    What Is Addiction?

    Addiction can be used both clinically and metaphorically, but the primary focus here is on addiction as defined by

    compulsive behavior where the "drug" of choice, whether it be cocaine, alcohol, gambling, food, or cigarettes, has

    become the controlling factor in a person's life. Addiction is characterized by a driving need to engage in the activity

    or take the substance regardless of the consequences. It may involve cravings and withdrawal when the drug or

    activity is not accessible. Addiction is a progressive disease, meaning if you do not address and treat it, it will

    dominate more and more of a person's life and lead to more and more negative consequences.
