    In a situation when a person is high on crack, I'm not boring to them. If I knew they were high on crack I'd try to be the most boring person in the world.

    If depression is unhealthy, yes... Part of cognitive psychology is trying to get your more logical thinking to come in before your reflexive emotions run away with you.

    Decide to. Think of things that bring you joy. Mimic joyful expressions and postures. Even just the ability to put other things aside and recall joy.

    It's about inner peace and having a good nature. It comes from with and is blocked by bigotry over the anger family of emotions.

    Blaming others is a huge obstacle to happiness.

    it amazes me that people waste their money on cocaine.
    good quality (speed) with MDMA makes cocaine look like your sitting around a small camp fire shovelling in piles of hundred dollar notes to watch them burn for entertainment.

    If you have never tried crack /cocaine before and wonder what the deal is...

    you feel amazing with extra energy for about 25 minutes maybe 45 minutes, then when it wears off you feel like you have just had a very close friend move away to a different town...
    and thats while your having your night out.
    so its a bit of a downer.... while your supposed to be having a good time.
    the only way to prevent that downer is by taking more and more, and that is what people get addicted to as their body starts to, 'stop making all its own happy chemicals' that keep 'your normally happy day' "happy" from one day to the next.

    The more you take and the longer you keep taking it for, the worse the feeling gets when your not on it.

    addicts feel like they have just lost a close family member while they are going through a horrible divorce all rolled into one.
    soo if you like that kinda thing then by all means, become a crack addict.
    it destroys your immune system aswel over time and your bodys skin function.
    you loose weight but at the cost of dumping all sorts of terrible chemicals into your fat cells and skin layer.(plus you gradually destroy your brains ability to handle complex thinking problems and it gives you a form of PTSD[long term addiction])

    not to mention, crack/cocaine speeds up your heart rate.
    soo if you read on science you will know that that drastically shortens your life and vastly increases your chance at getting a heart attack (arrhythmia) which then triggers panic attacks(anxiety disorders, emotional lack of coping with your children and family, continuing domestic abuse etc) and perpetuates any PTSD.

    consciousely using it in very controlled amounts only when in very specific situations would work ok.
    but thats like suggesting your an olympic gold medalist racing car driver, so your just about to drive like a maniac around town with no seatbelt on for fun because you know how good you are at driving.
    99.99999% of all people will crash and always injure other people at the same time.

    thats how it works.

    just wanted to add for any young ones reading and thinking about recreational drugs...
    remember,
    you are trusting someone you do not know, with your life.

    if they get the mixture wrong, you could wind up spending the rest of your life in a psychiatric hospital, or dead, or brain dead.

    THAT IS THE REALITY

    it only takes 1 pill & thats it, your a brain dead dribling vegetable whom your family has to care for untl you die of some horendous complication infection or long term organ failure.

    Uppers make you feel high, when they wear off, you feel low. Drugs that make you feel a little bit down, like cannabis, make you feel that little bit higher when they wear off.

    assuming your sitting at an emotional 0 point and do not suffer from any mental illness.
    however, humans are emotional animals.

    the vast majority of recreational drugs are taken in conjunction with an emotional drive, of sorts.
    thus there is rarely an emotional 0 point when starting to take a drug.

    people like to fool themselves into thinkng they are not being emotively driven to take drugs, however, remove the emotions from the human and the drug becomes useless in its desired purpose.

    mostly if your taking a drug to make yourself feel better emotionally, then you need to 1st comprehend why you feel that way, prior to taking the drug.
    unles your prescribed by your doctor(which is not what i am talking about).

    I know this woman that uses crack. She has three kids from different fathers and they're in the care of the Province. She wont stop using and was recently raped, but didn't inform the police because they were both using at the time. She may be HIV positive I've heard. Was reading about some of the cravings former users have for the sex even years after they stopped taking the drug. How vivid it is in their dreams.

    If I were in her position, I'd guess my excuse for using crack would be to try and cope emotionally with screwing up my kids' lives. And I know I couldn't so it would be a downward spiral to psychotic episodes.

    That is why I don't use it. People addicted terrify me cause I don't exactly know how to act in a situation with such a mentally unstable person.

    :EDIT:

    And yeah, it's like they always want to get to know me better.

    No matter how much drugs you consume, eventually you gotta come down. Intoxication seems to be the emotional state on steroids.

    The Thing about hard core addiction is that it is as pervasive as any serious Psychiatric illness.
    it is just the superficial Puratins who espouse anti alcahol like moral control that tend to muddy the waters when looking to quantify the immersion of perasonal, psychological & social life.

    there is a vast number & variety of Functional addicts.
    we could even define those who get regular vaccinations as functional addicts.

    There is a lot of mania caused by modern life and the more technically demanding modern life becomes, the more mania type dysfunction shows its self as being discordant.
    Attempting to move Political Administrations which espouse 100 year old social life into a modern 21st Century Leadership is quite a task.

    Thats a relatively normal response.

    Psychiatric illness should be the same.
    there is a common tendency to seperate the difference between addiction & pstychiatric illness as a modality of mental accomadation, this its self tends to drive basic instinctual metaphors.

    What is the differance between intellectual interest, emotional interest, Romantic interest, sexual interest, mania interest...

    thats a good question.
    the answer is quite technical, complex and fairly in depth.

    I skimmed this opioid thing: "If you're giving it the artificial substance," she explains, the brain thinks it doesn't have to make the real thing. "So when you take away the artificial substance, everything is so painful." https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/27/health/functioning-heroin-addicts/index.html

    Don't think my brain naturally produces alcohol, however.

    Functioning addicts? Guess that would presume there is a world that can still be worth functioning in.

    Wow, that sounds depressing.

    when there is no emotional , physical , mental and sexual abuse , will we become happy without drugs .

    and when stress is eliminated will drugs only become a way of recreation , rather than escape of ones situation in life .

    Confronting our demons rather than silencing them with alcohol and drugs is the best therapy. Life itself is a scary dragon.

    There's always stress in life.

    First statement . True .

    Life is not a scary dragon .

    Life , is life .

    There is always stress in life , the thing is it is a 24/7 condition , nowadays . This is not a Natural condition for Humans to be in .

    It embodies potential dangers, but also endless possibilities. We are creatures of our ancestors, children of nature, and we are programmed from the beginning to be cautious, yet our endless curiosity pushes us forward into the unknown. We desire security, but we also take pleasure in potential danger. Yes, life is a scary dragon, which makes it all that much more interesting.

    That's saying quite a lot.

    I'm not certain that is necessarily true. Maybe it depends on the nature (underlying cause) of the stress. There are many factors involved and degrees of severity. I do believe stress is natural in life

    Stress is Natural in Life .

    The problem is this stress has consequences towards the body .
