Great info on all forms of addiction/pleasure-seeking

I highly recommend going to this link. There is a transcript of this podcast or you can download this to itunes and listen to it on your ipod. Here is a quote from it:

“Addiction is not fundamentally a moral failing — it’s not a disease of weak-willed losers. When you look at the biology, the only model of addiction that makes sense is a disease-based model, and the only attitude towards addicts that makes sense is one of compassion.”

My sentiments exactly!

Here’s the link:
