    Departing Drugs (1993)

    See also Self-deliverance

    Applicants must be over 21 yrs and enclose proof of age. (We also reserve the right to refuse purchase.)
    Departing Drugs was the first international syllabus of drugs for self-deliverance, compiled by an international team using thousands of pages of collated data and the latest clinical evidence from the Netherlands. Scrutinized, by experts in several fields, Departing Drugs presented methods with illustrations and simple, thorough explanations. The book exploded myths about previously accepted self-deliverance drugs and sheds new light on readily available drugs. It included a country-by-country index providing brand names for over twenty countries, and an extensive glossary. Proof of three months' membership of a right-to-die society required. Non-profit venture.

    Knowledge and drugs availability has changed since Departing Drugs was published. We recommend purchasing either Five Last Acts II or Five Last Acts - The Exit Path.
