Everything You Know About Addiction Is Wrong
Johann Hari spent three years researching the war on drugs; along the way, he discovered that addiction is not what we think it is.
For years we have witnessed lives ruined from addictions. Not only with drugs, but now with phones interrupting the way we communicate. And as stated in the article on “ICE”, the problem is getting worse.
What really causes addiction and how can we overcome it?
In under 15 minutes, this Ted Talk video by Johann Hari will change the way you think about addiction. He has watched loved ones struggle to manage their addictions and seen the current methods fail firsthand. Hari raises the questions, “Why do we treat addicts the way we do? Is there a better way?”
The New York Times journalist travelled the world trying to find the answers to these questions, unearthing surprising and hopeful new ways of thinking about the age-old problem of addiction.
This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and has been transcribed into 35 languages.
