    You've been told for several days now that it's not, with research and definitions that it's not. What made you just now change your mind?

    Ok now I get the idea what addiction really is: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/info/addiction/ Sorry for the faulty logic and argument for beliving addictions is a good thing everybody.

    Really? It's been that long? I was being young and small-minded about it.

    Re: Addiction

    Well, that Glasser actually wrote about "positive addiction" puts you in good company. Glasser is a huge name in education, and he caused a sea-change in the way educators (ideally) relate to students.

    But I agree more with the critique of the term that Iris posted. Positive addiction looks like a misuse of the term "addiction," to me.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.
