When is the last time you had a conversation about addiction? It probably was not recently, if ever. Face it: this is not the kind of thing most people choose to discuss.
Because people don’t talk much about this subject, there are many aspects of addiction that people do not understand. In fact, most of us probably have misconceptions about addictions.
Please research what some of these myths are. Find out, based on your research, whether or not these myths are true.
