>Now C'mon. Denial is a part of addiction.

No. Stupidity is part of denial. I have met pleny of intellegent smokers (for example) who know full well (and believe) what the risks are. They don't downplay them. They don't chalk them up to propeganda. They understand and accept responsibility regardless of being addicted. Denial is stupidity. This is a separate affliction.

Yeah, but call it what it is. It is addiction. I'm not a fan of people coming onto the board talking all about how good this or that illegal drug makes them feel. Duh, its a powerfully reinforcing addictive substance. The fact that it makes you "feel" good doesn't change the nature of the beast.

Some people can't logically separate the positive effects of the drug from the negative health consequences. How could something 'so good' be so bad. Thats lack of ablity to think, IMHO, not addiction.

Addicts will not get better until they hate the drug more than they love it.
