Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong | Johann Hari

Оценок: 106986 | Просмотров: 4878973
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.

OMG, just wonderful. And listen, for all of you who criticize, OF COURSE there are differing reasons for addiction. OF COURSE you cannot lose yourself for anyone else. However, what Portugal has done, making this into a loving system of chosen recovery, is working more than the punishment. The proof is in the pudding ... it's a whole lot better than how the nasty USA does it. But you see, we have For Profit Prisons. They need bodies for those beds and by God, they're going to get them. Money Above All ... that the real motto of the US of A. And YES, the problems connect. We have so little sense of community, anymore. What he says is correct ... we've traded our basic and most essential human needs in for the latest iPhone.

Standing ovation from me. I appreciate your message. Absolutely wonderful, insightful, intelligent and compassionate message. May this crucial knowledge/wisdom be dispersed throughout society and may medical practitioners hear this so treatment may at least be merciful. This talk clarifies and helps people in many ways. People must connect and be loved. Nothing else is tolerable and should be shunned. Those unaware , I hope will be motivated to hear this message. Thank you. This message could save lives.

I like the approach described but the title is frankly fucking moronic. If we continue to use a black and white approach (to anything), that is, this version of events is the “right and only” way and anything different is wrong, we will continue to make the same mistakes as the last idea that claimed to be a truth.

The heroin where I come from, is not the junk this guy is finding on the street. It's white and usually in the 90% range, straight from South America to NJ. And I'll tell you, if you try to come off heroin after "bonding" with it, it's nearly fucking impossible, unless you want to be sick beyond comprehension on purpose, for at least a week.

Being an addict myself, firstly with Alcohol and nearly all of the gateway drugs, to becoming gravely Ill and damaging my pancreas beyond repair. Then switching to pain medications which to this day I still remain addicted. I agree wholeheartedly with you and although I watched you” teach me how to suck “eggs, and “I have been this way for over a third of my life so I know everything “ to agreeing with you. I lost my father when I was 12 and no mother to guide me left me bitter and very angry and jealous of others. So thanks for posting this video,, it has helped.

An amazing way of looking at addiction...connection is the what is truly needed...we should all try to be a little more like the Portuguese
Survivormane (19 часов назад)
You realize when someone is truly addicted that their connection to the drug is WAY stronger and WAY more prioritized than any loved ones. That’s the problem with this ‘Love is the answer’ stuff. This guys not a drug addict nor a scientist so why believe anything he says on the subject. This is dangerous thinking.

4 minutes into the video and I totally disagree. I've been on Morphine for 20 years due to a broken back that required multiple surgeries. After just a few days from the first surgery I was chemically dependant on the pain medication, addicted, I've been going from one form to another for years but was hooked within a few days..

Title is not technically accurate--there is a chemical factor to addiction; it's just not the only factor and bonding can help prevent or help cure drug use. Would have been nice if he'd mentioned the fact that bonding with humans activates the same neurochemical processes as using drugs...

This was brilliant. From personal experience, as I have confronted my own addiction, I have never even thought about how connections (or lack thereof) may in fact be a causal factor. It is true though. I have long struggled to build relationships with people. My addiction is the escape from reality I desire because my reality often sucks. Ironically, it also gives me a sense of control I don't otherwise have. I say ironic because if I think about it, it is actually controlling me. This gives me an entirely new perspective to view things from. I also fully agree that laws and law enforcement need a drasticly new approach. Again from personal experience the current goal of law enforcement is to isolate me both socially and economically. Thus far it is being entirely counter productive.
jake jackobson (3 дня назад)
Hmmm weed addiction . I don’t even want to stop . I like smoking My take is that calling people addicts is bad. Most addicts need a goal or help getting the goal they have always wanted .( sometimes these goals cannot be achieved or achieved easily like gamblers ( reaching a set amount of money for example ) So yeah another example would be myself . I can’t get a decent job so I smoke weed all day if I got a decent job I probably would smoke less .

Also, all addicts just like all people are very very DIFFERENT. Different people different drugs different reasons etc etc. doesnt help the world to paint all addicts with one brush.
kerry Rose (3 дня назад)
This is only 1 side of the reasons people become addicts. People dont only become addicts because theyre lonely or bored or unhappy. They have a specific problem, a specific void in their lives or certain psychological disabilities or inabilities and they find a specific drugs that fixes that for them (ie meth or alcohol making someone more socially comfortable or breaking them out of their shell) then many people get hooked because they dont think the bad things will happen to them and that they have it all under control and then eventually they lose that control. But they dont know any better they dont know enough about addiction because theyre never seen it in person. Top that with an addictive personality and/or someone who is spoiled and used to getting what they want with no consequences (maybe a parent whos an enabler) and youve got yourself an addict. Many people become addicts that come from a very happy and healthy life and have all the love happiness and success they can get. And the more you give them the more you just enable them until they suck you dry.

I can vouch for the positive way Portugal handles drugs in general. Got pulled over there, had some cannabis. Instead of giving me a fine or even arresting me maybe, the officers filled out a form which took about an hour. They then told me to go about my business, BUT: I had to consult a psychiatrist in the closest village, the next day. That doctor had a checkup chat with me, to see what my connections in life are. He actually asked me how my relationship with my mother and father was. The chat was enlightening, he asked me where did I get the cannabis and if I consumed a lot. After about an hour of exchanging words with the doctor, I was free to go. However, if I would get caught again, there would be a consultation with the police in my home country. Just for the record: I got a note from the officers who busted me, which basically showed every drug there is and right next to it a box to tick off... So basically, whether it was cannabis or heroine, the treatment would've been exactly the same.

I can't believe how people have excuses to use the drugs. I had my right wrist broken. All the bones were out/misplaced. The doctor said surgery. I said NO. The numbing meds don't work on me. We argued for 2 hours. Finally he agreed to fix it by hand. And he said it may not be as perfect as surgery. I said, it is okay. Actually, He fixed it pretty good. Oh God, it was so painful. Now my wrist is perfectly fine. People believe to doctors right away. People want to use meds. People try to find excuses to use meds. There were so many occasions where I shared natural remedies with many people. They choose to use meds instead of trying natural remedies. People are too blind to think of themselves.

Who is this guy or creds.? He’s not an addict or a dr or addiction specialist? I agree with some of what he says but addiction is. Bio/psycho/social. These three factors combined are the basis of addiction. And not cocaine so much but no chemical or physical addiction to heroin? Wtf is like to watch this guy use it for a month or two then walk away from it!
Roguishly Handsome (6 дней назад)
Alright, but you can't reject the chemical explanations simply because it does not affect 100% percent of the people that use drugs. I'm not saying that a new perspective like this is not needed, but everything we know about chemical receptors and the effect of drugs on them is not wrong just because some people do not react the same way. It absolutely is a tremendous factor. Physical withdrawal is not some nonsense fairy tale. And LOADS of people become addicted as the result of taking painkillers following an accident. And not every addict is a solitary, socially disconnected compulsive user. Of course, successfully overcoming addiction requires a change of attitude and habits and trying to get a new perspective on life. I know precisely what it entails for a lot of people. I did not just _look_ at addicted people and think about it. I _was_ one of those people. But my problem was not with an illegal substance. Of course, when you stop punishing people with criminal accusations and imprisonment because they have a drug problem, you certainly create an environment where addicted people can receive the help they really need without the stigmatisation that impedes their chance of quitting by lowering their self esteem. You have to value your own life, to see value in getting better. When people feel supported, when they feel that the people around them, the doctors and nurses at the hospital, care about their well being and want to help them get better, their chance of success increases dramatically.

Find a local group and connect with them.There will be people in all stages of recovery . It takes awhile for the brain to adjust back.The over stimulation has mechanism that desensitize. So regular fun things like food and company of others will not be as rewarding at first. Sometimes the chemicals in your brain will temporarily go out of balance and for no apparent reason you will not sleep and have using dreams that feel bad. You may have bouts of depression that will pass but sometimes last a few days. If you feel negative get a journal and write down how you feel and as well write down things that are improving. Challenge your negative thoughts . If you can get out and volunteer , so if you feel down on yourself you will be able to see positive the things you do .You can see yourself as a nurturer . Sit in your chair while watching TV and belly breathe . Like filling your belly as though it is a balloon pause and exhale. Exhale for a little longer than you inhaled.If you are tense while you inhale clench your fists hold for 2 secs then release your fists as you exhale .You can do this all around your body. Start with your jaw, open your mouth as wide as possible then release as you exhale. then shoulders and neck. Then your arms , fists, stomach , legs calves and with your toes.curl and release.Take your time . When you lay in bed at night belly breathe and imagine you are taking the air in from the bottom of your feet up your legs to fill your belly.This focus will stop you from obsessive thoughts that are negative.

This is a sincere question. How do you be close to someone that has shown to be dangerous and explosive? Exposing my children to this person is dangerous. How do you love someone but have boundaries that protect you?...from stealing, from angry outbursts, from overdose (possible death...that is traumatizing to find a loved one dead)
anthony (6 дней назад)
For sure you are right.The only way is "boundaries with consequences" . He seems to only refer that we persecute people simply because they do drugs. He completely avoids the harms caused by addiction behaviors that extend beyond the addict. Left unchecked families are basically held hostage . It is the behaviors of addiction that causes the stigma . You cannot change stigma unless they change the behaviors that create the stigma. We cannot wait util they do something harmful and then wonder why we didn't stop them before. All we have to do is read the papers and robberies assaults and psychosis from using.

When I was a teenager, I was a gaming addict. I started going to college a few years back in a larger town where there's a lot more to do, where I have a lot more connections, and as a consequence, I don't game as regularly. Sometimes there are weeks between picking up a game. The difference between the town I went to study, and the town where I came from is, that my hometown was small and I didn't have many deep meaningful connections.

I agree with this to a point. With healthy people a change of environment and frame of mind may be extremely beneficial, especially when there are deeper personal issues (counselling is difficult for many to begin though). However, what about those that are in constant physical pain? My father experienced addiction and depression to an extent when his doctor's didn't believe he had arthritis. Their tests kept coming up negative but he was in constant pain. It's difficult to go out and become more socially connected when everything hurts. Now that my father has the medication and items he needs to decrease his discomfort his mobility has increased and alcohol use is practically nonexistent.

No so profound. As is typical, people with agendas- in this case the legalization of drugs- only want to see one side of the picture. As a counselor of 30 years I have known many people who live in “Rat Park Disney” who became addicted and responded positively, stopped their addiction, precisely because of the threat of punishment. The bottom line is, the issue of treatment for addiction is much more complicated than he is presenting.

Marcus BlueSky (8 дней назад)
If you watch the videos of Simon Sinek where he explains - among a lot of very important things - the natural chemicals in our body which make us feel happy you recognize the pattern here. And why he is right! Basically all things we know causing 'addiction' are releasing the chemical dopamine in our brains. This stuff is actually causing the addiction. We want more of that because it makes us feel happy very quickly. There is another chemical called oxytocin which is released when we are in a good relationship of any kind (job, love, friendship) which makes us feel fulfilled. Oxytocin in a massive amount cancels out the effect out of dopamine and so the addiction. So that is the explanation why the example of the person in Portugal worked. And why the whole concept works. But it means addiction exists, it is just canceled out if we are in an environment where we feel save and loved and fulfilled.
