Free Will?

This is an interesting read on addiction, neural disorders and the otherwise broken brain:

I love this:

“The only organ in the body that seems to make self-diagnosis impossible is the brain. I mean there is no mistaking a kidney stone trying to pass. When someone is in that kind of pain they don’t blame it on their lack of character. But the brain is expert at being able to reframe and explain away its own glitches.”

Too familiar.
