One Response to “ Non-Drug Addictions ”

  1. Hi. What a wonderful resource. I will place a link to you on my website, “Alcohol & Addiction Information Links” page. As a counselor with a science background, I too have always looked to synthesize personal experiences and more objective biological truths regarding “drugoholism” And anything else that is relevant too! Best wishes, hypnohotshot.
