But I like to catch myself when I realize I'm wrong.
True. That's probably the cause of the confucsion. I basically made up a new definition.Completely different from mine (or the dictionary ) but I get your point.
True, again this is due to a lack of clarification on my part. We were speaking about two different things in both cases (what a drug is and what is "worse").I don't agree only because I think the mental addiction is worse in other ways. So I think we can agree to disagree as that is pretty much subjective.
Again I will agree to disagree due to the subjective nature of physical vs mental withdrawals.
Admittedly, I wasn't really considering the mental effects in my determination of "worse", I was talking about the sheer physical agony, not the mental anguish. It is subjective, and I was making the assumption that you had the same subjective perspective as I do.
Clearly not the same.
I believe both have amazingly high relapse rates, but that study you showed in the previous post shows that cocaine has a longer period of the "compulsion" stage and aspect.
That is pretty compelling evidence for your case.
