“The most important thing that addicts and non addicts must understand is that addiction is an actual medical and biological disorder of the brain. There are actual anomalies in the brains of those vulnerable to addiction that ‘hijacks’ their conscious ability to control their use of addictive substances or their participation in destructive compulsive behaviors. Addicts are not weak, bad, stupid or crazy—their brains just operate differently when challenged by certain behaviors or activities.”
