    people want to judge illness as moral failure.  That's why AA was a life-line back in the day, and that's why these ideas that equate addiction with mental disorders, which are coincidental, or personalty disorders, harm people who want help.  

    And why we owe a debt to the biological researchers, even if they were looking for a profit.  Were it not for that research, those ideas would be hard to dispute, it seems so rational. It's counter-intutitive to view it as outside anyone's control.  

    It is now evidence based, totally, those bad days are over, thankfully.
