I consider addiction to be doing something you don't want to be doing that you know is unhealthy for you - and continuing to do it when you'd rather stop. Another way to look at addiction is that what you are addicted to has become more important than God. This makes the things we are addicted to false gods or idols. We become addicted when we attempt to fulfill our God-given (good) desires with our substance of choice, instead of allowing God to meet our longings.

Addiction is the result of an individual attempting to change their emotional state - all addiction involves an individual attempting to self-medicate from an uncomfortable mental state whether that be boredom, lack of meaning, depression, anxiety, or something else. The choice of self medication may be alcohol or another substance, sexual behaviors, or something else. After the self-medication wears off the old mental state returns and the individual may be caught in a repetitive pattern of feeling shame or blame and being caught in an ongoing pattern of lapse and and relapse behaviors. Therapy involves identifying and eliminating triggers that result in lapse and relapse behaviors.
