Definitions: I believe you are interchanging physical addiction with dependence which generally means that the removal of the subject will cause some type of withdrawal syndrome possibly even seizures for example. Addiction itself is a complex process that involves some activity or substance use along with adverse consequences such as criminal activity or harm to others or your relationship with others.
