I'm afraid people aren't chasing happiness, even if that's what they tell themselves. They are chasing pleasure and feed it with the insatiably hungry dopamine. But happiness needs to be fed with serotonin, which comes from taking care of others, being useful for others than ourselves, and generally, nurturing for our spirit rather than just our belly!
