Good morning by the way. We are having only our second cold spell of the winter here in Olympia. For all of my friends in the north and east I know that sounds unbelievable considering the winter you have had, but it is true. We have had two inches of snow all winter here….let me say that again…two inches.
My last post raised the question why people buy GMO foods knowing that they are bad for them….but we can take that a step further, can’t we? Why do people smoke? There can be no doubt, can there, that everyone knows that smoking can cause cancer? And yet people ignore that and start the addiction and go on for years. Where is the logic?
The same can be said for drugs and alcohol? The statistics of crime and accidents and death caused by alcohol and drugs are staggering, and yet people take them.
Now I am an alcoholic. I don’t know my family’s history with regards to addiction, so I was flying blind when I took my first drink. By the time I realized I had a drinking problem I was addicted….and once addiction enters the picture all logic is gone…..but…..
Is there any doubt that meth is bad for you? How about cocaine? Heroin? Knowing that something might kill you and still taking it….are we not talking about dysfunction?
We humans are fascinating creatures. We have such complex and analytical brains, and yet at times the simplest truth escapes us.
