Hunter S. Thompson Did A LOT Of Cocaine (Picture)

Below is a picture of Hunter S. Thompson’s printed daily “schedule,” submitted basically without comment, because what is there to say other than “holy fucking shit.” With a guy like Hunter S. Thompson you never really know whether he was being serious or outrageous, but when it comes to the late writer, those two sync up more often than not, so it’s safe to assume this was, at least for a time, Thompson’s day to day routine.

The full schedule:

3:00 p.m. rise
3:05 Chivas Regal with the morning papers, Dunhills
3:45 cocaine
3:50 another glass of Chivas, Dunhill
4:05 first cup of coffee, Dunhill

5:05 cocaine

5:30 more ice in the Chivas

9:00 starts snorting cocaine seriously
10:00 drops acid
11:00 Chartreuse, cocaine, grass
11:30 cocaine, etc, etc.
