In this video Dr Sadaqat Ali shares the fact that the type of love we do with the celebrities is because of a certain quality that he/she posses’. However if we look into the neurological or biological love it is due to hormones and neurotransmitters. In this process the dopamine level rises up making the person feel good. Interestingly the biological changes that takes place during the love process is exactly the same as in drug addiction, addictive behaviours, screen addiction, gambling and many alike while giving the same level of rise in the dopamine levels.
The high rise in the dopamine levels in brain results in addictive behaviours which generates unmanageability in life. When the process of breakup takes place the very natural replacement at this very special instance is to fall prey to the vicious cycle of drug addiction. The most appropriate step at this stage is to ask for help by contacting a counselor. Dr Sadaqat indicates that when you opt for love than don’t be possessive.
