Ketamine is complicated that attracts people because of its otherworldly reputation. The drug has an aesthetic character because it induces what people term ‘an out of body experience. People use it to access parts of their thought processes that are not on the conscious level, which is efficient if you are looking for something to help you face your worst demons.
The problem with using these kinds of stimulants is that you are in danger of even more depression and suicidal thoughts because you do not know how to manage the new realizations hitting you all at the same time. Ketamine’s dissociative quality affects the body by inhibiting physical movement, eye movement, and anything else requiring movement.
The Addictive Quality Of Ketamine
Ketamine will cause addiction and dependence when you use it for a long time. The euphoric feeling becomes addictive when you begin to enjoy the new thoughts and behaviors affecting coming into your new reality. Many people’s bodies and minds become accustomed to smaller amounts and slowly increase them until they reach a lethal or dangerous level that is too toxic and unstable for their lives.
The Accessibility Of Ketamine
Ketamine is most commonly used by people who want to escape their reality, which means they want something that will make them look at things with a completely different perception.

Many users will find it at parties, retreats in the wilderness, or away from the city and other off-beat situations of life. Other names used to purchase and refer to the drug include K-hole, K, Kit Kat, Kat Valium, etc.
