After I saw the term 'addiction' defined by a drug user in a completely positive and slightly weird light, I was going to search for the TRUE
definition just to counter that ridiculous version.
However, I was a bit shocked (I should stop being shocked by anything this stupid world does) to notice that there are almost no proper and true,
NEUTRAL and factual definitions of this word - - it's almost always completely biased and completely non-neutrally defined.
Of course psychiatry has TAKEN OVER all kinds of definitions, so now everything, EVERYTHING is a 'disease' or 'disorder' or 'chemical imbalance' in
your 'brain', and often this whole addiction thing is even defined PURELY physically. What?
Addiction is not a disease. It's not an illness. It's not something chemical in your brain. It's not a disorder (whatever THIS means, but psychiatry
seems to LOVE this word, as now everything is a 'disorder', when before, there could be all kinds of mental and spiritual distresses, like
'manic-depressive' or 'split personality' - now it's 'bipolar disorder' and I don't even remember the other thing, something about 'dissociative
identity disorder' (SO easy to remember, right? CLEAR language, right?).
Look, let's give proper definitions back to the world, shall we? As far as I can tell, and as far as I can neutrally define the word 'addiction'
without serving the big pharma or the nihilistic mindset of governments and corporations, or without worshipping the whole 'brain
chemistry/disorder/physical' mess that the psychiatry (a non-science or pseudo-science with not even one shred of evidence to back up its claims if I
ever saw one, and yet it wields a lot of power over innocent people)..
..let's try to be as neutral and informative, as clear and as descriptive, as honest and truthful as possible, shall we?
How about this: 'Addiction is the strong compulsion to continue engaging in an activity (such as using a substance), regardless of its
See? No need for 'disorder', 'disease', 'medical', 'brain imbalance', 'physical', or ANY of that biased and judgmental crap.
Addiction can be purely spiritual, you don't even need physical brain to be addicted. This world can't accept reality as is, but it's kind of shocking
that it can't EVEN aim to define words NEUTRALLY, regardless of its bias and stigma.
The word 'addiction' is NOT stigmatized as some drug users with their improperly balanced brains say, but it _IS_ very wrongly defined, in ways that
benefit the big pharma, psychiatry and control over the 'little people'.
Let's bring neutrality back to definitions!
I don't see anything wrong with my definition of addiction, and in my humble opinion, it's the MOST truthful definition of that word I have seen.
However, if someone has even more neutral and truthful definition, I would like to hear it, of course. I can't understand why you can't find this type
of definition with search engines, this world must be even more mad than I thought, when even a simple, innocent, neutral definition can't exist
I wonder how this was defined in dictionaries of the old, I wonder it was more neutral back in the sixties or seventies..
Some points abouit my definition:
- It can describe harmful AND harmless addictions
- It takes into account that the activity or usage might be completely harmless / positive / neutral
- It takes into account all KINDS of addictions that have nothing to do with substances, brain chemistry or even the physical side (heck, you can be
addicted to astral projection or meditation, and this definition still applies!)
- The consequences can be good, bad or neutral, and this definition is still positive (it doesn't say anything about 'inability', as 'inability' is
not really a thing, it's more like lack of a thing, and you can't define a thing purely by describing a lack of a thing)
- It can honestly and truthfully be applied to _ANY_ kind of addiction, regardless of severity and other factors - it can even be used for
Try to find this kind of definition from the 'official sources'.. they couldn't be more biased, while feigning neutrality. Money talks, and big pharma
and faux 'science', like psychiatry, DOMINATE definitions now. And through that, your life, should you ever end up in their teeth.
