Dopamine is the chemical that mediates pleasure in the brain. It is released during pleasurable situations and stimulates one to seek out the pleasurable activity or occupation. Dopamine plays a part in controlling the movements a person makes, as well as their emotional responses. The right balance of dopamine is vital for both physical and mental well-being.

Now let me explain to you that how it works .

Consider this: your brain rewards you with the release of a neurotransmitter called dopamine for anything that will increase the likelihood of you surviving, that's why you love watching porn or having sex with your partner, the thing is Dopamine doesn’t know what’s good for us and what isn’t.

Keep a piece of burger in front of you and your vegetable. I'm willing to bet that you will pick the burger. It isn't bad to pick the piece of burger once, but if you pick it again, then your brain will start releasing dopamine and you will be craving for that thing again and again until you develop an urge for it. Then you will become addicted to it and it will not be easy to live without it. This is the reason why people became drug addicts, alcoholics, Junk food addicted. Dopamine doesn’t know that eating a lot of burgers is harmful to our health it only sees the potential of pleasure.

That is the reason why people call it the chemical of want and desire

Dopamine is the main reason why drug addicts can even trade their blood or can put their whole life apart just to get that one hit, again and again, the same thing applies to alcoholic people also the reality is today every single company is producing such things and software which produce dopamine so that you will stay connected to it.

Have you ever wondered why you watched reels continuously for an hour or just played a video game constantly for seven or eight hours? because it increases your desire video games have different levels with different challenges to face and you scroll every video on Tiktok just to get something more interesting, we often search for that perfect Youtube video to watch while eating as we have trained our brain in search for entertainment every time.

Youth and the youngsters are the main targets of these companies because they don’t have any jobs usually and they can be easily influenced, so try to get detoxed before it is too late you need to understand Dopamine is killing you day by day.

Dopamine detox

Step 1 - You should make a list of the activities you normally engage in daily and how much time you spend doing them, including the food and beverages you consume every day and the substances you use on a regular basis, such as alcohol, drugs, and tobacco.
