Winston is tortured, beaten and drugged for his rebellion against the Brotherhood. Physical pain dissolves his emotional resolve; he is a broken man who succumbed to the desire of self-preservation. It has nothing to do with what he wants but rather his discovery that the Brotherhood is physically stronger and will always prevail.
