    Default Oxytocin induces Extroverted traits, better than Alcohol

    http://dvice.com/archives/2012/01/oxytocin-helps.php

    'Alcohol has long been revered for its power to get pretty anyone, after enough, to dance the "Macarena." It turns out that the hormone oxytocin might do the same thing — help people feel more extroverted — without the problems associated with alcohol, such as drunk driving, physiological damage and ordering pizza at 3 A.M.

    In a study authored by Christopher Cardoso, participants inhaled either a placebo or the hormone oxytocin, which is the "bonding hormone" that sees a spike in women after childbirth. It is thought to help mothers bond with their children, but the study shows it also makes people feel more extroverted.

    Again, it makes people feel more extroverted; it doesn't necessarily make them more extroverted. It's a perception-changing hormone, but that difference in perception can obviously lead to someone acting differently.'

    alcohol makes me want to cry.

    i usually drink some then go hang out with all the other criers in the kitchen at parties. usually only girls...very few guys. i never actually cry, mind you, but im saddened. i dont want to dance at all when drinking.

    the girls usually spill their hearts out lol...mostly about how life is hard...

    perhaps oxycotin would make me feel what others do while drinking...though im becoming wary of any drug induced state...

    I like that too, but it mostly makes me very relaxed.

    I don't tend to cry or dance. But I'm normally on the giggler's couch with the giggly drunks.

    Yes, it has anxiety and fear relieving effect, its actually being studied if it could be used as a drug for social anxiety. Basically it makes you more at ease with your surroundings, helps on strenghtening trust and bond between people. The E and oxytosin thing is quite old news, its not something that turned out in this study, this just validated it more with the study.

    But the problem with this is that(at least in some countries), you cant get oxytosin without prescription and its pretty much only used to trigger labor in cases where the baby refuses to come out fast enough.

    But you can get it from your brains also, its released on sex(and pleasant touch in general, like massage, hugginh, kissing), when breast feeding a baby(milk comes out better) and when giving birth.

    I wonder if oxytocin is why I love hugs and physical touch so much? I often remark that I could never be addicted to a substance because I'm addicted to physical touch, (so perhaps I am indeed addicted to a substance.)

    I don't drink alcohol often but the only sensation I've reliably felt after drinking is intense hunger!
