Is it possible to become addicted to cosmetic procedures?

Yes: Yes. I think there are really two sub types of patients. Some that just are really obsessed with looking better and doing all the latest procedures.

What is the medical definition of an addict?

There really isn't 1: Because "addict" is not a medical term, and actually our field is coming around to eliminate the words "addict' and "alcoholic" from our vocabularies.

Is it true that once an addict always an addict?

Yes?: From a biological standpoint yes in my opinion, people can be sober 10, 20 or more years and still relapse severely if the substance is reintroduced. From a recovery standpoint identifying as an addict is very helpful for most. It keeps people in recovery; grounded, humble and reminds them where they were. Some don't take this same view which may work for them, but most can't escape their biology. ...Read more

I'm addicted the master bastion I'm want to control it..

Please repost: And explain what you mean by "addicted" and what you mean by "control."

Could I become addicted by trying a little recreational weed?

Possible, yes: Likely no. If a person never takes the first drink or drug, they can never get dependent on it. Addiction is more than the amount of drug that is used; it is when the drug hijacks your life, you are no longer in control of it, it causes harm in your life, yet you don't stop, you try to stop it, and maybe you can for a while, but you go back to it. Use despite harm and loss of control are major. ...Read more

My family thinks I am an addict, but I don't agree. Whose right?

Probably them: Most addicts have very strong defense mechanisms. Denial, literally they just can't see the problem. They justify, minimize, rationalize, intellectualize, lots more " izes".
One component of addiction is conflict with others. I don't know you, so all I have is my knowledge of how addiction works. I recommend finding a local counselor or other professional to help all of you figure it out. Good luck. ...Read more

Can someone be addicted to music?

Interesting question: The idea of true "addiction" involves using more of a substance or doing more of a behavior intended, despite clear negative effects on health or aspects of life like relationships, work, school, etc. Do you abdicate important responsibilities like being a parent or spouse, in favor of music? Music can be a very nice part of life. Can be used to "tune out" others too, if headphones always on. ...Read more
