Lightbulb A helpful Ted Talk for anyone who wants to better understand chemical dependence

Johann Hari: Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong | TED Talk

What really causes addiction -- to everything from cocaine to smart-phones? And how can we overcome it? Johann Hari has seen our current methods fail firsthand, as he has watched loved ones struggle to manage their addictions. He started to wonder why we treat addicts the way we do -- and if there might be a better way. As he shares in this deeply personal talk, his questions took him around the world, and unearthed some surprising and hopeful ways of thinking about an age-old problem.

This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Johann Hari spent three years researching the war on drugs; along the way, he discovered that addiction is not what we think it is.

I'm lying to my therapist and everyone else about my sobriety, four years ago I gave up a 13 year addiction to pain medications but I have taken them occasionally but I steal them from my dad and the guilt is overwhelming but I can't ever admit it to my parents, I also abuse my prescription of Adderall and I know I have to stop getting my prescription but that's the only thing that actually gets me up and off this bed, I tell everyone I'm isolating because I'm healing spiritual finding myself again but that's also a lie I just can't make myself get up and do anything, I think this is why I like being alone all of the time because I hate lying to everyone and I don't want them to know, I have a tela healthy appointment with my therapist tomorrow and I know I need to tell her because she can't help me if she doesn't know everything but I probably won't, this is the first time I've been completely honest and told anyone and I'm so happy I found this site because I feel like I can be my complete honest self
