Re: Psychoanalysis

In general, what Buddhism considers latent are afflictions (kleṣa), termed in their latent form, anuśaya. There are 6 basic anuśaya: attachment, anger, pride, ignorance, false views, and doubt.

Re: Intoxication Symptoms

If you do not want to drink coffee, fine. But it is not an intoxicant, a madana. Not even tobacco is included since it is not intoxicating, since nicotine is a stimulant, like caffeine. So I would guess something that clouds or distracts the mind; no textual source for that assumption though, and c...

Re: millions die of drug addiction

the victim of addiction must have a psychological predisposition to begin with perhaps? Genetics and epigenetics platy a decent part in it as does neuroplasticity in response to drug use.
