Drugs are never the problem. No addiction is. They are the solution to a bad reality. They numb, they alter, they fake, they hide... something that we don't want there.
Which got me thinking... we usually take religion for the same reason. And we find ourselves addicted to it. And we wonder why we can't let it go. And we wonder why we feel so bad when we do.
Not all religion is a drug. But it sure can be. And there are all kinds of addicts out there.
