The goverment has found a way to save people from dying, the ones rich enough to obtain the procedure. We are made into robots, everything but our body stripped of us. Not being able to feel emotion, we subsitute is for temporary feelings in the same way we used to use drugs. Any more than a couple at a time and we could overrun our system, too often the same drug and our "bodies" dosen't recognize it At least its better than dying...but not much better.
Drug addiction not only effects the person who's using but family, friends, boss, coworkers, even pets. More-or-less EVERYONE involved in the users life is affected too.

They are estranged from their families and their neighbors. It should tell us something that in healthy societies drug use is celebrative, convivial, and occasional, whereas among us it is lonely, shameful, and addictive. We need drugs, apparently, because we have lost each other. http://www.healthyplace.com/addictions/
