    That's not the way addiction (or free will) works. The neurochemicals become less stimulating over time, requiring higher doses, strongly influencing or overriding the pre-frontal cortex lessening our ability to make alternative decisions.

    Bull****, what I hear is an excuse.

    Who came up with that? The American Psychiatric association (those people are moronic)?

    This is the sort of mechanism which fuels gambling addiction. As science and psychology becomes more sophisticated, more problems with how the human brain processes information will be revealed, opening the door for more ways to exploit that weakness.

    I personally view this as extremely unethical at best as it purposefully undermines free will. What is your take?

    Heh. Gotta hate it when science makes one face a reality they wish not to.

    Push whatever idea that you want to push, just don't expect me to fall in line behind you, I don't play that game.

    Gotta hate it when one person thinks their "reality" is somehow actually reality.

    Time to bust out the good ol argumentum ad populam fallacy.

    Looks like the poll is in my favor, OVERWHELMINGLY

    I wasn't under the impression that this was a competition or that opinion of other members of this forum really mattered all that much. Interesting you would bring this up.

    It is a competition, should the game be banned? It's a competition of how much your side (Because you definitely picked a side, and I think I know where that singular yes vote came from) can get versus mine/anyone who agrees with me.

    It's part of being human and it happens across the board.
