Dopamine Addict Lyrics

Six months clean off the dopamine
Throw my phone through the wall
My friends can't get a hold of me

    I was very curious as to whether this song was about having an actual drug addiction, or if it was a metaphor. I found out from an interview with him that Dopamine is a metaphor for social media and how Alec felt he was addicted to social media and the views, likes, etc.

    On Instagram Alec posted a story about his ADHD diagnosis and how it impacted his life. His brain like any ADHD brain has issues regulating dopamine and thats about the title. Lyrics entry saying that he can't break the habit means that if he breaks only one habit then the rest falls behind and he is unable to sustain his everyday life to the point he's breaking down.

    i thought it was something about mental or emotional health and how he was lost and didn't know how to tell anybody.

    in my opinion I think that Mr. Benjamin had a dopamine addict and he stopped taking dopamine and the song is about what he feels like after quitting? I’m not so sure I just started listening to the song I really like it fyi but that’s just what I think.. tell me if I’m wrong
