What is addiction?
If you have ever wondered "What is an addict?" or "what is addiction?" and worried that addiction might be affecting you or someone you love, watch this video, where I describe the symptoms of addiction.
Other addiction symptoms include needing to use more of a substance to get the same effect (called building tolerance).
Remember, you can get addicted to all sorts of things - it's not just alcohol and drugs.
You can also get addicted to sugar, caffeine and many other things. But it is only an addiction if the symptoms described in the video apply. Addictions develop, though, so you should monitor your behaviour to check whether you may be in danger of addiction taking hold.
