I’ve you’ve fallen down in a dark pit and into a hell-hole, then all you can do is start climbing until you get out of there.
Both people who have used drugs for a long time and people who have used it only a few times will suffer side-effects and after-effects of the drug abuse.
Most drugs affect the dopamine center in the brain. Dopamine can also be called “the happy hormone”, because when the dopamine hormone is stimulated it affects our feeling of, joy, comfort and pleasure.
When people use drugs the dopamine levels increases for a short time and it often gives the person a feeling of comfort, relaxation and joy. The drug increases the dopamine level temporarily, but it also destroys the dopamine center at the same time. It’s just like alcohol, it makes you feel good there and then, but it destroys the brain and the body at the same time.
Well if you’ve already used drugs and you’ve already caused damage to the brain center that creates the dopamine hormone, then all you can do is to do your best to increase the dopamine in a natural and healthy way. You cannot rebuild the brain cells that have already been destroyed, but you can increase the effect of those who are still working.
Things that increases the dopamine levels is physical activity, so training and keeping yourself active will help you to improve the dopamine center and the side-effects of drugs. Exercising is the healthiest way to reduce the damage of the drug abuse. Other things you can do to improve your brain health is: to get enough amount of sleep, drink enough water, stress-less, get enough Omega 3, vitamin B and D, and all the other nutrients and vitamins that are beneficial and necessary for a good mental and physical health.
I’ve described this more deeply in my book “Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover”, and I’ve also posted another blog post called “Dopamine, The Natural Happy Hormone” that you should read.
Drugs Opens The Eyes To See The Spiritual World
In the Amazonas many people uses certain drugs to get in touch with the spiritual world and to see things more clearly.
Well other drugs has the same effect as well, it opens people’s eyes to another world and a spiritual world. This can be a fantastic or a horrible experience, depending on the state of your spiritual world and how prepared you are for this experience.
Many people who have opened their eyes to the spiritual world too early and without any preparation or guidance, have suffered terrible effects and consequences because of this. Many people never recover and end up in a deep depression, several suffer with mental problems and anxiety, and many people end up taking suicide.
It’s difficult to see a world you don’t understand, a world that few people around you are seeing, and going through things that few people around you understands.
Those few people who survives and who are able to overcome the drug abuse and the after-effects, are those who diligently studies the word of God and who learns how to fight and overcome the difficult battles in the spiritual world. The Bible says in Genesis :
The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die! For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.
Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings.
Well this may not mean that Adam and Eve took drugs, but we can compare it to taking drugs, having your eyes opened to the spiritual world, and to the battle of good and evil.
Well the Bible is filled with Scriptures about Spiritual Warfare, and how to fight and overcome the difficulties and the darkness in the Spiritual world. And if you learn how to read, study, and follow the Scriptures then it will be easier to deal with the difficult battle in your mind.
Listening to Sermons can be a great way to do this. Joyce Meyer has several sermons, books and podcast on this subject called The Battlefield Of The Mind, which is highly recommended.
I highly recommend you listen to her sermons and that you read her book on the subject. I will post a link to her YouTube Sermons, and I will post a link to my book where I have also written more deeply about all of the things written in this article.
