What's Your Drug of Choice?

I reached a new kind of high. With so many different drugs in my system, talking philosophy all night with intelligent friends, blocking out the world...
... and then coming down by smoking Marijuana for about 4 hours...
I started really thinking about shit.
The greatest cause of downfall for almost every human being is the constant pursuit of instant pleasures.
Some people get this from drugs, some people get it from sex, some people get it from religion, some people fucking get it from horrible reality tv shows, or music, or even "love"
All of those things can be fine and good, but when someone overdoes anything in life, when something gets to the point of having control over you, no matter what it is, then failure is truly the only reasonable ultimate outcome.
When you're happy, you're high. it's simple as that. Every single time you are absolutely shit face grin happy... it's just because of a certain chemical combination in the brain. What drugs do is instantly set your brain to a certain chemical state that induces happiness.
Sex, being in love, prayer and meditation, ect all do the same thing. If you're feeling good... you're high.
... and there is nothing wrong with that. It's only when you let one thing become the main source of your happiness that you wind up in trouble.
For example, when you are in a relationship and your girlfriend or boyfriend becomes your entire world... they become the single biggest source of happiness in your life...
Once something happens to end that... what is the result? You go into deep withdrawls. What people call being "heart broken" is really just having withdrawls from something that makes you high.
It's the same reason a lot of ultra religious people block out any views besides what they know. They don't want to lose their drug of choice.
Ever study various famous serial killers? Why do they kill? For the most part... they do it cause it gets them high.
Pleasure is good
Discipline is good...
too much of either is what ends up making an individual miserable.
A lot of Eastern Asian religions are correct. Balance = True happiness.
I'm not even sure if this will make sense to anyone.
Honestly, I don't really give a fuck
