It seems to me that society or certain cultures/subcultures seem a little quick to stick the addict label to people. To me 3 or 4 drinks a week does not qualify you as an addict. In fact 10 drinks doesn't either, nor does a line of speed every other night. There are certain ways to live your life and unless you are doing it with the intent of damaging your own life or the others around you then I think the addict label is a little unfair and perhaps inappropriate. Obviously there are exceptions but I think it all comes down to society not wanting to accept the fact that individuals choose to live their life a little differently from the rest of 'us', and I feel that in quite a few cases, the addict label and the measures taken to correct 'addicts' can be more damaging than the lives they were leading before intervention. Opinions?
