You say it's love, it is poison
Ecstasy and cocaine are sometimes called love-drugs because of the effect they have on an intoxinated person — they make you laugh and experience emotional high that can be mistaken with love, infatuation etc. In fact, that’s just temporary feelings triggered by the chemicals. Once the drug wears off it all comes back to normal. Or worse — you might feel depressed because you miss the sort of happiness you experience after taking coke or ecstasy, and the only way to feel that is to take another pill of that poison.
