Drugs and Dating
The start of a relationship is usually thrilling, exciting and fun. It is coupled with a rush that quickens one’s pulse rate. The deeper we dive into relationships, the more we loose this rare kind of high. As a result, many couples are looking for avenues of spicing up their relationships to maintain this high. Many are turning to drugs and dating. But do drugs and dating really work?
Relationship intimacy and thrill may go hand in hand but looking for the excitement in drugs could be a potential disaster. The problem with most couples today is that they are all about the moment: they never think of the future repercussions of their actions. So, what makes drugs and dating such a bad idea?
One Addiction Multiplied by Two
Love is a powerful drug; it evokes a sense of euphoria in us. Falling in love brings about an elation of happiness, joy, excitement and well being. It is easy to get hooked on this high which is pretty much okay. However, the feelings of euphoria never last forever. And that is when we choose to spice up things a little bit. “Why not try a bit of meth, coke, or marijuana. James and Cara tried it, and their relationship has been a roller coaster ride ever since.”
It might seem exciting and fun in the beginning but what you don’t realize is that we all run the risk of turning into drug addicts. The addiction to drugs is way stronger than that of the ‘love euphoria.’ A drug addict will always choose drugs over love. As a matter of fact, there is no freedom of choice when it comes to drug addiction. That behavior is automatic and reflexive.
Drugs and Love
There is only one relationship that counts to a drug addict and that is the partnership with their drugs. Before you grab that coke or meth in the name of bonding or whatever you call it, think twice. Do you really want to end up in a dysfunctional relationship all because of drug addiction? If the answer is no, then there is no way you should mix drugs with love.
If you looking to spice things up a little bit, there are other avenues you might explore instead of turning to drugs. These include:
1. Engaging in an activity that will scare the living ‘hell’ out of you both. There is a thrill that comes from engaging in adrenalin pumping activities. Why not try sky diving or bungee jumping? Imagine getting a rush of being scared and overcoming it together with your partner. What a great way to bond!
2.You can also take a spontaneous trip somewhere.
There are numerous ways in which you can spice up your relationship other than drugs. It all depends on your taste and preference.
Drugs plus dating equals disaster. Don’t try it!
