This not only makes us feel good, but causes encouraging desires to continue with the activity through repetition. When someone uses a substance, such as opioids or alcohol, they produce even greater levels of dopamine which signals to our brain encouragement of repeating usage. Over time, these increased levels of dopamine released become amplified by the substances themselves and the brain can no longer keep up with the natural production of dopamine to satisfy itself.
