Addiction can be physical or mental or a combination of both. Either way it is chemical based whether it's in our brain or the whole body. Both can be debilitating. But not always.
Example: I'm addicted to caffeine in the morning. It's mental but I get headaches if I don't drink my coffee.

It's not debilitating and is quite enjoyable to me. Why stop? As I said in my original reply... It helps to have an good understanding of how addiction works.

It's not simple and is most often quite quite complex as in pedophilia.
