Addicted to Dopamine

Hello all,
I am trumpetlyfe98, and I have an interesting and awful addiction. I am addicted to dopamine in many different ways, via cell phone usage, playing instruments, compulsive attention-seeking, compulsive seeking of praise from others, sleeping, masturbating, and thinking violent thoughts.

My parents and therapists do not believe me when I say I have a dopamine addiction, even though when I cannot do any of the aforementioned activities, I get nauseous, chills, an intolerable ...

I'd like to use prescribed drugs of a similar nature, but I don't see any way to explain my situation due to strong bias against "abusers." I'm looking for advice! Please read it in its entirety before assuming I'm a drug advocate!


Are there any ...

How can I help an addict?

Good Afternoon Everyone,

This time she was watching my two year old. His younger brother had to go to the hospital and she offered to watch him. She had been sober for a few weeks, and I honestly thought she was ...

Relapse after almost 3 years

I began to become suicidal again and I decided drinking myself retarded was better, and have been doing so for the past 2 -3 weeks. I guess being drunk is better than being dead. I've stayed away from drugs, so I guess that is good.

my weed addiction story

So I'm sitting at my computer on Day 1 of no weed waiting for an eye appointment, and I figured I'd share my story of how I discovered weed and why it made me do the things it did.

All my life up until my senior year of high school, I was the kid who believed weed was so wrong. I told myself I would never do it (even though I ironically started smoking cigarettes ...
