I think I may have a problem understanding addiction. They say that it really is a “disease” like cancer correct? But it’s a disease where one can be CURED but only if the person really wants it? So it’s really not a disease like cancer at all. I can't wrap my brain around this even though I feel that I do know a lot about it because of all the research, psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, counselors, social workers, rehabs etc. etc. to infinity. I think this is what drives the guilt (it's a disease) and anger (he can be cured if he really wants it!) in me!
