Love is the Drug

Posted by glasscastle on November 24th, 2003

Love
could be as addictive as cocaine or speed, scientists have said.

According to Dr John Marsden, head of the National Addiction Centre at
the Maudsley Hospital in London, when you are attracted to someone your
brain releases the drug dopamine, giving the same reaction that taking
cocaine or speed would create.

"
Attraction and lust really is like a drug. It leaves you just wanting more," he
said.However like the drugs – the first flush of love is temporary.

"Scientific research reveals the first flush of love lasts only between
three and seven years," he added.
