Historically, addiction has been defined as physical and/or psychological dependence on psychoactive substances (for example alcohol, tobacco, heroin, caffeine and other drugs) which cross the blood-brain barrier once ingested, temporarily altering the chemical milieu of the brain. Broadly, addiction is defined as the continued use of a mood altering addictive substance or behaviors despite adverse consequences. Some defining characteristics of addiction include impaired control over the substance/behavior, preoccupation with the substance/behavior, continued use despite consequences, and denial.
Addiction can also be viewed as a continued involvement with a substance or activity despite the negative consequences associated with it. Pleasure, enjoyment or relief from actual or perceived ailments would have originally been sought; however, over a period of time involvement with the substance or activity is needed to feel normal. Some psychology professionals and many laypeople now mean 'addiction' to include abnormal psychological dependency on such things as gambling, video games, food, sex, pornography, computers, internet, work, exercise, adrenaline, idolizing, watching TV or certain types of non-pornographic videos, spiritual obsession, self-injury and shopping.
The American Society of Addiction Medicine begins their definition of addiction by describing it as "a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry."
Well, my words would sound fanatic, but I’m not..!
Despite how I agree on the role of greed and criminals to extend the addiction, I disagree on social obligations towards those miserable persons.. Despite how I agree on their lost-self-control, I'm not ready to allocate my hardly-gained taxation to bail their insanity.. Despite I agree on how many of them are smart, talented or gifted, I only accept such a definition on who kept awake and productive till their last moment of life, rather than who build their wealth from our false happiness and quick moments of joy..
Those "Addicted-Celebraties" sale the virtual reality to people who are addicted to dreams or others seek temporary escape.. Most of those ill-fated are musicians, players or artists, none of them was a scientist, an entrepreneur or a politician.. Fine arts were always tools to elevate our practice of epistemic life, not to load it with fractured philosophies..
This would tell where the lock is..
It is their chosen path of illusion, where Mankind speechlessly believes controlling the universe.. Look around how many tells you to control your own destiny, while none tells you why you had been created for..
Simply, who promotes the addictions; promotes the materialism too..
Simply they know how to stimulate your senses to be out of them..!!
When a person creates his own referrals.. When he empowers the body apart from the soul.. Look around on this chosen materialistic-world, which most parents feel pity for their kids, where poverty is not seriously fought..
We, the Mankind, chose to be disgracefully ignorant, arrogant and intolerant, despite the glowing swift victories and media showbiz.. Once we created our own manuals, we are governed by preceptions and heading to chaotic disasters..
We simply don’t learn..
Therefore, when darkness fills the sights, and confusion spiral the brains; we are unable to see by hearts..
This was the prescription for all dead civilizations..
The true demise between life and death..
