Psychedelics inhibit your basic regulation network, so your brain can color outside the lines more, and use information as a novelty more than an obligation. This can interrupt obsessions, depression and addiction, as well as reducing anxiety and learned damage. Physical addiction is impossible, but people can be tempted to try again after effects have settled. Stopping default mode network is like resetting an NES. Anti depressants work on default mode network when taken properly percribed.
Coccaine makes you feel motivated and in control of yourself, but you're not in control of yourself, and you need more and more to stay happily motivated. Scary addictive. When you start to come down you feel really sad and unmotivated, and convince yourself that you need to redose to get your motivation back.
Truth? Psychedelics are way more useful than stimulants. Stimulants are just easy to sell and wildly understood. in the end they just lower your baseline with tiny psychedelic properties. Beer and all the popular drugs are dumb addictive phychostimulants, beer is just tolorable for being cheap drinking water with carbs and vitamins.
I love learning this. I want to learn to treatments addiction, pychopathy, depression, ocd, phobias. Phychedelics and anti depressants are amazing but misunderstood.
