Addiction is a condition in people who have convinced themselves that they cannot live without something or someone. It is usually a long-term condition that is present for many reasons. For some it is present to make them feel better or satisfied e.g. by eating chocolate, the need to accumulate money and gamble, in others to forget their problems e.g. alcohol and drugs, in the third to show their maturity e.g. alcohol and smoking, in the fourth to show that e.g. the person allows daily mental and physical abuse (stimulating the feelings of the victim) etc. Addictions are varied and all encourage negative feelings, negative behavior and the breakdown of the person in psychicical and physical terms.
Addicts have many different causes and many different consequences that are the reason for their addiction. Most people become addicted at a young age due to lack of understanding of the environment, difficult life situation, underestimation by parents and the environment, or situations in which young people feel threatened and insecure.
