you can stop troping anytime you want to I know...

TV Tropes is my anti-drug, 'cause when you're addicted to TV Tropes, you don't have time for drugs. Or on getting the money to buy them.

Actually it's probably psychological addiction, in contrast to drugs which are physical addictions. :P

Of course, that doesn't mean that psychological addictions can't be just as addicting as physical addictions. They just have to work harder at securing the addiction. All drugs do is take the fast route of jamming chemicals directly (well, almost directly) into your brain.

Yes, psychological addictions can be more dangerous, and fatal. Take anorexia for example.
From what I heard (on TV), psychological addictions will often go with physical, so what makes drug or smoking addictions so strong is that they're in part psychological.

the problem with psychological addictions is that they are in your head. often they have a physical component. for instance, pain releases endorphins, which feel good. Unlike more physical addictions, such as drugs, you can't really take away the cause, or detox effectively.

Now, I could be wrong, but psychological addictions are the "But I want to" part of an addiction. Drug addictions tend to have both, whereas stuff like WoW only has the psychological component. You can't tell me you can't take WoW away from a WoW addict.

Psychological = The craving
Physical = Sweating and tossing and turning in bed, nausea, etc
You can't say one is worse than the other. I don't mean "Aw guys you can say that thats mean". I mean its just downright wrong. I mean, it depends how long you've done whatever it is you're hooked on, what you're hooked on, if it leans more towards physical or psychological addiction, what stage of your recovery you're on, hell, it comes down to what you had for breakfast and your own individual self.

you may be able to take wow away physically, but you can't stop the person from thinking about, planning, etc. too much of it goes on in the head.

to be honest, I can't really argue much one way or the other, since I only know this because I used to know a psychologist who dealt with addictive behaviors.

What he told me is that the psychological extent of addiction is worse in many cases, and does not just include the craving for something, but phisological changes caused by the mental cravings, such as endorphins and such--which can be easier to become addicted to and harder to rid yourself of because it's all internal.

that being said, that is the extent of my knowledge, and so I won't engage in any further argument about. because the chances of my coming out sounding like an idiot are much higher than normal-- and the chances in a narmal conversation are pretty darn high anyway. :-?

Yeah what I know I've pretty much learned from TV shows, so I'm certainly not an expert.
One thing that every of psychologists that I've heard stressed is that psychological addiction is worse and harder to get rid of than physical. The thing that makes it moot is that many addictions which we consider physical, like supstance abuse, contain psychological component, so we usually think that if drugs are hard to get rid of, it's all physical, when in actuality it's not.
I suppose people won't always take it seriously if their friend spends xx hours a day playing WoW, which is where part of danger comes from.

The way I understand it psychological addiction is sometimes interpreted through chemical processes in the brain (lots of things in brain department are half-theoretical, of course). There's an actual chemical reward through some sort of conditioning, except in this case chemicals are produced by your own brain, not ingested, so it's not just "but I want to" thing.
