It is not heroin or cocaine that makes one an addict, it is the need to escape from a harsh reality. There are more television addicts, more baseball and football addicts, more movie addicts, and certainly more alcohol addicts in this country than there are narcotics addicts.

    یہ ہیروئن یا کوکین نہیں ہے جو کسی کو عادی بنا دیتا ہے ، سخت حقیقت سے بچنے کی ضرورت ہے۔ ٹیلیویژن کے زیادہ سے زیادہ عادی افراد ، زیادہ بیس بال اور فٹ بال کے عادی افراد ، فلمی عادی افراد اور یقینی طور پر اس ملک میں نشہ کے عادی افراد کی نسبت زیادہ شراب کے نشے کے عادی افراد ہیں۔
