your Definition of addiction

so I’m wondering…

How would you define addiction?

I mean if you had to come up with your own definition of it.

This is a question we were asked last night during class.

I am curious as to what peoples answers are on it.

  1. I would say feeling like you can’t get through the day without something and have to have it or you have an extreme physical/emotional reaction to the idea of not having it.

  2. But of course there’s also physical addiction… they say that after 3 days of not smoking the physical addiction is gone, indicating that there is a chemical dependency.

      1. Apparently so. Don’t know if it’s true as I’ve never smoked and it may be popular myth but I’ve heard it a couple of times.

  3. It’s something that limits your freedom, or just totally takes it away from you, that can take away your personal dignity, that veils all your life goals and ambitions and is above all your relationships with people, something that can totally change your mind.
