How We Get Addicted
Time Magazine: Thursday, Jul. 05, 2007 By MICHAEL D. LEMONICK
From The text:
“Addictions,” says Joseph Frascella, director of the division of clinical neuroscience at the National Institute on Drug Abuse ( NIDA), “are repetitive behaviors in the face of negative consequences, the desire to continue something you know is bad for you.”
This dude should have consulted weirdharold when writing this definition of an addict.
I am going to say this about the article in Time Magazine:
1. A decision to treat any disease should be determined by the sufferer, if possible.
2. “The only person more insane than an alcoholic who continues to drink is the one trying to make him/her stop.
I am sure the same applies to drugs.”
