Today I would like you to read section 5 of chapter 16 on personality disorders and drug addiction. I would also like you to understand as you read that the process of addiction is basically the same; only the object of the addiction changes. For some, it's drugs. For others the addiction can be to alcohol, gambling, shopping, smoking, sex, or any other behavior. In any case, the process of addiction is basically the same.
Song of the day
I've been in a funk for the last couple of days ever since I saw the footage of the arrest of George Floyd that resulted in his death. We are dealing with so much with general anger in peoples' responses to the coronavirus, government restrictions on society, fake news, indifferent leaders, and political infighting, and massive flooding that adding another American citizen killed in a routine detention has turned the world upside down. It makes me think of Detroit's own Marvin Gaye, who along with the Motown records crew, wrote this song in response to the racial issues of the 1960s, the war in Vietnam, the treatment of Vetrans returning from the war, and the political issues in the United States at the time. It's a song of protest, of love for your fellow human beings; a song that says that we have more in common than we have different, and is a song of hope for a future where our differences are behind us. This is the song What's Going On? by Marvin Gaye.
