The Chemistry of Love

Do you remember those old anti-drug commercials from the 80’s??

 

I remember them.  Don’t know if they’re the reason I didn’t do drugs, or if it was because I was smart enough to know that if I tried drugs, I would probably take it to the extreme, like I did with everything else, so I didn’t even go there.  But, love?  I have tried that numerous times, and according to Helen Fisher, love is pretty much like a drug.  When you fall in love, or lust, it gets all those sweet, addictive, feel-good chemicals flowing in your brain–dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin.  Consequently, when those chemicals start flowing, all kinds of other starts happening–you have tons of energy, you can’t eat, you can’t sleep, you think about the object of your desire constantly.  It’s like you’re walking around on a cloud, and everything seems so wonderful.  The sun shines brighter, the air smells sweeter.

Sounds good, doesn’t it?  Why wouldn’t you want to be in love?  It’s a huge rush, and I’m like a junkie looking for a fix.  I love being in love.  Here’s your brain. . .here’s your brain on love. . . any questions?

  1. They really need to bring that commercial back!:) Love IS the most addictive drug out there, for non real drug users.

  2. I alo love the old anti-smoking campaigns… there is one with a chick at an arcade who stubs out a smoke on a piece of pizza “Don’t be a DRAGON LADY!”

    • hahaha. . .I guess I used to be a Dragon Lady then!! I quit smoking 2 years ago on the Great American Smokeout! So glad to see you here and hope you enjoy perusing my hack writing. I absolutely love your blog!
