Addiction Simulation
Addiction Simulation begins 10/19

An addiction simulation activity allows students to experience firsthand some of the physical, cognitive,
social, and emotional experiences of someone who is addicted to a drug. During a specified 48-hour
period, every time the students have a drink of any liquid, an ice cube must be in their beverage. They are
not allowed to let people who are not involved in the simulation see them drinking a beverage with ice
cubes or even procuring ice cubes since, for the purpose of this exercise, we are considering the use of ice
cubes to be illegal and socially unacceptable.

To simulate the obsession associated with drug abuse, students must keep an hourly journal (waking
hours only) in which they answer three questions: Are you thirsty now? Where is your next ice cube
coming from? What is your plan to satisfy your craving? They also tie a piece of red yarn around
their wrists to simulate the needle tracks of an addict and to remind them of their participation in the
simulation. They must keep the yarn hidden from others. When the 48 hours are over they write a freeform
paper that describes their feelings, thoughts, and reactions to the exercise. They turn in their hourly
logs along with their reaction papers.
