now just pour that into a massive jug, and mix, then pour that into a larger jug, and mix, and do so until there are 100 units of plain water for every unit of that solution
and it'll be perfect

Personally, I feel the 'quick fixes' are actually making the problem worse. It's now trendy to be on something, and that's just wrong. It's trendy to "depressed" so you can take some pills. I doubt half the people on anti-depressants are actually depressed to the point where they need the pills to go on.

My wife has had some pretty serious bouts of depression during her life, both because of genetic factors and because of lifestyle factors. She's never gone to get pills to 'fix it,' because she knows that if she doesn't shake it off herself, she's not going to be able to.

It's obvious that this sort of thing makes the problem worse.

Consider this: In the past 20 years, america has gotten way, way fatter. Also in the past 20 years, we've seen an explosion of 'quick fix' diets and pills to fix the problem and let you lose a ton of weight very, very fast. If those quick fixes worked, they'd work themselves out of business, and america wouldn't be fat anymore. But america is getting fatter, not skinnier, so obviously the quickfix diets/medicines don't work, and in fact, may be contributing to the weight gain, since some of the people might actually work at getting skinny if there wasn't a pill to do it for them.

------------

Once depression becomes as easy and infallable to diagnose as, say, a broken arm, then I will agree with doctors and whatnot being able to diagnose depression and prescribe pills to supress it without getting second and possibly third opinions. But since it's really just their opinion, then I don't think that a single doctor or psychiatrist should be able to do it; at least, not to the extent that they can now.

----------

If you use pain medicine when you are in pain, the risk of addiction (even with things like morphine) are virtually zero.

If you use pain medicine when you are not in pain, the risk of addiction is very high.

The reason for this is because when you're in pain, you use the medicine to feel normal, and when you're not in pain, you body doesn't want the medicine anymore, because you already feel normal. But if you're not in pain and take the medicine, your body feels better, and when the medicine is gone, you have to take more to feel normal, thus addiction.

It's the same thing with anti-depressants. If you take it while you are depressed, you won't want/need them when you arn't depressed. If you take them when you're not depressed, you'll get addicted.

constant happiness sounds nice
although you may have to start questioning what is drug induced and what isn't
