"The Woman Who Was Addicted to Psychics."

And like other forms of addiction, it was as if she had built up a tolerance to having her fortune read, in that she ended up needing more and more of it to feel satisfied.

I have "a problem" with alcohol.
My brother Peter, who died last week, it was cannabis.
The psychology is similar to types of woo.

Sad news about your brother, Polomint. My sympathies for you and your family. x

The heel - yes, kicking it is a lot harder than just clicking it.

Yes polo - very sad. Much sympathy to you and yours.

There are many of us not far from an alcohol problem.

I'm lucky - it seems to be losing its attraction for me as I age.

If I carried on drinking at the rate I had been at one time...
Don't blame me - I voted remain :con
