Addiction... my views

In a post from yesterday I made the observation

Addiction is the relying use of some 'thing' called Xto make some other 'thing' called Y 'go away'. It doesn't fix Y, and it doesn't give any positive results. Further, it probably in the long run makes Y worse and probably adds other new and different Ys in the process. Finally, it is an addiction if any use of 'X' causes reliance to return.
