During my first semester of college my dormmates became deeply concerned with my sudden lapses into a deep sleep. They encouraged me to see a doctor, which I did, and what I had was diagnosed as narcolepsy. He prescribed a drug. As my body became adjusted to it, the dosages had to be increased. It wasn't long before my reliance on the drug was evident. I tried to shake the drug (and the narcolepsy) by sheer willpower. It did not work.
