An addiction is a chronic illness caused by the recurring use of a chemical substance or a compulsive practice of a certain behavior which directly affects the functions of the brain and the individual’s ability to control resulting consequences.
Obsession, loss of control, suppression and denial are some of the evident symptoms that some people who are suffering from this illness manifest. Their interpersonal relationships, work, finances, along with mental, physical and emotional health are affected. In spite of all this, they are not able to stop consuming or acting in a self-destructive way.
