Drug Addiction for False Euphoric Intellectual Thoughts

Drug Addiction for False Euphoric Intellectual Thoughts

The more aristocratic illusion concerning the unlimited penetrative power of intellectual thought has as its counterpart the more plebeian illusion of naive realism, according to which things 'are' as they are perceived by us through our senses. This illusion dominates the daily life of men and of animals; it is also the point of departure in all aspects due to psychotic disorder, mood disorder, and anxiety disorder.


Amphetamines, including methamphetamine, ecstasy (MDMA),Phencyclidine (PCP),anabolic steroid LSD, ketamine (special K),Cannabis such as marijuana and hashish, opioid drugs include morphine, heroin, OxyContin, Vicodin, Percodan, inhalants such as glue, paint, solvents, central nervous system depressants such as barbiturates and benzodiazepines and nitrous oxide etc. produces euphoria, hallucinogen or perception and feelings of relaxation, stimulant and mind-altering effects. Hallucinogens can connect the three forms of the psyche, delivering euphoric intellectual thoughts and feelings that would normally remain only subconscious. It is because of this that hallucinogens are often called a life changing experience.

These negative thoughts heighten relapse dangers by setting off cravings or reinforcing cravings that have already been triggered, as well as by activating addiction beliefs. To the extent that the thoughts remain outside of awareness, they are regarded as being true, which therefore increases their effect. They try to drive or do other activities that place you and others at risk of physical harm when they are under the influence of the drug.

What is unique about the type of brain disease that results from drug abuse is that it starts out as voluntary behavior. But once continued use of an addictive drug brings about structural and functional changes in the brain that cause compulsive use, the disease-ravaged brain of a drug user closely resembles that of people with other kinds of brain diseases. Particularly for young people, peer pressure is a strong factor in starting to use and abuse drugs. A lack of attachment with your parents may increase the risk of addiction, as can a lack of parental supervision.

When taken recreationally, these drugs inspire a dreamily contented disengagement from the problems of the world. Their use diminishes our drive to constructive activity as consumers in today's competitive global marketplace. By diminishing the craving for human companionship, the addict substitutes one form of addiction for another. Thus junkies are usually "selfish".

Cocaine users reported the intellectual thoughts of the euphoria experienced from the use of cocaine might possibly cause a tremendous craving and relapse to drug use, even after long periods of being without the drug. For the brain to experience the same level of pleasure, higher doses and more frequent use of cocaine will become necessary.

Our conscious mind always fights against painful feelings, thoughts, and situations in our families and social stigma but addicts use them to maintain addictive behaviors and thoughts. As addiction progresses, defenses become more and more powerful and rigid, hiding the worsening consequences of addictive behavior. Part of recovery is looking at reality and taking responsibility for the uncomfortable consequences of our addiction.

Making it even more difficult is the fact that their craving becomes more heightened and irresistible whenever they are exposed to any situation that triggers a memory of the euphoric experience of drug use.

A case study given evidence:

A case in heroin addiction that, initially, they take the drug for the high, but ultimately they take the drug to avoid being sick. The same is true, to some degree, in crack cocaine addiction. That is, we find that people coming off crack cocaine get depressed very badly, and so they are, in effect, medicating themselves, giving themselves crack cocaine to avoid the low. What they’re trying to do is pump their dopamine levels up, which doesn’t happen, but they keep trying to do it.

It is known that Parkinson’s disease is a deficit in dopamine levels, which results in motor problems. Both schizophrenia and depression have dopamine components to them. Yet most experts agree that nicotine and cocaine both are very "addicting" (recent studies indicate that about one-fifth of cocaine users become dependent; about one-third of people who use nicotine products do so).

Abusers may see vivid colors and images, hear sounds, and feel euphoria like intellectual, emotional and spiritual sensations that seem real but do not exist. Abusers also may have traumatic experiences and emotions that can last for many hours. Some short-term effects can include increased body temperature, heart rate, and blood pressure; sweating; loss of appetite; sleeplessness; dry mouth; and tremors.

They may not be aware of the fact that they are developing a tolerance to the drug itself or the amount used. While trying to intensify or prolong the effects of a high the user will sometimes increase their dose. Deaths resulting from accidental and intentional overdoses are very common among heroin users. Heroin causes physical dependence, and the withdrawal symptoms are extremely uncomfortable.

There are significant psychological factors present, such as the craving for more, deep depression, extreme exhaustion, hunger, despair, a sense of deep remorse, etc. Increased drug craving results in increased agitation and anxiety. Now, in order to lessen these feelings or to even get some sleep, users end up using or abusing other intoxicants like alcohol, sedatives, or marijuana. This behavior increases the risk of becoming addicted to multiple substances and increases health risks including constricted blood vessels, dilated pupils, and increased temperature, heart rate, and blood pressure.

As with stimulants most often is used in a "binge and crash" pattern. Because tolerance occurs within minutes - meaning that the pleasurable effects disappear even before the drug concentration in the blood falls significantly - users try to maintain the high by binging on the drug.

Person becomes completely unpredictable and possibly violent. Consistent users also develop a characteristic paranoia, extra energy, sensory enhancement, or heightened performance, a sense of mistrust of the environment around them, including loved ones and family members.

The subconscious memory motivates the individual to seek this drug because of the false imprint. The brain, in effect, has been trained that using the drug is the fastest way to feel good. Due to the extreme physiological or physical pain some experience during Drug Withdrawal they can relapse before they complete the withdrawal process.
