pretty simple.  what in your mind is which?  and why the difference, if any, between the 2?

i did choose this forum specifically, but if you need to move it go for it :smile:

A habit is something you do, because you're used to it. An addiction is an obession....you can't think about anything else, you don't want anything else: you're totally consumed and dominated by whatever you're addicted to......and being without it is pure hell.

Addiction is habit but habit may or may not be addiction.

Habits could be good or bad and are repeated behavior.

Bad habits could be relatively harmless and just annoying, like a golf swing grooved to slice. Or, they could be harmful like driving recklessly. Bad habits could be easy to change or hard to change.

Addiction is a bad habit that is hard to change, and usually has harmful implications for the addict.

Stopping an addiction first begins with realizing that one has an addiction, followed by the desire to quit, followed by a change in lifestyle/attitude, followed by the actual quitting.

Take quitting smoking, for example. The physical dependency of nicotine, while strong, is not the real problem in quitting. The real problem is until the smoker has a strong and unwavering desire to quit, it won't happen. Therefore, the many people who are "trying" to quit smoking cigarettes. Some have been "trying" to quit for years. As Yoda would say, don't TRY, DO!

Yeah, as bad as the physical WD from opiates is......it just adds to the misery. The mental/emotional aspects are what really hurt.

a habit is a mental addiction (although often subtle)

and yet an addiction is a detrimental habit

so really I guess it comes down to semantics like usual :smile:

One thing is that an addiction is almost always a BAD thing ... there is another word for a GOOD addiction, perhaps it is virtue.
