Silence

"...He waved us away, shaking his heid and screwing his eyes up. Ah sais nae mair. Whin ye feel like he did, ye dinnae want tae talk or be talked at. Ye dinnae want any f... fuss at aw. A didnae either. Sometimes ah think that people become junkies just because they subconsciously crave a wee bit ay silence."

After reading three Irvine Welsh novels back to back (Trainspotting - the movie as well as the book - is at top of my movie/books list of all time classics), I almost started speaking Scottish!

Glue and Porno were okay though. Though Porno makes a good read if you want to visit Trainspotting characters 10 years down the line in their lives.
