In this video, we will summarize how the brain changes and how changes occur from abstinent living. You don't always have to be an "addict" or have an addiction.

The brain changes, even in significant damage to the brain such as stroke. The brain is actually quite "plastic" and even evidence of neurogenesis is found here:

How does knowing the brain can change and that you do not have to always be an "addict" affect you?
