I was wondering how they came up with disease vs. addiction. I don't think it's one or the other. I think it's both. Granted, this is Wikipedia, but the answer seemed logical and true and it's Friday -- I don't want to search for a better source:

"In a review in 2001, McLellan et al. compared the diagnoses, heritability, etiology (genetic and environmental factors), pathophysiology, and response to treatments (adherence and relapse) of drug dependence vs type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and asthma. They found that genetic heritability, personal choice, and environmental factors are comparably involved in the etiology and course of all of these disorders, providing evidence that drug (including alcohol) dependence is a chronic medical illness."

L1: I'm loving the AAA jokes.

L2: Ugh. What everyone else - including Amy <gasp!> - said.

L3: Lol @ edog.

Toj - WORD.

Slightly related, my friend Skyped her dad into her daughter's wedding because he ended up in the hospital the day before. Without that, he would have missed his only granddaughter's wedding.
