The word “addiction” is often used to refer to any behaviour that is out of control in some way.

You can be addicted to many things in life; a TV show, shopping or food. The word is also used to explain the experience of withdrawal when a substance or behavior is stopped. Drug addiction is a very complex disease that can affect both our behavior and the way our brains function. Withdrawal from drugs or alcohol is also a very unpleasant experience and sometimes a dangerous medical situation.

One simple way of describing addiction is the presence of the 4 Cs:
Craving
Control: Loss of control over amount or frequency of use 
Compulsion to use
Consequences: Use despite harmful consequences.
