    Maybe you just have a different definition of "feeling better about oneself". My definition of it is "feeling like a better person". Like, feeling more valuable as a person for having done the drug. I fail to see how smoking a joint could possible elicit the feeling that I"m a better person for smoking it. It just doesn't make sense to me.

    There are actually people out that *actually* feel that using some particular drug makes them a better person? They actually go through the thought process that if they use xx drug, they will be a better person for it?

    No wonder they're seeing you, because that's ****ing insane.
    Drugs mess around with your psyche and they make you feel things differently in a euphoric state of mind. Which CAN and occasionally DO make people feel much better than they do without them. I would know I've done several hardcore drugs before, which I am not very proud of.
    It's not rape if you scream "SURPRISE" first.

    You are saying that the captain's statement is insane but you wind up sounding like you are insane because you can not comprehend that there are a lot more realms to the issues of mental health than your mind can absorb without exploding into anger.

    Feel better? Well **** yeah they make you feel good. That's the whole damn point of using them. But feel better ABOUT yourself? How? Do people actually take drugs thinking that they will be better people for it? Is that seriously what you guys are suggesting, or do we have different definitions of "feeling better about oneself"?

    I asked a specific question, do you have an answer to it? Or are you just going to type at me and try to make my mind "explode into anger" (whatever that means)

    There's a verse in that song:
    Engaged in crime I grasp my throat
    Enraged my mind starts to smoke
    Enforce a mental overload
    Angry again, angry again, angry ow
    That I randomly remembered, and applied to the bolded part somehow.

    So I posted it.

    And, personally, I like Megadeth to some extent.

    But, then, I am considered odd by many.

    Well, to be fair, I don't like ALL metal.

    And I tend to play it at a lower volume than some people think is reasonable.

    But meh.

    Feeling better about yourself, to me, represents feeling like a better person, not necessarily for having done the drug, but for the effects that the drug has on the person, usually serotonin, but sometimes dopamine, opioid receptors, or other things. These effects certainly can make someone feel like they are better people (grandiosity). I've seen this tons of times and often hear people wanting this effect... feeling better about themselves. Very common effect.

    There are actually people out that *actually* feel that using some particular drug makes them a better person? They actually go through the thought process that if they use xx drug, they will be a better person for it?
    No, now you are changing the issue. It is not about believing that you are a better person because the drug makes you a better person. It's about feeling better about yourself because the drug alters brain chemistry, making you feel better about yourself.

    No wonder they're seeing you, because that's ****ing insane.
    It's not insanity. It's precisely what drugs/alcohol do.
