Hey, guys. So even before I had my cup of instant this morning, I was talking about various videogames I've played that bring up the subject of the importance of family. I had my cup of grog and as the root took effect I was almost on the verge of tears thinking about my own family and the subject in general. A sort of bi-question for you guys: What does kava do for you to augment your ability to connect with family and friends? Does kava make you emotional in a heartfelt, insightful way or in a more negative way? Footnote: "Family" can be interpreted loosely here. Many of us most likely have biological family that we identify with, but others may not have any biological family still living, and still others may have biological family they're estranged from but have friends that fill that niche instead. However you want to interpret your family if you decide to comment in this thread.
