How Drugs Affect the Mind and Destroy Creativity

How do drugs work?
Drugs are, in essence, poisons. Their effect depends on the dose. A small amount is acting as a stimulant (increases activity). A bigger amount has a calming effect (inhibits). An even larger amount acts as a poison and can kill.
This is true for any drug. It’s just that everyone has its own dosage, whether it’s coffee, arsenic, or methamphetamine.
Drugs block off all sensations, both pleasant and undesirable. And, although drugs can have short-term desired result in cases where there is the need to cope with the pain, they wipe out the ability and alertness of the mind.
Each person has a choice: to be dead and do drugs or to stay alive without them.
Drugs affect the mind
When a person thinks about something, he sees a picture in the mind. These mental image pictures are easy to be seen. Close your eyes and think about a cat and you’ll see a cat. Every second the human mind “photographs” a set of images and stores them in order to solve various problems in life.
Usually when a person remembers something, his mind works very quickly, and the information immediately comes to him from the mental image pictures. But drugs do these mental images muddy and unclear, and create gaps or failures. When a person tries to extract information, he just can’t do this. Drugs make people take things slowly, or feel stupid and this leads to the fact that they suffer setbacks in life. When there are more and more failures, life becomes more difficult, the person tends to take more drugs in an attempt to cope with the problems.
This can lead to the fact that the addict will perceive as distorted what is happening around him. As a result, he may start to behave very strange and unreasonable. He may even start a rampage.
Drugs destroy creativity
One of the myths about drugs says that drugs stimulate creativity. However, the truth is exactly the opposite.
A person is experiencing different emotional states. There is a whole range of such states, on top of that is enthusiasm, and at the bottom – apathy. Throughout his life, people move up and down this scale.
Those who are sad may take drugs to get an apparent feeling of happiness. However, this method does not work. Cocaine gives a person a false sense of joy. But when the action of the drug stops, the person is falling even lower than he was before. And every time, the emotional fall is lower and lower. In the end, the drugs will destroy completely all the creative abilities of the person.
Remains of drug accumulate in fatty tissues of the body
One of the discoveries of L. Ron Hubbard, which was confirmed by scientific studies, consists in the fact that drug residues and other toxins are trapped in the fatty tissues of the body and remain there even after many years of their admission. These residues may continue to adversely affect a person long after the action of the drug ceased.
These deposits of drugs may reduce the perception, cause fatigue, confusion of thoughts and other reactions. All of this prevents a person to achieve spiritual enlightenment and increase their capacity.
Realizing that the biochemical nature of this problem must be solved before a person can gain long-term spiritual achievements, Mr. Hubbard developed a program of “cleansing”, which independent researchers consider as the most safe, effective and unique procedure for the neutralization of toxic substances in the body.
Designed to address the biochemical obstacles to spiritual improvement, the program “Cleansing” is a carefully designed system that includes exercise, nutrition and sauna. This system allows you to drive out drug residues and other toxins from the adipose tissue, which makes it possible to remove them from the body. A person undergoing this program is carefully monitored by specially trained staff and physicians, which ensures accurate transmission of the program in all its aspects and achieving the desired beneficial results.
This program is described in the book by L. Ron Hubbard’s “Clear body, clear mind.”
“I started using drugs because of my inability to face problems and communicate with those around me. That’s the way it was, and I felt that way. I also felt that drugs can not hurt me, and I can restrain myself at any time. But it was not the case. For an inveterate drug addict with 12 years of experience, which could manipulate anyone, to find a solution was just a miracle. Since then it has passed about five years. I got married and I help other people to get free from addiction. And I met so many wonderful and caring people, that every morning I feel incredibly glad that I can say to myself: I am free from drugs. ” – Francesca.
“While I was taking drugs, I always thought that I had everything under control and life is good. But it turned out that I have destroyed all that I built in my life and for which I fought. I broke off with all my friends who did not use drugs, moved away from the family. So, among my friends there were only those who did drugs. Every day of my life was devoted to only one thing: I was thinking how to get money for the next dose. I’ve done everything possible to fall greedily to amphetamines – nothing else in my life existed. ” – Pascal.
