Fiction Or Non Fiction: A Story Told!

Four years before the approval of the 1970 Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act, a non-fiction book with pills on the cover stayed on the New York Times bestseller list for 28 weeks. Author Jacqueline Susann said that she wrote Valley
of the Dolls to warn people against taking drugs and drinking alcohol. Her book told the story of three women who used diet pills, barbiturates, and alcohol.

A fictitious novel, the story was of the innumerable faceless people who resorted to such measures to be called ideal and admired. The book, set in the entertainment world, reflected society's acceptance of those drugs. Susann wrote about what led the women to take drugs and the effects of drug abuse, including overdose. Drugs changed one character's personality, and she was hospitalized to withdraw from drugs.

I am aware of the dangers of what most of the diet pills being offered over the net can bring to the body. I have tried the healthiest way of losing weight which is exercise and diet. I wouldn't have resorted to weight loss pills if these two were effective for me. Maybe one way or another I may have done it the wrong manner but either way, I still can't keep up with it as I am now swamped with so many things to do. I know that the culprit is my unusual hunger pangs. I have tried different diet pills before and I would agree that most, if not all, can really bring danger to our body. To rule out my options, I went to a doctor to have some advice and I was given an appetite suppressant, given the fact that I always feel hungry most of the time. Prescopodene works for me and so far, no side effects. I'm definite that I'm really losing weight as not only that my hunger has been curbed, I also feel lighter. Indeed, there's too many ways of losing weight, you just have to find what works for you best.
