My Theory On Drugs

drug

 

Why do we take recreational drugs?

Here’s what I think:

No matter how old we get, we are children wanting to laugh and draw and write and play and celebrate.  No matter how old we get, we want to express ourselves freely.  No matter how old we get, we instinctively know that all we need to have fun is inside us.

As we get older, we are taught to worry about what other people think.  As we get older, we develop inhibitions and think we need reasons to celebrate.  As we get older, we stop trusting what we instinctively know and suppress our childlike nature.

How painful to suppress a child who wants to laugh and draw and write and play and celebrate. To cover the pain, we get drunk or high.  Then we can laugh and draw and write and play and celebrate and express ourselves freely.  We don’t have to take responsibility for our actions, and worry about what people think, because we can blame the drug that caused our behavior.

That’s what I think.  I have no scientific studies or expert opinions to support my thoughts. My thoughts came as I watched adults spend money on drugs to have the same fun that children have naturally.
