I was talking to a person I know, who happens to work in the police drug-labs. I was discussing how much I like to code, and how I keep staying up until sun rise. After this, I started listing the varios drawbacks of doing this: the diminishing returns, eyes unfocusing, the way your skin wants to crawl and feel sticky all at once. After about a minute of this, she interrupted me and told me that I was describing some of the symptoms of drug addicts coming down from their high.

To say the least, that got me worried. I don't like drugs, I don't like the way they change me. But I hate to think that despite how much I've tried to avoid then and their effects, I've done worse things to myself. So today I'm going to try and go to sleep at 2200. I wonder what that would feel like.
