I've been thinking about how drugs and religion are essentially the same thing.
People who are into them refuse to hear logic or reason as to why they shouldn't.
They hang out with people who are into it also.
Both have people on the streets peddling it.
Most people give a large sum of their income for it, and some give everything they have for it.
People fight wars and die over them.
They are illegal in certain countries, and legal in others.
People who grow up with it are more likely to do it.
Stores capitalize on paraphernalia for them.
Both can push loved ones, friends, etc, away.
Both are very psychological in how they affect people.
People try to free those addicted from them.
Those are just some of the similarities I can think of. An article I found online. The comments are the best part...
