This widens the gap that exist between them and the other"normal" people According to psychology, addiction is just a disease and with proper help and acceptance one can recover Let us join hands and support people with addiction problem pic by pixabay

I believe it's both a disease and a choice. and I don't think that according to psychology that it's "just" a disease for something as complicated as addiction you can't just consider it as disease and nothing else it' more than and maybe more than any pscyhology, doctor, experts etc will ever understand

Addiction is a cruel taskmaster. I have a friend who is suffering as I write. I am hoping that she will genuinely get the help she needs. There are underlying issues that have to be addressed and the answer is not another prescription that the doctors insist on giving her. There is hope that they'll eventually figure it out. We would all like to see her well and genuinely happy.
