In short being addicted is like watching the same shitty movie on repeat, day in and day out, all the while feeling as though you have no control to put something else on. It’s a slow progression into insanity. While you’re conscious it’s happening, you don’t have the capacity to make a change.
What do you think are the differences between drug use, chemical dependency, and addiction? Are there differences? What’s your opinion? My take is this: there are significant differences between the three and, when viewed as a whole, they make up the spectrum of drug use.
