is addiction a disease or a personal choice?
18 August, 2007
Via MindHacks, a very good post about the question of whether addiction is a disorder of the body or of the will. It is very creative in its use of what is often thought of as a 100% physiological and genetic disease as an example.
This topic is much in the media recently (perhaps someone is plugging a book and I have missed it?) I recommend the post as an orientation to the issues.
