"Our Pledge"

Anxiety, "it's an addiction"


One of the most addicting things in this world isn't
drugs or drinking, it's simply the addiction to
our thoughts.

The idea that people can control addictions just by trying
hard is a long-standing myth that has led to the
denigration of people with addictions as "weak"
or lacking in "character."
