Most of the time it's not chasing "adrenaline" per say because many things that are supposed to be adrenaline rushes don't have that effect if you know it's coming.

For me I just end up doing stuff. It almost seems quite rational and safe at the time although picking apart later I can see the flaws in my thinking and the severity of over confidence.

When I was a teen I used to want to do every job I'd see and want to just have a go because it looked fun. One time I saw a guy park his truck and left it running in a loading zone so I got in and took it around the block for a joy ride and making "deliveries" on behalf of the company to unsuspecting businesses that never asked for a pallet of bread. Never grew out of wanting to try everything but I learned if you ask nicely a lot of people will let you have a go and I didn't get into trouble. They'd even pay you!

I still have to resist taking things I see on the street though. It's like my head has to be told repeatedly that that large coil of copper wire is NOT rubbish. That just because the back of a van is open it is not an open invitation to help myself to the gifts that present themselves to me.

You've got a point there because I never would think about things being an adrenaline rush when I was younger but I was just having a blast. I'd do things like jumping off high roofs, a bridge one time just for the fun of it. Getting into fights with people twice my size was another one. Breaking into shopping centres in the middle of the night (in the 80's and early 90s security wasn't up to much), joy riding in stollen cars, shoplifting, and alsorts of things. I'm pretty sure all these things did give me an adrenaline rush but I didn't do them with that in mind although I did get a buzz out of it...I'm too old for all of that now but a lot of it made me get banned from the entire city centre at one point as a condition of bail. I would break my bale conditions all the time because this was even more of a daring buzz for me. I was always sober and very rarely took drugs during these times so I can look back with fondness.


I still do have to beat the urge to steal because I am very light fingered and if I see something, anything I do feel that its mine for the taking. I've stole hammers, knives, tools from builing sites. Money from friends and family. Clothes and shoes from shops. Sometimes for survival but sometimes just for the kick and for momentums as well.

These days the adrenaline comes when I'm about to have confrontation with someone. I'm not to keen on it to be honest because I try and be civilised nower days so the confrontation can't go as far as I'd like it to and so I'm left pumped full of this chemical and I have to then do about two hours worth of HIIT to take the edge off.

Maybe I should start smoking weed or something.

No. Someone tells me that I'll question shlt/get them to explain. I'm going to get some control, I don't jump into shlt with someone without knowing their intentions and if I'm being played/set up. I do shlt at my pace, not yours, so settle down.

Obviously I never did this. Hypothetically, if you got an excavator key set on ebay for like 50 bucks that comes with all the keys and the locks on the front can easily be shimmed. Just drive in at 2 in the morning, use their own excavator to load up rolls of copper wires and drive off. On big government projects, it's all insured anyway. If they have security, usually desperate middle easterns on minimum wage. A bag of coke makes them go away. Some sites have expensive CCTV cameras so some guys take those too. Those little trench rollers go for twenty grand a pop and you can fit like six of them on the back of a tipper. All just hypothetical imagination obviously.
