Some soldiers had families waiting for them at home, some had religion, and others had dope.” In O'Brien's fiction, all drugs are grouped together under the term "dope." As when writing about many of the other aspects of the book -- casual sex, killing, to name a few -- O'Brien the narrator remains non-judgmental. They are things that happen. Some people are drug addicts, others carry their girlfriends' stockings. In the moral balance and the wider craze of the war, these small transgressions hardly seem to matter.
Many authors who struggle with addiction use their writing as a way to express themselves through various characters. One prime example is F. Scott Fitzgerald, the author of The Great Gatsby, who reportedly “began drinking at a young age and it became such a common force in his life that alcoholics appear as central characters throughout his writing”. This connections with alcohol in Fitzgerald’s writing reflect the traits of an alcoholic author. Fitzgerald wrote a lot about alcohol and he may have used this to satisfy his alcoholic desires: “So drunk out on the gravel drive that Mrs. Ulysses Swett's automobile ran over his right hand” (Page 62). In this quote Fitzgerald portrays Ripley Snells as “so drunk”.

The relation of power with special emphasis laid upon the role of women in the society is a never- ending debate.

Coetzee is definite in sharing the realities of post-war torment on women population through serious character depictions in his novels. Post-colonialism is the central theme in the works of J.M. Coetzee, and every work of the controversial author reveals some point of pain accepted by meek women.
Marijuana was said to have a beneficial effect on its user and his relationship with other people. Furthermore, various psychedelics, such as LSD or psychoactive mushrooms, were used to alter and expand one’s mind in order to achieve ultimate wisdom and put oneself in a ecstatic, zen-like state. LSD, most notably, occupied a special place in the hippie’s hearts – it was considered to be a “sacred communion” which brought together everyone in the community. However, the popularity of drug use among hippies had serious drawbacks – the movement was perceived as degraded and immoral; additionally, police raids often went through the communes in search of illegal substances. The hippie movement’s rejection of mainstream values, firm support of naturalness, and its admiration for the human body, manifested itself strongly through frequent nudity existing within the borders of many communes, as it was promoted even by a number of religious movements.
