I cannot believe people still even think this! Alice in Wonderland was written in the Victorian-era where it was both ILLEGAL and SCANDALOUS to take any kind of chemical substances. Alice in Wonderland is a wonderful masterpiece of classic literature and has amused children for years. Lewis Carroll (who wrote the original Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass novel and who was in no means a "junkie" or a pedophile as some people call him) wrote Alice in Wonderland for the amusement of Alice Liddell, the daughter of his college dean and her sisters, Lorena and Edith. It was a book he made very interesting yet silly and nonsensical for her and her sisters TO READ AND ENJOY. He put all his efforts into writing a book for a girl and even named Alice after her and it turned out to be one of the greatest classics in the world. Lewis Carroll never went near drugs in his life. And about the "Smaller or Bigger" thing that you are concerned about, Alice didn't want to "feel" smaller or bigger, she wanted to actually BE smaller or bigger since she kept on shrinking and growing and it was a POTION she was drinking not any kind of chemical substances or alcoholic drinks that tasted like a mixture of roast turkey, cherry pie, and custard (If i'm correct). She wasn't wasting herself to feel like she actually "matters" or hallucinating, since it was labeled "Drink Me" , she just drank it being seven years old (it says she is seven years old in the book) and possibly hoped the potion could get her out of the mess she was in. The character of Alice isn't supposed to even go near any drugs. Some of you with your very sick minds come up with theories that this is all similar to some hallucinogenic substances and Lewis Carroll was on an "acid trip". He was a brilliant author inspired by an adventurous young girl! It was written for children! There had to be some magical nonsense in it! Just think!
Read Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass many times.
