I Don't Get Valuable Insights From This

  repeated oral Kratom


I used kratom for about 12 months in total, divided into two periods. First time I used it for about 10 months some 4 years ago, and now it's been 2 months since I'm on it. I tried multiple strains, but settled on Maeng Da and Green Maley. The plant is a good way to enhance my mood, but it has an artificial feeling to it. It doesn't facilitate any kind of useful thought, so I don't get valuable insights from this. It's relaxing, and can make me lazier than weed. Because the uplifting sensation feels artificial, I might get some guilt associated with taking kratom too often and for too long, just like the one I get from watching porn. There is also the issue of addtictiveness. It's not as bad as real opioids, but I do get much more easily irritated after I stop using it. If I only take it occasionally, I avoid many of these issues. My experience is that I'm not more interesting to other people when I'm on kratom, but quite the contrary. The bottom line I guess would be that kratom is one of those selfish pleasure inducing drugs.
