I asked ChatGPT: “Is illegal drug addiction a choice?”

This is the answer that it gave:

“The question of whether drug addiction is a choice or not is complex and controversial. It is widely accepted in the medical and scientific communities that addiction is a chronic medical condition that changes the structure and function of the brain. People with addiction have difficulty controlling their use of drugs and often continue to use despite negative consequences.”

“However, the initial decision to use drugs is often a choice. Substance abuse and addiction can be influenced by a range of factors, including genetics, environment, and mental health. Some people may be more susceptible to addiction due to their biology, while others may be exposed to drugs and find it difficult to stop using.”

“It is important to understand that addiction is a complex issue and should not be seen as a personal failing or a matter of willpower. People with addiction need access to evidence-based treatment and support to overcome their condition and reclaim their lives.”
