Mélanie Berliet interviews Eddie Einbinder, the author of How To Have Fun And Not Die:

I thought to myself, why haven’t I Googled “most common ways kids are going to die today,” and put it up on my fridge? I was right that there are some blanket rules that can seriously up your odds of surviving. If you can take one sentence from the lecture I give, it should be that the vast majority of overdoses result from two or more substances at once in your body. That right there, on top of keeping in mind that what’s billed as either heroin or coke or ecstasy includes multiple substanceswhatever they’re cut with for profitis key.

When people do a drug respectfully, in the way it’s meant to be done, they rarely die.
