I believe you and I as well as all humans as an entire species are addicts to three of the hardest drugs. I made a documentary about this topic which includes interviews with experts confirming and denying the facts in question. Do you believe that we as a species are addicted to Eating, Drinking, and Breathing? I would love your thoughts.

Alcohol addicts tend to feel better after they end the addiction cycle.
You could always stop eating, drinking, and breathing, and see how well you feel afterwards.
Well you can't just stop the withdrawals are too great. Since we have been hooked on these drugs for generations it would take generations or genetic engineering to wean ourselves off of them. Really our only chance is to evolve ourselves over many generations into sobriety.
@Trust Re: Withdrawals
Yes, the withdrawal symptoms can definitely be horrible. It usually starts with a feeling of dizziness and light-headedness, accompanied by a painful burning in the lungs. Usually, this is followed by a blurring and narrowing of the vision. An unattractive bluing of the skin - particularly around the lips and fingertips - is often reported. More severe symptoms include unconsciousness, brain damage, coma, and potentially death. That is why breathing is such a terrible addiction, because the potential side-effects of trying to quit can be potentially devastating. And even worse, all it takes is just one.... little.... breath, and the user is hooked for life. This is why it is so important to educate people about the horrid dangers of breathing addiction, and anybody who is considering trying to quit should definitely consult with their physician and/or therapist. Thank you, Trust, for being brave enough to bring this controversial topic out into the light so that it can finally be given the attention it deserves.
Hi, everybody. My name is Tin-man, and I'm a breathe-aholic. I, uh, started breathing at a very early age. Many people have tried to help me quit breathing many times over the years, but I just really, really like the air. A few friends tried to help me stop breathing during some of my more reckless teenage years. The local swimming pool, for instance, was often used for many of their attempted interventions. Despite their best efforts, though, I remained defiant and continued the habit. Time moved on, and breathing just became something I learned to live with. I guess you could say I had become a functional breather. I was able to get a job. Even joined the military. I admit, it was sometimes difficult keeping my breathing habit a secret. I was always afraid somebody would eventually catch me, but by that time I had become very skilled at hiding my secret. There were several times during my career at home and while deployed overseas with the military that various considerate strangers took it upon themselves to help me stop breathing. A few of them came very close to succeeding, too. Today, however, I have been breathing for so many years that trying to stop would likely be more harmful than continuing. So, now, I simply accept my breathing addiction as something I will have to live with for the rest of my life. I know there are times when I am being annoying that my wife might wish I would stop breathing, but overall, she is a good woman and accepts my addiction as being part of who I am. Thank you all for listening. I am Tin-man, and I am a breathe-aholic.
Why would you describe the need to Eat, Breath and Drink to be addictions?
Because we do it compulsively and it controls our lives.
"Because we do it compulsively and it controls our lives."
Yes, we do, rather. Keeps us alive.
Is this a wind up? Or just a really poorly thought out sales pitch?
"Are eating, drinking and breathing destroying your life? Phone our qualified Christian counsellors NOW!"
They should have left your umbilical cord attached.
Indeed where all natural born addicts I'm addicted to videogames 4-wheeling smoking weed
You're addicted to stupidity!
I'm not surprised. If I saw a videogame 4W driving with a spliff hanging out of its mouth, I'd want to see it again, too. Bit dangerous though. There's no way those games can see over the dashboard. Can you tell me which fire trails and beaches they use so I can keep clear of them? And how do they reach the pedals?
That's like saying we are addicted to scratching our butts. Like pretending alcoholism is a "disease" it is a misuse of the word "addicted." Alcoholics can be addicted to alcohol but being addicted is never a "disease." The "disease" word is just being thrown about so people can avoid responsibility for their actions. It's a sad state of affairs.
You're confusing "addiction" with "misuse".
There's an old saying that goes with this: Not everyone who gets drunk all the time is an alcoholic, and not all alcoholics get drunk all the time.
Addicted to breathing? Oy.
breathing comes naturally as for eating that is deterministic drinking also is deterministic, you need all 3 to go on living, Or you will die and perish .to sustain life you need all 3.
I would not consider these addictions, but rather necessitates.
