By definition: Addictions do not just go away. Once you are addicted to something, it does not go away. You can learn to control it, but must always stay vigilant or it will come back at a higher level than before you stopped using the substance. Treatment for drug addiction: narcotics anonymous, in patient detox, out patient therapy, don't be afraid to get help to overcome it.
