New Ruling Addiction is Offical Disease

I read in New World & USA Today that it has been ruled that addiction is a brain disorder not just bad judgement or morals. I'm glad they are finally waking up to the seriousness of addiction. What do you say, think?

I have always thougth it and when I would say it out loud I would get shot down and the same thing was repeated "you made the decision to use that drug or drink that drink" well yes I did but I never expected It would go this far and i would be using everyday...maybe somethings wrong with me, my brain connections ?? still, Nothing....so to read this makes me feel like IM NOT CRAZY and haven't been Im not the weak minded looser I was told i was.....thank you for sharing.
