Losing Control


John Stossel's latest ABC News special, "Losing Control: Help me I can't help myself," will air on Monday, April 21 at 8 pm eastern. It examines addictions and compulsive behaviors involving drugs, food, gambling, shopping and more. Are these diseases or matters of choice? Are we as powerless against our urges as the addiction industry claims?

By the way: Jacob Sullum's classic interview with Stossel is available here. And Stossel's addiction special was produced by Ted Balaker, who recently joined the staff of Reason Foundation, the non-profit that publishes Reason.
