Short answer: Addiction is : 1. Loss of control. You can't stop taking them. 2. Use despite harm. Negative effects do not cause you to stop. Most people after long term use will also have: 1. Tolerance. Less and less effect 2. Withdrawal. A physiological response. See you doctor and ask him for assistance.
