@cwallisI understand that perspective and I agree with it for the most part. To be fair though by definition, you can indeed be addicted to anything. I think that's one of Jayce's points. Anything that you use towards your own escapism for whatever reason.C'mon guys, just because they use the word "addiction" doesn't mean we're all young Whitney and Bobbies...Definition:a.The condition of being habitually or compulsively occupied with or or involved in something.I'm almost addicted to WoW.com. I haven't played WoW since September and yet the first thing I do, impulsively and sometimes compulsively, go straight to the site. I could be intending to go to amazon but nope... I come here. I can't avoid coming to WoW.com at least once when I have the browser open. I almost have to. I don't know why.Is it the end of the world? Heck No man. (I just like being informed) However some addictions tend to be harmful to individuals or those nearby. When I start neglecting other responsibilities to satisfy an urge, that's easily an addiction. (Like the report that I need to produce right after the last few words.)A habit can be formed with nearly anything and lead to an addiction.
