    Addiction and dependency; not the same thing!!! Addiction: inability to
    stop negative drug intake at a psychological/physical level despite
    social/health negative consequences (cocaine=severe monetary expenditure).
    Dependency: to continue drug use, whether negative or positive intake, to
    achieve a desirable or non-desirable gain (benzodiazepine= relief of
    anxiety/depression).

    ” The more negative consequences we collect the more likely we are to
    become dependent on the drug or alcohol”. Not so. Simply not true. Please
    review this remark carefully, and think before you record. Perhaps you
    meant to say that the more negative consequences we suffer, the stronger
    the indication that we are dependent. You look like a guy who is addicted
    to nice suits.
