      Re: Newbies Nest

      I've got a book recommendation for you, Nesters: https://www.amazon.com/Never-Enough-...a-639118375345
      The author writes from the perspective of a neuroscientist and a former addict of just about every addictive substance she could get her hands on. She explains the biochemistry underlying addiction to each of the types of substances (opiods, benzoes, uppers, alcohol, THC, etc.) in an accessible but accurate way, including why where each acts in the brain yields the differing responses. She also clearly explains why for a person with a particular biochemistry, exposure to the drug that "normalizes" that biochemistry will almost inevitably lead to addiction --- and why that person will almost inevitably not be able to moderate their drug of choice. As I read about all the drugs, it became clear to me why alcohol worked for me (for awhile) and made me grateful I was never exposed to barbituates. I'm afraid I would like them. It also killed any curiosity I had about trying THC. The book isn't all science, though - she makes a strong case for the environments that foster addiction and the changes we need to make as a society.

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Good evening Nesters,

      We had a nice day, sunny & 63 degrees although it is getting chilly now. I move my chicks out to the chicken house (separate quarters from the older hens). When they are big enough to defend themselves then I'll move them in with the rest.

      NS, thanks for the book recommendation, sounds interesting!

      Slo, enjoy your spring break, lucky you. I hope your sister takes good care of herself.

      Hello to Pav, G, Narilly, Byrdie & everyone.

      Ava, how are you doing today?

      Wishing everyone a safe night in the nest!

      Lav

      Just a quick check in to say GO @Slo !!!

      In a stealthy way you have logged nearly 250 days (10 more to go). That is amazing. Keep it up, even in FLA.
