"Loving, first, loving and gentle: loving as a dog (forgive the prosaic smile, but I know no earthy love so pure and perfect), and gentle as a fawn; then courteous - courteous to
, high or low, grand or grotesque, King or Caterpillar, even as though she were herself a King’s daughter, and her clothing of wrought gold: then trustful, ready to accept the wildest impossibilities with all that utter trust that only dreamers know; and lastly, curious – wildly curious, and with the eager enjoyment of Life that comes only in the happy hours of childhood, when all is new and fair, and when Sin and Sorrow are but names – empty words signifying nothing!"Slide5
THE RED QUEEN
THE QUEEN OF HEARTS
"Off with his head!"Slide6
`Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?'
`That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,' said the Cat.
`I don't much care where--' said Alice.
`Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' said the Cat.
`--so long as I get SOMEWHERE,' Alice added as an explanation.
`Oh, you're sure to do that,' said the Cat, `if you only walk long enough.'" "`But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked. `Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: `we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.' `How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice. `You must be,' said the Cat, `or you wouldn't have come here.' Alice didn't think that proved it at all; however, she went on `And how do you know that you're mad?' `To begin with,' said the Cat, `a dog's not mad. You grant that?' `I suppose so,' said Alice. `Well, then,' the Cat went on, `you see, a dog growls when it's angry, and wags its tail when it's pleased. Now I growl when I'm pleased, and wag my tail when I'm angry. Therefore I'm mad.'"
TWEEDLEDEE AND TWEEDLEDUMSlide8
`Let's pretend that you're the
! Do you know, I think if you sat up and folded your arms, you'd look exactly like her. Now do try, there's a dear!' And Alice got the
off the table, and set it up before the
as a model for it to imitate: however, the thing didn't succeed, principally, Alice said, because the
wouldn't fold its arms properly. So, to punish it, she held it up to the Looking-glass, that it might see how sulky it was -- `and if you're not good directly,' she added, `I'll put you through into Looking-glass House. How would you like that?'Slide9
Down the Rabbit Hole..
“In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.
The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down a very deep well.”Slide10
`I wish you wouldn't squeeze so.' said the Dormouse, who was sitting next to her. `I can hardly breathe.'
`I can't help it,' said Alice very meekly: `I'm growing.'
`You've no right to grow here,' said the Dormouse.Slide11
`May I give you a slice?' she said, taking up the knife and fork, and looking from one Queen to the other.
`Certainly not,' the
, very decidedly: `it isn't etiquette to cut any one you've been introduced to. Remove the joint!'
And the waiters carried it off, and brought a large plum-pudding in its place.
`I won't be introduced to the pudding, please,' Alice said rather hastily, `or shall we get no dinner at all. May I give you some?'
looked sulky, and growled `Pudding -- Alice; Alice -- Pudding. Remove the pudding!' and the waiters took it always so quickly that Alice couldn't return its bow.Slide12
So Alice hunted among the chessmen on the table till she had found the Red Queen: then she went down on her knees on the hearth-rug, and put the kitten and the Queen to look at each other. "Now, Kitty!' she cried, clapping her hands triumphantly. `Confess that was what you turned into!'Slide13

Relations to Drugs
During Carroll’s time, five out of six families used opium habitually.
It was commonly said that infants “shrank up into little men” when they became sick, much like the Duchess baby turns into a pig.
Mind altering experiences relate closely with happenings in Wonderland.
Growing and shrinking constantly, Caterpillar smoking the hookah, eating of mushrooms and drinking substances out of a bottle to alter ones state.
The Alice books can relate to “trips”. When Alice falls down the rabbit hole, her sense of time and movement significantly slows down as sometimes happens when someone experiences a “trip”.Obviously most animals do not typically speak or walk on two legs. This could be related back to hallucination, which can also happen when on a “trip”. The Cheshire cat disappears and reappears, leaving his grin behind. The Caterpillar’s habit of smoking hookahs, and his suggestions to eat the mushrooms.Slide17

Ensure that you as a person would not even give this a try even when forced to.
If you see a beloved one of yours suffering from drug addiction, volunteer and render help.
If you have a family member who is suffering, render your moral support to the person in all aspects.
Don’t ever try to insult the drug addicts for it may complicate the situation even more.
Try to find the best rehab center available in your area and get your beloved one to a popular psychiatrist and get help
Finance would be a big problem when it comes to withdrawal. Get help from social groups and ensure that the drug addict gets help from self help groups frequently
Motivation and patience are the keys that can help the addict come out of the problem. Do what you can in aiding them to get this in throughout the withdrawal process.
During sober living, make sure that the drug addict is not amidst triggers.Slide19
