hey there’s actually no such thing as a good or bad addict! you can’t “support” rich white suburban kids with depression who had dental surgery and then got hooked on opiates if you’re going to ignore homeless addicts or black addicts or addicts whose use began recreationally or addicts who have cycled in and out of treatment centers or literally any person suffering from a substance use disorder, at all, ever
Do you truly believe kids no longer go outside because devices are bad or addictive or another reason? Some of the ones I have come up with is that they now know what they can't do, and the stories they make for playing outside are lacklustre compared to what you see now. Another thought is that the wild and appeal of a quickly fading evil omens is the issue.
