Every day I’m on a lot of sites that deal with addiction, or have articles on it. Often, after finishing an article, I’ll read a few of the comments until the denial gets to me and I have to stop or barf.
It’s amazing how people will go to a site about drug abuse, read the articles, and then go on at length about the mistaken notion that such and such a drug is addicting, whether their binge drinking is the same as alcohol abuse, and so forth.
The obvious question never seems to occur to them: Why, if they have no issues with drugs, are they reading articles about it? I’ll bet very few folks without AIDS or TB read articles about them.
Just a thought.
