Psychiatrist Marc Whaley and Psychologist Michael Abruzzese talk about the psychology of addiction.   Why is it easier for some people to quit smoking (or other addictions)? Has the food industry gotten us addicted to sugars? What is the role of dopamine? The doctors discuss what addiction is, the causes, and the difference between habit and addiction.
