Simon Keith: Does kurzgesagt count as an addiction

Noah Luis Wiscovitch: And lots of sex””-rat park “”Make our society like rat park- person who made this video. sex = disgusting disgusting = bad society



Tacos? I’ll get 2 spicy shelled. Tacos. ,mmmmmm good

Tassamu Akhsan: Hey, I found some education on reddit -,-, but yeah it's addictive😂😂😂

Mimiga_Major2776: I WANNA GO TO RAT PARK!!!!!!!!!

Aravindhan T: I think grandpa Rick has a different opinion about bonding with people compared to bonding with electronic devices.

with regards,
Morty

Pattie S: yes we should definitely care more about the cause, the cage, and the diconnection

Troglodyt: Can anybody tell me the Name of the Study/Studies that showed the addiction rates of patients after a diamorphine prescription? I can't find it.

Mazo Al Mi: Rickkkkkkkkkkk

Pradeep K: poor jessie........i feel bad for him

Dalem Tube: Wait we watch YouTube so we are addicted

AL Can: People getting feed “heroine” at a hospital don’t become addicts because most of them don’t have access to street heroine. Same for soldiers coming back from war

Michelle C.: Foda

Princess Sarcasm: This makes me feel about life

monkeyoctet: i need connection , log in reedit

HardCandi: Is it the same case for love addiction? It's just when the connection is achieved nothing goes away it doesn't end the addiction. Someone give me some insight.

Sam Is Alive: What if I say my grandma is a junkie

Absolute Love: Maybe we are addict to social life

Shari Lyn: So that must be the difference between someone who can party it up on the weekend then quit and someone who just can't put it down. Kind of unfair to call everyone that does drugs an addict (as some people do). It's just not true. Been saying that for years. Thanks Kurzgesagt!

Mark Williams: The sin of idolatry, is the true cause of every addiction.
Whatever we give the highest priority to in our lives becomes our idol.
We are lovers of pleasure, rather than lovers of God. We've turned our back to God and rejected our only savior, so we've become Satan's puppets.
I tried everything under the son to get off heroin including methadone and suboxone. Nothing worked until I asked Jesus to help me. Jesus is almighty God, He can't do anything for you if you believe in Him and trust Him.
It wasn't easy doing it cold turkey, but Jesus gave me just enough faith to see it through. He set me free from the bondage of all drugs including antidepressants, alcohol and smoking.

thel vadamee: It's a nice idea but that's not how it works
