More Connectedness

In a previous post, I was talking about how addiction, depression and anxiety are linked (actually, I can't remember if I mentioned anxiety, but anxiety and depression are incredibly linked for me, so they are all linked in my opinion.

Well, on the news this evening, they had an article on about how a study has shown addiction to be a disease of the brain - not just a lack of willpower.  We've known it for a long time, haven't we?  Hasn't alcoholism been called a disease for a really long time?  I supposed that now there is more proof.
