It fosters an ideology that an external object or event will solve internal difficulty, will salve inner conflict. This to my mind mirrors what an addict does in their immediate life and drug use. They need to relinquish the using in order to face and come to terms with the underling dynamics and suffering. We would appear to need to let go of perpetual commodity use and growth, perhaps to return to a focus upon relatedness, although in a more conscious and volitional form. In its most obvious context this is a question of numbers.

Industrialisation and commodification of life can be seen at play in our attitudes to use and using behaviours. David Nutt (2011) approaches this relationship in his book Drugs Without the Hot Air making the point that we are currently struggling with industrial strength drugs, that is, opium as heroin, coca as crack etc. However I think he misses the psychodynamic out of his argument, the personal, subjective and related, as his focus is on policy and science, risking, in my opinion a reenactment of addictive dynamics in his thinking.

This was brought about through a period of increased wealth, reduced grain prices and a relaxation of the distilling laws in London. There were a series of Acts ADDICTION 27 of Parliament concluding in 1751 that licensed gin production and sale. Some think that it was the increase in food prices that stopped the high levels of consumption.
