On Getting High

No comments

I read a lot about addiction and this article below, by Tommy Rosen, published in the Elephant Journal, is a beauty!

Many people distance or disassociate themselves from the word, “addiction” as it seems to connote something extreme, like the heroin addict living on the street half-dead, for example. That image does not apply to most people, but the more I read about addiction, the more I see that we live in a culture of addiction, the most obvious being consumerism, and I recognize that I and many other “upstanding” or “normal” people exhibit the qualities and behaviors of the addict. Addiction is insidious. So, maybe you aren’t an alcoholic, maybe you don’t even smoke weed, maybe you are sober, but I guarantee you will¬†identify with this article nonetheless.
