What a fantastic list, that covers just about every single joy imaginable!

I love that first sip of hot tea, feeling it go down...while sitting in a darkened room, maybe a candle lit, while in jammies, early in the morning.

Feeling the purr of a cat as it cuddles up next to you.

Feeling the warmth of the sun on your face, eyes closed, and letting that warmth go to your bones. delicious!

Smelling the surf, hearing the cries of sea gulls, and the roar of the surf. Smelling suntan lotion, feeling the grit of the sand, and warm sun soak through your body...while lying on a beach.

well, these are surely nice things to do, but they aren't even close to a high under a psychedelic drug. I'd call this list : getting happy without drugs, but certainly not high :p
I'd add psychedelic meditation, for a real drug-free high experience :)
