Synthetic herbal drugs and suicide overdose
What does it really mean when an addict says it’s to clear their head?
What is the effect of substances that seem to prevent certain thoughts from entering? What does it mean for someone to engage in harmful behavior through substance abuse?
How does self-loathing work into these experiences and the feeling of dying? What happens in the brain, to continue, not to stop until the overdose?
Why psychoactive drugs [plant based or synthetic] meet certain needs of the mind, but support dependencies?
What do drug users know or understand about brain function, which means informed use? What instructions do these drugs follow, to say that this is where the thoughts are and they could go next? What do drugs suppress and what do they add?
Many people are familiar with dopamine. Some people are familiar with serotonin. But most people perhaps understand that there is an effect on the alteration of the mind, essentially on the thoughts, when they think of certain things or forget others.
But how does thought work in the brain, where does it start from? Where is the thought going? How do drugs affect thoughts?
In neuroscience there are answers about neurons, molecules, and neuroimaging activity displays, but simply put in psychiatry, psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and the like, there is no clarity of transport of thought, as with the brain.
Rehabilitation is good, intervention methods are good, but the minimum that a drug addict must know is how does a drug act on his thoughts? If this is known, what else could have this effect without the harm of a drug? How to reason situations differently, to avoid seeing drugs as the way? What’s the use of getting high for fun or recreation, when it’s mostly conventional?
The mind is thought and memory. Drugs impair thoughts and memory. Thoughts have two points of emergence in the brain, from sensory integration and memory areas.
All internal and external stimuli [or sensory inputs] go to two stations of the brain, smell goes to the olfactory bulb, all the other senses go to the thalamus. It is from these points that they are transmitted to the cortex for interpretation.
Before relay, as postulated, they fit into a uniform unity, which is thought or a form of thought. Thus, everything in the external world becomes a thought version of memory and it is this thought version that becomes responsible for what is used to relate to the world: the car in thought, the house, the book , people, friends, all exist as thoughts for the mind, since they were not physically placed there.
Interpretation after the relay includes knowledge, feeling and reaction. Knowing is memory, that’s where there are clusters of similarities for stores in the smallest of units. Drugs affect memory groups.
There are drugs that remove a reserve from the fear group, or some from the shame group, or some from the feeling of something else group. It is also the main group at the same time which means to crave meaning. This is also what it means to ignore evil, or to carry on, or not to care.
It is after the contents of the store – in the smallest drug unit – have left the memory that it travels to its destination to feel the effects before the reaction.
All drugs, injected, inhaled, ingested or otherwise, are sensory inputs. They are all integrated into a uniform unit, before most of them go into memory. It is in the memory – where all experiences have clusters – that they have the greatest effect.
Feeling destinations also matter for some who are not dopamine depleted.
Showing how thought travels through the brain and how it functions from memory can be helpful against suicide, overdose, lingering damage and more.
Drugs affect thinking and memory, that is when other things follow, so for addicts to know, being able to see what happened before and after could be a game-changer to stay clean.
