ADDICTION IS A MYTH

The notion of addictive personalities getting hooked on anything 
presupposes there are two types of human beings; addicts and their 
superiors, non-addicts. Addictions are the most preposterous medical 
sounding hoax foisted on humanity. Anybody who saw John Stossel's ABC 
addiction special, "Help me, I can't help myself," heard experts say 
addiction is a chosen behaviour. The conclusion, red or yellow, black or 
white, is there is only one kind of human being and we all have free will. 
The theory of addiction is a myth and I challenge believers to tell us who 
proved the theory .
