Louis, Remind me to box your ears next time I see you. Just because I said addiction is a disease not a lifestyle choice [“Postmarks,” May 13] doesn't mean I want to ban smoking, prohibit liquor, or further criminalize drugs, etc. You are adding to my arguments your own paranoid fantasies. I voted against the smoking ban by the way. Addiction is a disease that subverts the individual's ability to choose, among other things. I don't think smokers need help unless they want it. Cigarette smokers can have integrity and individuality; crack smokers will come to a place where they have neither. So once again, we find our words useless to describe a phenomena as multifaceted as addiction. Perhaps our wonderful civilization has come to the place where we need many words for the concept. The Eskimos had their snow.
