Due to worsening effects to society, no wonder addiction has been widely accepted as a disease. It was put as it is like synonymous that addiction is the need and craving for drugs. But is this really the cause of addiction?

This video explains that almost everything we know about addiction is wrong. Adapted from Johann Hari’s New York Times best-selling book ‘Chasing The Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs’, its not the chemicals that drive people to it but its the human’s isolated cages.

Addiction is a symptom of disconnection and the way out of it is to form healthy bonds with people we want to be connected.
