Bio: Lennon Kicked Heroin Habit By 'Floating' Aug. 15, 1988 2:10 AM ET NEW YORK (AP) _ John Lennon kicked a heroin habit with the help of a sensory-deprivation tank and felt as healthy as he'd ever felt in the weeks before his murder, according to a new biography.
Lennon kicked the debilitating habit in 1979 with self-discipline and a cedarwood box filled with a warm saline solution in which he would float for up to half an hour in the dark, Albert Goldman writes in ''The Lives Of John Lennon.'' The sensation reminded him of getting high, according to the excerpts of the book published in this week's People magazine. In November 1980, following the release of his and Yoko Ono's album, ''Double Fantasy,'' he called producer Jack Douglas. ''John was totally satisfied with himself mentally and physically,'' Douglas said. The book says Yoko experienced hallucinations and threatened suicide, but kicked her heroin habit with the help of a physician.

This is ridiculous I thought, what am I doing in here? Who told me this was a good idea? This is stupid! It was frustrating because as the line of thought goes the whole idea of a darkness retreat is to go into an unknown place to find answers to questions that we don’t even know we have. The visuals I was seeing since day 2 were not getting any more intense and I was beginning to lose patience in waiting to see how they would develop. The only motivating factor was that I knew by day 9 or 10 the dmt phase of the darkness retreat was supposed to begin. Dynamic Visuals Begin As I was lying in bed, looking up at the ceiling, the wall became a type of canvas with a light tan colored background and dark black colored abstract shadows in the shape of people.
The visuals continued to develop from here. Cutting Though the Deception The Dream Guru The most profound experience happened on day 13. Three Fold Dreaming. Bliss.
