The Power of Addiction and the Addiction of Power
Canadian Physician, Gabor Maté, talks about the power of addiction in this powerful TED Talk
"I'm not afraid of dying...I'm more afraid of living." This is what one of Dr. Maté's patients said to him, when talking about why his addiction is so powerful. Dr. Maté asks the question: why are people so afraid of living? He also addresses why absolutely nothing can shake the chemical addictions that his patients suffer from. They lose their jobs, their homes, even their teeth, yet they continue to use the drug that is slowly killing them. Watch to learn more about the science behind addiction.
