Re: Addiction to exercise

(For avoidance of doubt - Tongue firmly in cheek).

I think most of the population already have an inkling about this addiction.
Most people know that experimentation even in small or moderate amounts with anything can lead to life-long addiction.
That why I think there is an understandable healthy aversion to exercise !!
