The socially acceptable addiction

Fri, 09/28/2018 - 15:58 -- Karen Minty

I have an addiction. Yes, I’m an addict, or at least trying to be a ‘recovering addict’ without too much success. Society won’t help me. There are no detox centres for my addiction nor clinics handing out substitute drugs for it. I’m on my own.

Society won’t help me because it’s a socially acceptable addiction. There is no funding for programs because a very large portion of the economy thrives on me being addicted. They want us all to be addicted, that’s how they make money.  

I’m addicted to sugar.
