Well, I pose a question to you - would you be addicted to something without being obsessed?



 
I never thought of Facebook all the time.. LOL Yeah, it's obsession that leads to addiction I guess :\
 
But then, do people get obsessed with cigarettes, drugs to fall into the gravity of addiction?
 
I'm confused, papa.. LOL

Good question! I think that's where we got our answer! LOL  Obsession applies only to behavioural addiction, because it's mainly psychological. The reason why we get addicted to some behavioura patterns is because of the obsession. But there is no obsession in substance addiction. It takes over our system, and it makes the system obsessed rather than our minds. It creates that sense of dependance which trickles down to or should I say, up towards our minds. I think thats how it is, atleast.



Also is cigarette smoking only a substance addicitoon, or is it also a behavioural addiction? or does it start off as the latter and ends up as the former?

LOL

I'm addicted to modern family.. I just subscribed to fx.. season 5 is starting.. lets see how it is..

I was addicted to 2.5 men, but it sucks now... charlie sheen looks bored with his role. and angus sounds like a car engine with his breaking voice Dead


haha.. the problem i have when i start watching shows like Dexter, 24 and Prison Break.. is that they finish on a cliff hanger.. so i'm always putting the next episode straight after LOL


hmm I find most serious shows like prison break, heroes and 24 boring. I like the mystery ones with a touch of humor like monk and castle. Psych too, I love it. One amazing thing is that sitcoms haven't deteriorated like music,film and professional wrestling entertainment.  Big smile

Good post! Big smile But, but, but... how do you know you're obsessed with internet or addicted to it?? LOL Or are you saying that obsession and behavior addiction are one and the same?
 
Yes, yes, substance addiction has some psychological influence too, so, I'm guessing substance addiction is behavioral addiction to some extent. It starts of as BOTH behavioral and substance addiction(as a substance is being taken in) and ends up as pure substance addiction, when the addiction turns into a habit of chronic intake of smoke.
