Mayor Angelo Tsirekas invites you to the Five Dock Library to meet author councillor and Dr Tanveer Ahmed talk about addictions.
From video games to drugs to fast food, we live in an age of unending novelty and stimulation.
The boundaries of addiction are hotly debated, but there can be little doubt that dependence upon substances and instantaneous pleasures are one of the most problematic social and medical issues.
Psychiatrist, author of memoir "The Exotic Rissole" and City of Canada Bay councillor Dr Tanveer Ahmed talks of his experiences treating the addicted and its broader social implications.
