GUEST, Smoking yuk I don't know any humans who don't have "addictive personalities". Seems to me everyone is 'addicted' to something - air and water and food and exercise, for example.

Some of us are addicted to 'political correctness', especially the part where we are permitted to insult/attack/hate/scapegoat certain of our neighbours without sanction - be they Jews or blacks or gays or, most currently, smokers.

Being 'politically correct' means one believes everything one is told about the 'target' people or issue is true, without question. This spares one the bother of THINKING creatively or conducting one's own 'investigation' into the facts of the matter.

It's so easy to get addicted to the hormonal chemical cocktail that strong emotions like hatred and anger produce. It's a real buzz to hate thy neighbour, if one likes that kind of thing. I've heard it's a very hard habit to break. Especially cold turkey.

Good luck with that if you ever decide to quit, Guest Fuming! YUK!!!
