> i was reading some articles, about addiction and dopamine. I read a certain part that addicts, they have a low dopamine part, and to make up for that they use ... you know stimulants, nicotine, dopamine releasers, gambling, opiates, i read throughly that seeking a dopamine increase. That non-addict persons have stable flow of DA in the nerve synapse, and people with low DA seek things to stimulate it. Personally smoking, nicotine i don't smoke anymore, i vape, but it's like i have have nicotine to release dopamine, if im not on any type of releaser, im depressed and feel emotionally flat, looking for something to get me out of it. But that's what i read in addiction, there's seeking dopamine release for pleasure or euphoria to make uop for the lack of it. There's some people who don't take any medicines, nothing, no dopamine releases, like napoleon in history, they had a full will power to do things, and were full of charge, they didn't use anything, but dopamine was involved for getting things done. I think that is one documented find, of low dopamine in certain parts of the brain amoung people who seek stimulation or pleasure inducing activies

I see what you are saying, and having worked in addictions, is certainly true. But, it sounds a bit like the whole low-serotonin fad that came out with Prozac. Yes, dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine, all have something to do with addiction, but the exact question is, what. Pump up enough neurotransmitters in our brain and nature will regulate. Neuroscience and psychotropic medication is ancient...we should be MUCH further ahead than we are. We should be looking at how the CBD and Opioid drugs work in mental illness, for it is really, voiceless pain. The intersection between mental illness and physical pain chemically and physically is quite tight.


Someone said, they never fear a thing
Well, I do
And I'm afraid enough for both of us,
For me and you
Time, if nothing else, will do it's worst
So do me a favour, and tell me the good news first
