Umm idk... Neuroscience?
No addict has a subconscious that is making them take drugs, this is junk/bunk. Educate yourselves about the science of addiction and brain chemistry/higher dopamine levels, don't spew offensive BS about addiction and expect people to believe it

 

Not offhand, but its fairly winnable analytically.  Assuming you're talking about the subconscious, its difficult to explain contradictions between desires and meta-desires with any model of the psyche as a unified entity.  For example, if there was no subconscious, why couldn't an addict, who both desired the addictive substance and desired not to desire that same substance, simply decide to stop desiring it?

What is this subconscious you speak of? The unconscious? The preconscious?
