Addiction: It's a Brain Thing!
"My own brain is to me the most
unaccountable of machinery - always buzzing, humming, soaring,
roaring, diving, and then buried in mud. And why? What's
this passion for?" Virginia Woolf
Rather than characterize the brain as the most unaccountable of
machinery - while most have been mystified by it at one time or
another, although I doubt stated it as poignantly - I would suggest to
you that the brain is a remarkably elegant piece of machinery. A
machine that we are just beginning to understand and one that will
continue to mystify us with it's remarkable complexities and
delights. It is an organ that is a testament to evolution, to
creation and the wonder of the universe.
