You may have heard of people becoming addicted to gambling, video games, sex, food, or shopping. Any behavior that gets in the way of your ability to meet your obligations or maintain balance in your life can be defined as an addiction. Several factors can drive this behavior, such as an underlying mood or anxiety disorder, coupled with a personality disorder or an impulse control disorder. In some cases, the behavior can be caused by an underlying physical condition or a medication.
