Mixing Cocaine or Meth with Sex and Porn

This entry was posted in Daily Inspiration and tagged , , on

Those who live with the greatest intensity often take the least interest in life.

Cocaine and methamphetamine, no matter how they are ingested, rapidly alter brain chemistry, inducing feelings of euphoria and control. A common myth about these drugs is that they’re not addictive because sudden abstinence does not precipitate the physical withdrawal symptoms seen with certain other drugs (opiates and alcohol, for instance). However, as more than one user has asked, “If cocaine and meth are not addictive, then why can’t I stop?” Relapse rates among people attempting to recover from cocaine and meth addiction are astronomical—as high as 94%. And when cocaine and meth are paired with sex or porn addiction, those rates are even higher.

Task for Today
Think about ways in which your substance use pairs with your sexual behavior.
