‘Opposite’ of reason – depends entirely on past experience & personality Bibliography Effects on Emotion The drug triggers the neurotransmitters in the brain to release the maximum amounts of dopamine, (credited for feelings of elation or pleasure), at an instance. The area where the dopamine exits is then blocked.
It may ultimately decrease your ability to sense pleasure.
Cocaine users are at higher risk of extreme mental disorders.
When consumed in large amounts, can make a user paranoid, enormously aggressive and/or delusional.
Panic attacks and insomnia are common for cocaine users. Why Drugs? People do drugs for heightened sense perception and/or altered emotional state. Psychological: Physical/Chemical: Media influences drug usage.
Emotional attachment ensues not only for chemical effects but the way it changes social life, etc and the way one feels about themself. There is often an inverse effect-- emotion leads to drugs and vice versa.
Mood of people coming off of drugs is terrible. Effect on Emotion of Observers Seeing people on drugs can be very alarming, and even frightening. It also can make observers more likely to try drugs themselves.
People get used to being around drugs. Drugs become more normalized. "Bad" things are not considered as bad, leading to faulty judgment and skewed perspectives. We are taking into account both the effects on the individual drug user and the people who are around the user, and are literally perceiving the drugs, (as in seeing). Sense Perception: Mind-altering drugs can influence perception of time, thinking, behavior, and mood. Often abusers of these drugs experience severe depression, anxiety, paranoia, confusion, and terror. Emotional Effects on User: Bonsor, Kevin. "How Marijuana Works." How Stuff Works.
