But the addiction caused by the chillies is different than the one produced
by chocolate and caffeine. Chocolate and caffeine are actual narcotics
which have a direct effect on the metabolism of the body. The sensation of
the hot chillies is different however. The hot and spicy sensation causes
the body to release endorphins and thus cause a high. Similar to the
gambling addiction. Gambling and the thrill associated with it causes an
endorphin release and thus a dependency on the Gambling to create a high.
Chocolate and chillies can be addictive, but in different ways. Chillies
are NOT a narcotic.

But you are cheap drunk cause you are small Jase. A smaller vessel holds
less before it over-flows. And you and your bloody sugar rushes. Never
take this one sweet-shopping with you folks. He'll end up bouncing off the
walls for days.....
