A soul-destroying addiction that changes people’s personality and the values they live by. Greed, recognition, attention, love and admiration from working longer and longer hours replace self-satisfaction of a job well done and intrinsic self-worth and esteem. Family member relationships are strained, distorted and often result in broken homes. Eventually, the loss of health, personal and professional integrity follow. Unfettered capitalism, greed, and worshipping success and money feed this addiction.
