With cheeks sticking out, the kat chewer feels relaxed while concentrating
but later on becomes dizzy as he shifts his mood-gears from sanguine to melancholy.

High with narcotic leaves
He enjoys chewing Kat
It makes him contented
But feels pain afterwards
As melancholy kicks in

To get his pleasure back
He should kill the pain
Not with medical drugs
But with the Kat itself

To the Kat addict
Pain and pleasure
Are just neighbors
Between them
The distance is short

Any drug to alter the state of mind is not good. Sooner or later we must face our demons head on.....

Addiction to Khat is a contributing factor to the problems in Somalia. It weakens the family's purchasing power as the father is a Khat addict. It reduces the productivity of about 75% of Somali men who are addicts because they sit 6-10 hours every day just chewing Khat and they sleep 12-16 hours afterwards due to Qaadiro. This weed is from hell.

Thank you brother.

You describe the cycle of any addiction quite well, Abdi-Noor.

This is a simple, easily understood explanation of the addict's life and moods, Abdi-Noor. You have done a great job with this.
