Well first of all what is addiction? Historically addiction has always been in reference to drugs or alcohol. But there are more than just addictions to drug or alcohol. An addiction that is becoming more and more talked about in the mainstream is addiction to internet or computer games. Internet and games could seem like a drug but they aren't. So how could addiction only be defined as involving either drugs or alcohol. These addictions are categoriazed as Behavioral Addictions. The first addiction i ever experienced (at least in my memory) was a Behavioral Addiction to biting the inside of my mouth. I would do it constantly until i would bleed and my mouth would be sore. This was at a very early age probably of 5 or 6 when i didn't have as much self control. I remember struggling to stop doing this for a couple months but it was a tough habit to break. It was the first addiction i got over in the long list of my life.
