Recreative Drugs

  • Hella Assassins

    Despite all defenses for drugs known as recreational, they all act on the nervous system, circumventing the feedback systems of serotonin receptors, endorphin, dopamine, among others, as well as emulate altered states of consciousness and mood, leaving marks of manic behavior.
    They were used by native peoples and civilizations as a ritual and religious controlled use, but what is seen today is that their unbridled use causes damages not yet well understood by society and by medical science itself, besides representing a simple and puerile manifestation of rebellion, which does not sustain itself through life or leads to the social, biological, psychological and personal deterioration of individuals.
    It is well known that we are all subject to mood swings, from euphoria to melancholy, from excitement to prostration, where there is the metaphor of a "hole in the chest." Unfortunately these existential voids suffer the artificial fit of these drugs, including those prescribed by indolent and inconsequential medicine that rejects individual and group psychotherapy, that old school of psychiatry.
    What happens is that the search for these licit or illicit drugs leads people not to face their fears, traumas, anxieties and panics in an intelligent way, taking advantage of their potential of overcoming, but they enslave individuals to chemical dependence and increase the rates of ideation suicide, since its serum levels due to the inefficiency of neurotransmitter receptors superecitation lead to obliteration of the electrochemical balance capabilities of the brain, except in the cases predicted by neurology, which evaluates the preexisting cases of neurochemical impulse transmission deficiencies.
    When one chooses to be enslaved by a substance, the path may be without return. It is our daily reflection on what really brings us real pleasure and personal satisfaction without drug artificiities that we do not know its effects in the long term.

    Nicely written. Just like a scientist would.
    However, humans need to realize that there are other forms of "drugs" out there that are not entirely accepted by the mainstream scientific community and population.
    Those include excessive use of electronical entertainment devices such as personal computers, mobile phones, tablets, "smartwatches" and so forth.
    These devices are not a substance that one consumes, but show identical withdrawal symptoms just as from psychoactive chemical drugs.
    Another not entirely accepted form of substance abuse is sugar.
    Everyone LOVES it. And there is a certain need regarding it.
    Scientist have found out over the past decades that sugar is just as harmful (if overconsumed) as modern contraband drugs.
    Problem is that the human body, especially the brain, needs it.
    Not only that, but almost all processed groceries today contain sugar levels that exceed far that of groceries from the past 200 years, for example.
    And with all the added saccharine nowadays, a certain dependence is acquired from childhood.
    Many diseases have sky-rocketed over the past few years as for instance Diabetes and obesity.

    @Karina-Kara Yes Karina, the way people relate to their pleasures defines whether it is salutary or not (you treated the subject as a nutritionist on sugar👏 ). We may call it addiction when the person is controlled by that habit and whether it compromises their daily hours or directly or indirectly affects their health. Attachment to electronic gadgets and online life when they compromise the individual's gregarious needs can signal risks even to mental health. We seek pleasure and this is innate to the human being and we must remember that we should be in the conrole and not the other way around.
