    Well written buzz @Craig Middleton. Dopamine is the pleasure center of our brains. There are healthy addictions and then the addictions you mentioned. Maybe that center of the brain is unable to detect whether we crave a healthy vs. unhealthy addiction. I agree, it's been proven Scientifically that Alcoholism and Drug addiction are diseases and I think every family has an immediate family member or relative that suffers or did suffer. I find it's vital if it runs in families to try and educate our children when they are young about the addiction, be honest and explain the illness by relating it to the person who is addicted because it may help kids later in life to understand they could be next w/out warning. Thanks for this, it's an important topic!

    Ah, Craig, you've made a post-mortem of addiction with this informative post. But, is really addiction a disease? Is it contagious or static? Well then, an addict is a diseased person! Right? Perhaps, before dealing in medical terms, if we humans are aware of what's right and what's wrong, what's good and what's evil, we become not prey to devil's temptations and sickening habits. In fact, addiction is a sort weakness, an outcome after embracing harmful substances that weakens reasoning, emotions and stamina. It's after all true realization, bent of conscience, giving worth to temporal life, contentment and gratitude towards the Almighty Lord can kick off this addiction. With the presence of these, even counsel and medicines work.

    Very insightful! Dear Craig, when you say Addiction is a disease and not a lack of Will, you classify it as something that can be treated and cured. Which is a great thing indeed! Not all addiction is bad...some of us are addicted to work ;) or cycling...or playing music etc., as professionals! So not all addiction is a disease as Max opined. We understand what kind of addiction is harmful here of course and can obviously self-define for convenience :) It really makes me think harder about why some yogis and sages have held positive equanimity so high. They always maintained that a high would be followed by a low. Inevitable. So better to cultivate the mind not to feel joy or pain; or try not to be affected by either - is what they tried to say in their own way. Hmmm!

    Excellent article. Thanks for posting. That's the reason why we have such s challenge moving an individual away from an addiction (any addiction). It's a chemical thing and therefore you need to sustitute with meaningful/purposeful activities which causes the same or more dopamine to be secreted.

    I have always disagreed with the idea of addiction being a disease. Here' why.

    You can addicted to anything and it is not limited to substances. Anything that activates the pleasure center can become addictive.

    People get addicted to all kinds of activities and not substances alone. Alcoholism can be passed down genetically however not all addictions are the same.

    After doing a lot of independent research on Cannabis for medical purposes, I'm a proponent for it's use. They push opiates like candy (Dr's) and opiates are the drugs many become addicted to which leads to seeking street drugs when they are no longer prescribed Opiates, Heroin being the number one street drug people turn to and many die from. Cannabis is not addictive physiologically and doesn't kill anyone. It's benefits are growing after much research and helping many. Our state of Pennsylvania also passed a law for use of Medical Marijuana. I wish my mom would've had access to legal cannabis during her cancer, maybe she wouldn't have experienced hallucinations and awful side effects she endured from opiate based drugs.

    Timely post Ethan. Although my condition is not severe enough to go to this route, it's good to know these replacement parts are available for later. I am about to start physical therapy, hopefully that will reduce the need for a new knee.

    Japanese Green Tea Consumers Have Reduced Risk of Dementia

    An article published on July 18, 2016 in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry reports a lower incidence of dementia among green tea drinkers in Japan.

    "Because of the high rates of tea consumption by the global population, even small effects of this daily habit on an individual could have a large impact on public health," observe authors Yasutake Tomata of Tohoku University and colleagues.

    The study included 13,645 participants in the Ohsaki cohort 2006 study that enrolled men and women aged 65 years and older residing in Ohsaki City. Surveys completed upon enrollment included questions regarding average consumption of tea in addition to various food items. Subjects were also queried concerning current psychological distress, motor function, subjective memory complaints and other factors. The group was followed from April 2007 until the end of November 2012, during which 8.7% developed dementia.

    Subjects who consumed high amounts of green tea were likelier to be women and to be nonsmokers. Compared with those who consumed less than one cup per day, those who consumed three to four cups had a 16% lower adjusted risk of dementia and subjects who consumed more than five cups had a 24% lower risk. Limiting the analysis to those who did not report memory complaints upon enrollment failed to substantially affect the results.

    While nonsignificant protective effects for oolong and black tea were observed, the stronger effects found for green tea suggest that its high epigallocatechin gallate (ECGC) content could be responsible for the neuroprotective benefit uncovered in this study.

    "This study has shown that green tea consumption is associated with a decreased risk of incident dementia in Japanese elderly individuals," the authors conclude. "This suggests that green tea consumption may have a preventive effect against dementia."
