The Cause of Addiction is Loneliness, Not Drugs

Side note: from now on when I get to an annoyingly-written headline (this article’s is “The Likely Cause of Addiction Has Been Discovered, and It Is Not What You Think”), I am going to re-write it here. Anyway, beautiful article. (via)

  <blockquote>        <p>For too long, we have talked exclusively about individual recovery from addiction. We need now to talk about social recovery — how we all recover, together, from the sickness of isolation that is sinking on us like a thick fog.</p>  </blockquote>
