Willful blindness. For an addict to stop being an addict, the motivation must be internal rather external – he has too really want to be free of his addiction. A related comment on methamphetamine I made on another article: A new form of methamphetamine that causes permanent brain damage in a matter weeks to months of use, is now the predominant type available. The Atlantic ran an in depth article earlier this month.

A friend of mine was a recovering addict (alcohol) and also an addition councilor.
