Love and drugs
Love can make people do strange things, but it can do even stranger things to your brain. Lucy Brown, a professor in the department of neurology and neuroscience at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, found that people’s brains were flooded with dopamine — a neurotransmitter that affects pleasure and motivation — when they were shown photographs of their lovers. As a result, love seems to trigger the same kind of euphoric effects achieved by certain drugs, including cocaine.

Love is pretty addictive, too.
