low dopamine linked to addiction

Posted by rjlockhart37 on November 29, 2019, at 16:06:19

i was reading some articles, about addiction and dopamine. I read a certain part that addicts, they have a low dopamine part, and to make up for that they use ... you know stimulants, nicotine, dopamine releasers, gambling, opiates, i read throughly that seeking a dopamine increase. That non-addict persons have stable flow of DA in the nerve synapse, and people with low DA seek things to stimulate it. Personally smoking, nicotine i don't smoke anymore, i vape, but it's like i have have nicotine to release dopamine, if im not on any type of releaser, im depressed and feel emotionally flat, looking for something to get me out of it. But that's what i read in addiction, there's seeking dopamine release for pleasure or euphoria to make uop for the lack of it. There's some people who don't take any medicines, nothing, no dopamine releases, like napoleon in history, they had a full will power to do things, and were full of charge, they didn't use anything, but dopamine was involved for getting things done. I think that is one documented find, of low dopamine in certain parts of the brain amoung people who seek stimulation or pleasure inducing activies
