Comments

Adam Rang: sitting in room alone watching the end clapping furiously in agreement

Bruno Mikan: This goes along with the bible way to well
If everyone was a nicer person just like god wants us to be a lot less people would be getting isolated out of society by others there so would get addicted less
ps. im not a insanely religus person this is just a thought that popped up.

XAquaTheWolfX: I know an addiction. Your channel.

Leo Copeland: Oversimplification... I love their videos but this one was a bit naive. Some people are genetically more predisposed to addiction. I know people who had a fulfilling life and got hooked easily. The video doesn’t offer any realistic solution to the problem.

David Z: So if you are forever alone, you will become an addict......

jinan jamal: Great work 😀😀

Liz Evers: subtle rick and morty reference

Nyng Wang: So, I'm disconnected.

AgenteET786: This video is really nice. Yo.

Foppa: If anything when I do drugs I bond with new people I meet and do drugs with

Zhihong Chong: Rick...

Isidora Pino: I think this is true at some extent, when people are happy and connected they don’t need to go find things to make them feel better such as alcohol and drugs, but once they do get hooked on them
It’s physically hard to keep yourself from using

Mega Absol: Well, I'm just gonna say that both theories are kinda equally true.

Madara the OP guy: Im addicted to healthy food

Flash1Blind: What about when s group of close connected friends start taking drugs recreationally, then become addicts , that seems like a semi-common scenario in young ppl?

Brysen Landis: Agreed

M.K Tuck: Great! now I have a cocaine craving! thanks kurg

Cytherea R C: This was eye-opening. Everyone needs to see this. It will completely change the mindset of addiction in the commen people.

FresHit: Awesome..make sense on every single word!!

DAT HIPPO BOI: Does that mean this is wrong?
