    Hello people.

    I was wondering if the drugs administered to the human body are active in themselves or if they stimulate parts of the brain to release natural drugs?

    Eating large amounts of chocolate is the same as being in love (so scientists say) but how is this possible? Does the chocolate itself make you feel love, or does it simply arouse the brain into producing chemicals allowing us to feel love?

    It depends on the drug.

    It is not possible and scientist do not say that.

    No, just no.

    Read up a little on endorphins - the body's "feel good" hormones, and the seat of the feeling of well-being.

    Things that make us feel good, like chocolate and love, tend to do so by indirectly increasing our endorphins.
