A highly expensive and addictive drug, Cernadine provides a hit that temporarily creates sensations of emotional lassitude and heightened confidence. It is taken as a mild stimulant and euphoric. Unfortunately, the symptoms of coming down include heightened anxiety and lowered self-esteem, which tends to quickly get the user on a treadmill of taking the drug.
While it is legal (at least on the planet Aurore), Cernadine is a dangerous substance to all but the strongest willed. Even with the assistance of a God, overcoming addiction to it is far from easy.
