...drugs produce a feeling of euphoria by overstimulating the brain’s reward system through a flood of the neurotransmitter dopamine. However, not all drugs do this in exactly the same way, which is why some drugs are more addictive than others. The addictiveness of a drug depends on a variety of factors, including its mechanism of action in the brain, how quickly it arrives in the brain, and the severity of withdrawal symptoms when the drug is stopped.
