    I saw the full interview from BBC and I can’t really understand or
    appreciate Matthew’s argument, just a few smart-ass comments here and
    there.

    Peter Hitchens is basically a right-wing hack – someone with no expertise
    or experience in this area, but someone who is paid to have partisan
    opinions. Some of the things he was saying last night defied evidence and
    logic. At one point he suggested that science shouldn’t be trusted in
    labeling addiction as a medical condition because it has got things wrong
    before. So to recap, his evidence (as a scientific layman) that the experts
    have got it wrong, is that science has been wrong before and therefore is
    wrong now. Idiot.

    Peter Hitchens is the Katie Hopkins of the male world. Taking drugs,
    gambling, thinking you’re fat when you’re thin(anorexia), continuous food
    eating are all an addiction. It takes over your mind, they are habitual,
    people kill themselves as the need is more powerful than the will not to.
    Only the strong come through it, you need all the help on offer to stop an
    addiction. What Peter Hitchens is saying is akin to saying to someone with
    depression and is suicidal “snap out of it”. I could give more instances
    and arguments how Peter Hitchens is wrong here but he’s a waste of space.

    wow, I’m quite impressed that Perry is more than just a comedy actor!

    Perry is right in that the addiction overcomes the willpower. It’s more
    powerful plain and simple. It’s why Hitchin’s opinion is uninformed, as
    deterrents only work if you have the will to follow through on a decision
    not to do it

    to help people.
