Hi All, 2Tone here

I have been thinking about all the things that influence us on a daily basis and to me, it seems that the most important thing today seems to be ‘image’; look at all the models, people like Jordan, footballers, the X factor, wags.

I have come across this mindful talk about this sort of thing, and it explains how society have hidden things that could lead us to become addicted to anything, whether it id drugs, alcohol, clothes, shoes or food.

The mini lecture breaks this down and makes it a bit more clear:
