Short Thought 9 (addiction)

One of the better definitions I’ve heard of addiction is: any behavior done to excess that a person wants to stop or should stop, but can’t on their own.

This seems like a good measuring stick, whether the subject of excess is food or smoking or caffeine or alcohol or drugs or work or hoarding or spending or relationships or cat-owning or the internet or exercise or gambling or… anything.
