Is addiction a choice?

Research Psychologist Gene Heyman says that addiction is a choice and he has written a book about it. Tom Ashbrook interviews Heyman and others about this idea on his show "On Point" on August 11, 2009.

I think the argument is kind of silly because addiction is BOTH a choice and a disease not one or the other.

It is worth listening to. Show lasts about 50 minutes and you can access it by clicking here.
