Addict Nation Is A Wake-up Call For America – Pay Attention To Its Message And Change Your Life

Houston, TX, March 21, 2011 - Having hit the NY Times bestsellers list with her previous book, iWant, a very candid story of how Jane’s own addictive personality nearly ruined her life, it looks like she has done it again with her latest book Addict Nation: An Intervention for America (HCI Books -- $24.95). Jane points out how the media, government and private business act as ‘pushers’ in that they justify, romanticize, and promote these destructive behaviors and now we have a nation addicted to (take your pick) drugs, food, alcohol, gambling, pornography, shopping – even crime!

It comes down to a supply and demand situation. Whenever somebody absolutely has to have something that’s called demand, and addiction creates enormous demand, which means there are massive profits in supplying what we crave – so when it comes to combating addictive behavior, we are wasting taxpayer dollars by trying to engineer strictly political solutions. It goes without saying that addictions can be extremely expensive – both to individuals and the nation as a whole.

The more widespread an addiction the more likely it is to be seen as normal, and since it often comes packaged as just a harmless distraction, by the time we realize something is wrong we are well and truly hooked! In fact, the most dangerous addictions are the ones we fail to even diagnose as addictive behavior because we have accepted them as normal. That’s why it has to be up to us as individuals to stop the insanity!

Jane Velez-Mitchell candidly points out that addiction determines our behavior and this has led to a nation now dependent on dysfunctions that include obsessive cleanliness, food addictions, prescription drug dependency, sexual exploitation, overconsumption, crime, and yes - even cruelty! Jane hopes that by bringing attention to our nation’s addictive culture, we can escape the hold our worst impulses have on us.

Addict Nation is a well-researched, impressive and powerful book that tells a compelling story about a society in denial and the repercussions of its self-destructive behavior, showing what America needs to do to get help and get well. Never one to sugar-coat the truth, Jane Velez-Mitchell’s latest book is no exception.
