The term addiction has come to refer to a wide and complex range of behaviours. While addiction most commonly refers to compulsive use of substances, including alcohol, prescription and illegal drugs, cigarettes and food, it’s also used to describe excessive indulgence in activities such as work, exercise, shopping, sex, the Internet and gambling.
