The Addiction Myth
Understanding what really causes addiction

What if everything you think you know about addiction is wrong? Journalist, Johann Hari, researched addiction and its causes over the course of a year and the results, shared in his book, Chasing the Scream, are fascinating.

The old theory goes that drugs cause addiction. If you use heroin, for example, you are destined to become a heroin addict. Yet, thousands of people are administered a purer form of heroin when they go to hospital for major surgery and they don’t come out with a heroin addiction. So what’s going on?

We must understand what really causes addiction before we can heal it. And maybe the way we’ve been looking at healing addiction is based on totally wrong assumptions.

Enjoy this entertaining, clear and excellent explanation about the true cause of addiction.
