    Crack/Oreos aside (hydrox fan in mourning myself) the addiction/unhealthy lifestyle/"uneducated" reputation are all aspects that detract from recruiting quality help. My daughter has faced many people who are expecting her to be injured/assaulted/drugged~ pressured into drugs. Living out of a hotel isn't ideal for a healthy diet. Conversely lots of walking vs being locked to a cubicle computer has made staying fit easier.

    I do believe that she has altered her dating prospects to less educated, less wealthy due to leaving school and working construction.

    The conservative figure is 20% of the total population is using or on some type of drug other than nicotine, which includes over the counter or
    any under the counter drugs and lets not forget alcohol.

    The internet is likely the most addictive and productivity destroyer while simultaneously providing incredible opportunity for those that can use it wisely.

    That is not new news-that was said at the internets inception. but the internet combined with drugs an alcohol-that is the biggest addiction.
