    I really enjoyed the movie as it seemed to be a realistic view in the life of a “professional” addict.
    No matter what addiction we have…… alcohol, street drugs, prescribed drugs, food, work, etc….we all want to be free of the negative feelings about the life we are involved in.
    The brain is such a complicated organ. Thank goodness more and more is being written about how it works.

      Great point! There can never be enough written because everyone is effected. What I see psychically is that an addictive person has a postivie experience with, say, eating frozen yogurt. The image and the accompanying satisfaction replays in the person’s mind, getting bright each day and before you kow it, the person is running to a yogurt store everyday, and always rooting around for one. We can become addicted to anything. (Me with playing solitaire on my Droid or staying up way too late. Better tuck myself in now. (LOL) Best, Rochelle

    A very interesting blog, and the comment, “The brain is such a complicated organ. Thank goodness more and more is being written about how it works,” is so true. I think many things believed now willl be disproved, and so many things not known about the brian will be discovered in the future. I wish I could be around to see what happens; so many will be owed apologies for how they’ve been treated by society.

      You’re right. Addiction takes place in the same part of the brain as the psychic faculty–the amygdala. (Spelling?) What a fascinating comment, Marilyn. In anonymous groups, an addict is supposed to apologize for everything that he’s done to others. With your revelation, maybe others will someday apologize to them as well. Best, Rochelle
