    You can only get addicted to substances that contain some kind of drug. For example, Coke, Pepsi, or any other kind of soda with caffeine in it, can become addictive because caffeine is a drug. Drugs, even after only one use, will form receptors in the brain. This will then make the body build up a tolerance for the drug. If you think you are addicted to some kind of food, for example, crackers... You have an obsession for crackers. Addiction is when you NEED a drug for you brain to function properly. An obsession is when you really want something because you like it so much, but it doesn't really mean that you are addicted to it. Also, addictions can be treated, but will never go away, unlike obsessions. I hope this helps!!!

    If by "addicted" you mean refusing to accept blame for a lack of self-control... then yeah, you can be addicted to anything.

    Some of the shit that people blame "addiction" for is ridiculous.

    Sex addiction? Come fucking on... we ALL love getting laid. And the vast majority manage to maintain some balance between our desire for sex and our responsibilities as human beings.

    And then there are the people who jerk off on the salad bar at Wendys.

    anything can become addictive...when anything consumes ur life...and u live around it rather than living a well-rounded life..u are in trouble..

    But is that an "addiction" or just a complete and utter lack of self-control?

    Are fat people actually addicted to food? What about Michael Jackson? Is he addicted to little boys? Shouldn't we feel bad for him? He's not a dirty pervert. HE'S SICK!!! HE NEEDS TREATMENT!!! PEDO-REHAB EVEN!!

    Things like drug and alcohol addiction have scientific backing, and there's existing proof of genetic disposition being passed from parents to children... but most of this other stuff is just ridiculous.

    I believe anything that takes over a person's life to the point it impacts it negatively can be called an addiction. The overriding quality of each is that it makes you feel momentarily better the first time or few, but overall makes life worse with prolonged abuse. Besides drugs, here are a few I can think of:

    Alcohol
    Cigarettes
    Sex
    Metabolic Steroids
    Adrenaline (the high you get when doing something scary, wrong, etc.)
    Food
    Attention (Such as Munchhausen syndrome)
    Nasal Spray (believe it or not...)
    Religious zeal
    Bulimic behavior
    These are just a few.

    I'm severely addicted to TWILIGHT!!!, hot cocoa, and my iPod (naming 3). Addiction partly comes from the mind. You think you're addicted, and so you are. My strongest addiction is to Twilight. That's my favorite, because it's a GOOD kind of addiction. (And 'cause of Edward!)

    Some of us are born with a genetic disposition towards obsessive thinking and compulsive actions that can lead to addiction, whether it's food, slot machines, or heroin. Maybe 10% of the world's population have a marked proclivity towards addiction, then you meld into "problem users" and "weekend warriors" and on to ordinary people who are clueless about addiction. Beware of absolutes - there is no black or white; there is only an infinite shade of gray...

    I believe anything can be addictive. If things aren't kept in modertion, they're likely to creep up and cause you problems in one way or another.
