it does anyway. Of course, mebbe I should try this cocktail out beforehand, just to be sure I like it, heh.
