There are two types of people. The first type is an individual who takes an opioid and gets tired, sleepy, and feels spaced out.
These people rarely get addicted to opioids.
And this makes sense.
If you take an opioid painkiller and it makes you feel foggy, tired, and unable to think clearly, why would you ever want to use it unless you actually needed it for legitimate physical pain?
The second type of individual, however, has a very different reaction to opioids.
When they take an opioid, it might provide a powerful array of welcomed effects.
Common effects this type of person get from opioids are:
- Energy (and lots of it)
- Euphoria (and lots of it)
- Confidence (and lots of it)
- Motivation (and lots of it)
- Mental Clarity (and lots of it)
- Creativity (and lots of it)
- Feelings of Love & Connection (in high amounts)
- Feelings of Safety (in high amounts)
- Feelings of Warmth and Comfort (in high amounts)
- Increased Empathy, Love, & Positive Regard for Others
- Ability to Last Much Longer in Bed (a huge plus for men with Premature Ejaculation issues)
- Increased Motivation to Complete Goals or Tasks
- Feeling ‘Wholeness’ (perhaps for the first time in their life)
Basically, opioids create such numerous and positive benefits for the second type of individual that a person feels like they have ‘Superpowers’.
I commonly hear from coaching clients and other members of my audience that opioids make them feel like Superman or Superwoman.
Here are common statements I hear or read:
- “Opioids give me the energy I need to get shit done”
- “Opioids make me way more motivated and creative in growing my business”
- “Opioids make me a total badass at my phone sales job”
- “Opioids give me the energy that I had when I was a kid”
- “Opioids make me feel like I’ve always wanted to feel”
- “Opioids make me a better husband, a better lover, a better friend, better at my job, and just better at life in general”
Let’s review for a moment…
So, we have two types of individuals.
The first type receives the normal effects that opioids cause.
Opioids are central nervous system (CNS) depressants, so this first type of person gets tired.
The second type of individual, however, has a completely opposite reaction.
Opioids give them energy… and lots of it.
But it doesn’t end there.
Opioids also seem to unlock a hidden reservoir of latent superpowers in the person.
And it’s these individuals that are almost always the ones who get addicted.
Humans have a natural proclivity to avoid pain and to gain pleasure.
So it makes sense that the individuals who get superpowers from using opioids would have more of a tendency to use them often, even if they’re not feeling any physical pain.
Whereas the people who get tired and spaced out from opioids might not see the point in taking painkillers other than to relieve physical pain.
Do you get superpowers from opioids?
