During the past couple of years, I have been interacting with people with addiction, some of them in really bad economic & health conditions.  Since I don’t do nicotine myself, I don’t have my own personal experience with such an addition.  My interactions with these hardworking but addicted individuals on a daily basis and watching others ruin their own/ family’s lives, even including their personal finances, changed my perspective about problem of nicotine and other addictions in our society.

In recent years, there is wide coverage of prescription pain killers & opioids epidemic in rural America. Because of my own biological science background, I am interested on this area and have started a opioids addition watch category in this site. Recently, I have also started adding informative articles on my list of articles on opioids epidemics series.
