What we talked about

When my clients talk about their experimentation with
psychedelics they talk about the deeply personal and meaningful
experiences.  Can you talk a little about this in the framework of your work in relationships?

Do we know how are drugs (illicit/prescription) impacting our relationships? 

How can my drug use impact my sex life?
