Can wrong perception bring happniness?

Nick Drake could not sleep and he felt unhappy. He took some anti-depressants. And ate some corn flakes. Then he went back to his bed and collapsed in a deep sleep. He had found the relief and happiness which he was looking for. But he never woke up.

He had taken too many pills in his attempt to calm his mind. He thought that he had found happiness - but it was fleeting and it ended up killing him.

We take many twists and turns in this life. Sometimes misunderstanding can yield us happiness. But can it be long lasting? Can it be called real happiness. Or is it the temporary illusion of happiness? which is not happiness at all. Surely that is the best wrong perception can yield us. We experience all the feelings that we associate with happiness. But a mask is not a face and similarly an illusion is not the real.
