The Human Parts Open Thread:
Drugs That Are Not Drugs

In 200 words or less, tell us about a place, time, or object that has a drug-like effect on you, though it is not actually a drug. Maybe it’s legal, maybe it’s not. Is this a not-drug your parents would approve of? Do you take this drug often? Once a week, once a minute? Maybe you’re not addicted, but you could be — easily.

Everyone’s got their drug. Even if no one else would recognize it as such.

Share your not-drug as a response below. We’ll use them to post a compilation of non-drugs Human Parts.

Recommended reading from the editors of Human Parts, a Medium publication about humanity.
