    Pig has a solution that works for him! No need to be defensive.

    Pig has a point. You rarely crash from over sleeping; you can’t overdose on napping.

    But it’s still dangerous to do while you’re driving.

    Pig’s answer is overly simplistic. Many people have difficulties napping or even sleeping due to anxiety. For those people barbiturates and relaxants can help. Additionally, some people take drugs to feel euphoria (which feels better than having no anxiety), to live in an exciting fantasy world (hallucinogens), or simply to treat pain. Falling asleep to feel good suggests that permanent sleep (ie, death) is a cure to life’s ills (which I suppose it is, but that means Pig is borderline supporting suicide)

    What if you have trouble falling asleep due to anxiety and then you have nightmares?

    The trick is to be able to sleep when you’re supposed to. Insomnia is a b*tch.

    And if you want that dizzy high feeling, spin around in the front yard until you fall down (then you can nap there).

    I like napping much better than drugs. It’s legal, healthy and it’s free.

    Two small nap hazards: 1) During the short days of mid-winter, falling asleep in daylight and waking up in pitch darkness really bends the brain. 2) When they happen, “daymares” have a lot more bite than “nightmares”.

    When I was in high school (late 1960s) some of my buddies used to go the the Islington House to get hammered. They called it “getting dizzy at the Izzy”. I thought about this then rode my motorcycle to the park and got on the swings. Got dizzy, felt happy, no cost, no hangover.

    Dr. Andrew Weil in his book The Natural Mind, believes that the desire to alter consciousness periodically is innate and normal . This drive is found in all people and is “vital to us”.

    Cocaine was amazing in how it effects the brain, just seeing or smelling really good Blow made me goosepimpley. The 1980’s were something else.

    Drugs give the illusion of happiness while they destroy your mind, body, and life. Naps have few downsides.
