Thank you almightybob1. I didn't have to iterate that cause and correlation risk confusion here by employing the term `risk-factors,` because you elaborated for me! It`s all semantics anyway, not a big deal.

Being imaginative and intellectual seems to indicate that one may be at higher risk of addiction and/or mental/emotional issues in general.

Idk how widely agreed upon that is, but some of the quickest(mentally, obviously), most empathetic, most creative, most well spoken individuals I've ever known have I met through drugs and rehab-type programs. I`ve known very few unintelligent addicts.

That`s why the notion of addiction/habituation = lack of intellect is so frustrating. Now, many know better than to just make assumptions like that, but for some they never gave it much thought and have accepted that as fact. I think that`s why they`d include something like the above; parents who aren`t familiar with addiction might think `oh, my son is too smart to let something like that happen. He knows better, and I wouldn`t let it happen`. I`m sure they`re pointing out it can happen to anyone, including and especially smart, creative ppl.
