Drugs are like time travel between stages of life:

Sobriety is adulthood
Benzos make you elderly (I am tired but calm)
Stimulants make you an adolescent (I'm invincible!)
Psychedelics make you a child (check out this bark!)
Alcohol makes you a toddler (but WHYYYYYYYYY)
Dissociatives make you an infant (from the latin infans "unable to speak")
DMT makes you a newborn (WHAT IS ALL THIS)
Opiates put you back in the womb (the warm, barely-conscious embrace)
