    Here's a thread to reminisce about moments in every person's life when they feel euphoria and boundless joy without the need of narcotics (or, let's also say sex as well):

    My contributions:

    1. After finishing a college exam you studied your ass of for and think you did well on.

    2. Last day of class or last day before Winter Break (Elementary/High School)

    3. End of the last shift of the week in manual labor job.

    Oh, don't mind me, I'm just high on life.

    I like staying in steam rooms and saunas for a very long time. My current gym as a steam room and the complex I live in has a sauna. I use both of them frequently.

    If I drink at night and get a restful sleep, I feel very euphoric in the morning, almost like a runners high.

    That's another one too, runners high.

    If you go from hot-ass sauna to cold ass shower (or pool) long enough you can come close to being straight up high. Irregular heartbeat, lightheadedness -- the whole nine!

    well, I didn't want to be serious, but yeah. Runner's high. Funny enough, when I haven't run on a scheduled run day, I'm gloooooooooooomy. Like today.

    But I will say this: there's Runner's High, then there's Long Run Contentment, and then there's Track Workout HELL YES Euphoria.

    There was a period of two months during the summer where I stopped taking warm showers and stuck to cold showers only. Granted, it was awful in the mornings initially but after a month I felt *great* after showering.

    If I wasn't such a pussy I would've continued doing that even during the colder months like now. Atm, I end showers with a couple seconds of cold water but that's about it.

    Don't eat for 24 hours. I do that on a regular basis and by the end of a 10-12 hour work day you are high as a kite.

    Seeing loved ones after a period of being separated
    Catching up with old friends
    Sex with the person you love
    I'm fairly competitive so succeeding in competition gets me off (scoring a goal, owning someone at poker, forehand crush to end ping pong match, etc.)
    Adrenaline (? does this count)

    Euphoric as in being completely content and in the moment physically/mentally to the point where nothing else matters

    Straight edger reporting in. I don't know what the non-sober kind feels like...but still.

    - being accepted into business school
    - finding my cat after she was missing for almost a week

    With my life revolving around food, I do this a lot too. Typically if I have a whole week of dinners, I'll just eat dinner and fast for 24 hours.

    Taking a hot bath on a cold night. You big man-babies should try it sometime.

    Bath? What's that? I think you're going to have to post a video of yourself so we can properly learn. Dumb, neanderthal men, and all.

    Body surfing
    1st 100 yards and last 100 yds of a run
    improvising (on) music(al instument) - me, it's piano, usually blues, badly, but still.

    riding motor scooter on a sunny morning - okay, lame, but same feeling of freedom as a bigger bike but less chance of stacking
