According to Wikipedia, “Addiction was a term used to describe a devotion, attachment, dedication, inclination, etc. Nowadays, however, the term addiction is used to describe a recurring compulsion by an individual to engage in some specific activity, despite harmful consequences to the individual’s health, mental state or social life. The term is often reserved for drug addictions but it is sometimes applied to other compulsions, such as problem gambling, and compulsive overeating. Factors that have been suggested as causes of addiction include genetic, biological / pharmacological and social factors.”
Previously, addiction only pertained to the “drugs” kind. But now, addiction doesn’t just mean substance abuse. It also could be an addiction to gambling, alcohol, sex or the internet.
It isn’t easy dealing with an addiction – for the person and for his/her family. A lot of families or relationships break down because of one person’s addiction.
