Who is Responsible?


Addictions are the product of the sufferer’s mental problems. I believed so in the past, but is it true? There are several forms of addictions in Japan. Gambling, alcohol, drugs etc. Most noteworthy is gambling addiction which is a major problem. The Ministry of Health and Labor Welfare in Japan made a study and found out that there were 5,360,000 gambling addicts in 2014. (4)Binge drinking is not so major problem compared with gambling. However, both might be related. These problems are fundamentally difficult to solve if we (1) do without understanding how the brain works. The most important thing is they should find out what the main problem is, but most families can’t (3-2)drag out the truth from addicted family members. These patients can’t be expected to allow the bad situation to (2)drag on. In my opinion, Those addictions are created by the business industry, which lacks appropriate regulation, especially in Japan. The government should think more about protecting human rights and health than improving the economy and protecting big companies.
