What I know so far about drugs (codeine, heroin, etc) is, the first time you take them you will feel better, think sharper, and act better, just like a supercharged engine. But as this goes on a regular basis, it will stop being efficient and causes addiction.
So what I can understand of this, is that our brain can function better but for some unknown reason (to me) it doesn't. However its functionality increases for a period of time after you take a dose of these drugs.
Now I have a few questions about this:
- If our brain can function faster than normal, then why it demands additional drugs to do so?
- Can we inject a controlled dose to brain (not by needle to the brain obviously, I mean pills, tablets, etc) of these drugs to keep the brains functionality at a higher rate?
- When a drug actually charges our brain, is it taking any damage? The same way you overclock a CPU and it might cause damage to it over the time.
PS: I'm asking this on Biology instead of Health since I'm talking about brain's behavior about addiction, not just to confirm whether or not i can use drugs on a regular basis.
