Mind vs. heart - adderall addiction

2 posts in this topic

I found this Interesting. I just read about a mythological reference, an age old battle between mind and heart that is being used in AA meetings to describe the alcoholic who stares at a glass of alcohol, his brain knowing it will harm him, but his heart craving the comfort it will provide.

The message apparently was - dont feel alone, even the gods were conflicted.

Their famous quarrel between the god of the sun, reason and the god of wine, intoxication has been said to represent our higher cortex and limbic brains at odds.
