While divorce rates are constantly spiking up, couples are trying all sorts of things to save their marriage. But can taking drugs really save your marriage? A couple just tried MDMA as a form of therapy, and apparently, it worked!
“My husband started sharing with me for the first time all these thoughts and emotions,” an anonymous MDMA user Ree had said. “It was him without the walls,” she added.
So, let’s dig deeper into the world of marriage counselling and the use of psychedelics.
Why are people in failing marriages trying drugs?
Recent studies have revealed that MDMA( commonly known as Molly or Ecstacy), combined with talk therapy, can bring relief to those who suffer from PTSD.
MDMA is also known to induce feelings of empathy, trust and compassion, which explains why some couples have resorted to psychedelics when it comes to resolving their differences in marriage and relationships.
But does that mean you can start tripping on ecstasy with your partner? Absolutely not!
The Downsides of unregulated MDMA usage
While your intentions of taking ecstasy may vary from those in Rave Parties, unregulated consumption of this illegal drug is still considered substance abuse and comes with more than one danger. And that excludes the possibility of being imprisoned upon being caught!
Let’s look at some of the most alarming issues you are facing:
- Poorly guided MDMA sessions or dosage can lead to ‘bad trips’, reckless behaviour, panic attacks and more.
- Physical effects also include hypertension, unintentional jaw clenching, racing heart, nausea, hot flashes etc.
- Prolonged usage can cause damage to nerve cells in the brain containing serotonin( a compound that regulates sleep, pain, appetite, mood etc.).
Is it a NO-ZONE, then?
While researchers and medical experts are vigorously trying to find a legal way to help couples by integrating psychedelics into therapy, it is not a good idea to go for it just yet, even if your therapist suggests!
After all, the well-being of someone you love should always come first than being together at the cost of health, whether mental or physical.
