Addiction is characterised by excessive consumption of a substance (e.g. alcohol, cocaine, cannabis) or engagement in an activity (e.g. gambling, gadgets, sex) to the extent that it begins to negatively impact one’s health, responsibilities and relationships.

  • Inability to control or limit consumption or behaviour
  • Neglect of other activities and responsibilities
  • Shaky hands, lack of sleep, feeling anxious or irritable in absence of the substance or behaviour
