  • Dark side is one helluva drug.

  • Sorry if this is off topic, but people with Asperger's fascinate me because of this... They are social castaways with no connections who are constantly harassed, but studies show that they do not use any more drugs or alcohol than the average person.

  • Im addicted to water I drink it everyday.

  • That why I need someone...to be connected...and to avoid my addiction...0001f6020001f6020001f602

  • Do memes count as an addiction?

  • This was AMAZING!!!!!!! Well said!

  • Great one!

  • That mind blown.

  • As an addict i have to say that was a great video

  • So friendship can solve the "War on Drugs." Sounds like the best My Little Pony episode ever

  • I'm addicted to Kurzgesagt videos

  • There's some glaring flaws in this video. No mention is given to a key aspect of drug addiction: physical dependence. The psychological aspects are very well explained and resolved, but you simply cannot ignore the physical side to addiction in a lot of substances. Some other things seem very wrong, like the ridiculously low number of Vietnam veterans that, according to this video, kept having problems after coming back home. It's well known that the US has been dragging this problem around for decades now, as many of the soldiers returning from Vietnam had very severe addictions and withdrawal, due to morphine and many "combat drugs" that were being tested at the time, and many had other physical and psychological problems on top of that like shell-shock. A huge number of them turned to drugs to stave off those urges, and that contributed massively to the big problems with drugs in the 70's. Hell, even post-WW2 there were some problems with soldiers who had gotten hooked to opioids after being wounded or receiving them for extended periods of time for one reason or another.

  • Why was there rick as a doctor

  • I can see people with good connections and happy families and still falling into addiction. This theory is far too simplistic.

  • yes we should definitely care more about the cause, the cage, and the diconnection

  • "We put people who are not well in a situation that makes them feel worse, and hate them for not recovering" - Kurzgesagt

  • This was best!

  • My addiction is not drugs...

  • this video literally changed my life. thank you!

  • I guess he never seen a drug house with a bunch of addicts connecting. But I get the point.
