Default Re: [Basic] Disadvantage of the week: Addiction and Alcoholism

Chemical dependency is only partly connected to addictions.
When I was on anti-anxiety medication, running out suddenly was very bad news. Withdrawal was horrible. But I wasn't addicted.
When it stopped working for me, I tapered down without incident.

But back in my Diet Pepsi days, I was mildly addicted. In that I would scrounge change from relatives' floors to get just one more soda. I wouldn't steal from furniture or wallets, but I would push the boundaries of my morality.
