    I thought you were referring to the stimulant part. Cocaine is derived from the coca plant.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    No, I was the one that said cocaine is a stimulant.

    Well technically, cocaine is an alkaloid based drug, but according to this research, it increases the dopamine level in neurotransmitters that is similar to opioids.

    Opioids and opiates produce their effects by binding with mu-opiate receptors, cocaine produces its effects by preventing the re-update of dopamine.

    They're two totally different drugs.

    This does not support your original claim that cocaine is an opiod.

    WOW! Your post disappeared. I wanted to correct you and say that cocaine is NOT a dopamine inhibitor- quite the opposite, it is a dopmaine reuptake inhibitor which increases absorption of dopamine.

    I already said technically it is an alkaloid-based drug. Please read before commenting.

    Very true, scantily- which means that preventing the reuptake of dopamine- increases dopamine levels similar to opioids.

    If I'm understanding correctly, you're both right. Cocaine blocks dopamine uptake and it accumulates in the synapses of the brain.

    OK, and I'm going to quote this cause it's getting all scientific-y
    As a result of cocaine's actions in the nucleus accumbens (point to the sprinkles of cocaine in the nuc. acc.), there are increased impulses leaving the nucleus accumbens to activate the reward system. Indicate that with continued use of cocaine, the body relies on this drug to maintain rewarding feelings. The person is no longer able to feel the positive reinforcement or pleasurable feelings of natural rewards (food, water, sex).

    It's wording choices. You've obviously delete the posts when you're wrong. I can admit when there was a miscommunication
