“Addiction” is used when one is obsessed with or feels as if they need something. It is often a psychological condition or a compulsive behavior. It is not good to have an addiction because it causes you to become “dependent” on something. Those with “addictions” feel as if they have no control and they cannot resist the things that they are “addicted” to.
Example: He struggles with an “addiction” to drugs. She is “addicted” to working out.
