Is this correct?

(Thank you for answering, now here is a cute dog)
A: I see what you mean now :D

1. He has had an addiction to alchohol.
2. He had an addiction to alchohol.

I think that they both mean that he had an addiction, but doesn't anymore.
They are very similar, but the main difference between them is that #1 is more passive, and #2 is more active. What this means is that if you say #1, you sound a little more indifferent than if you say #2. However, it's a very subtle difference and isn't really definite in normal conversation.

Good question!
