Uppers stimulate the brain and
the nervous system.
How do they work in your body?
When you're awake and rested your body is pretty much in
balance. The energy you've got is usually just what you
need. But sometimes you need more. Like when you're suddenly
scared out of your wits, or faced with an emergency. At
moments like these your brain lets loose with energy
chemicals like adrenaline that give you an instant
surge of alertness, speed, and power. You can do amazing
things and not even be tired! Emergency over? Your
brain shuts off the adrenalin, your body reabsorbs the
left-overs, and you go back to your normal balanced state.
With uppers your brain is fooled into believing
there's an emergency. It releases adrenalin and you get more
energy and feelings of confidence. Problems happen because
really strong uppers (like
cocaine) confuse the brain
so it doesn't shut down adrenalin and reabsorb it. All that
adrenalin keeps circulating through your body giving you a
major case of hyperactivity. People on uppers are very
talkative and jittery. Everything bugs them so they tend to
get into more fights. Plus they're so hyper they're not
interested in eating, and they can't sleep. Uppers also
close down blood vessels while they increase blood pressure.
This can cause blood vessels to burst, and if that happens
in your brain, it can cause a stroke, leaving you paralyzed.
