Adrenaline Addiction

“Adrenaline addiction is very common. Type-A personalities become addicted to their excessive activity by the stimulation and arousal of adrenaline. People who are constantly angry, fearful, guilty, or worrisome arouse their adrenaline hormone even though they may sit around doing nothing else. People who are excessive in their participation in jogging, exercise, bodybuilding, aerobics, sports, skiing, mountain climbing, car racing or flying…airplanes become addicted because of the adrenaline rush from their activity. They describe the ‘rush’ they get from their activity and feel depressed when they can’t participate for some unexpected reason.”

    ummm. Wow. That’s one crazy source you’ve found there Adam.

    It makes me a little worried. They seem sane and reasonably accurate in the depiction of adrenalin geeks…so does that mean they are also right about all that other stuff? And I can never eat a carb again for fear of death?

    I’m scared.

  2. Adam says:

    HAHAHAHA, nah, most of it is junk, just took that part out.

    Besides, their source for why carbs are bad is “Top Ten Nutritional Myths, Distortions, and Lies That Will Destroy Your Heath.”

    Chances are, this info probably isn’t even true, just sounded so… Scientifically correct :P

    I disagree… the adrenaline goes away once you’ve been doing it awhile. That’s when you separate the skydiver from the tourists. So, you might ask why a skydiver jumps when there is no rush? Some people just keep pushing the envelope to reignite that feeling, others come to find the sky relaxing and peaceful… a true home. I like to call it “altitude sickness”, that feeling you get when you spend more than a week at ground level. That insatiable desire to fly in the truest sense.

    I still get a rush, but it’s the rush of having done something successfully…
    I do however still feel the adrenaline pumping through my veins, but that’s cause I’m always pushing my limits…
    I agree though, being in the sky is peaceful
