Drugs Destroy Creativity

A common falsehood about drugs is that they “help a person become more creative.” But in reality, this is not the case. The fact is, drugs destroy creativity. This is due to the effects drugs and toxins have on a person’s emotional response to life. There is a scale of emotions one can observe, measuring how alive a person is— from enthusiasm at the top to apathy at the bottom. People move up and down on this scale as they go through life. Someone who is sad might use drugs seeking a false sense of happiness. But it does not work. Cocaine, for instance, lifts a person into a false cheerfulness, but when the drug wears off, he or she crashes even lower than before. As he takes more of the drug, trying to regain that cheerful “high,” each time he feels the effect less, and the emotional plunge afterwards takes him lower and lower. This makes him less and less able to confront and deal with living, until finally the drug has completely destroyed his interest in life, and with it, his desire to create.
