What is the difference between psychological addiction and physical?

Well some drugs your body will actually go into withdrawal if you give up, and some won’t have that effect, but it doesn’t mean you aren’t addicted. If it’s a big compulsion in your life, the difference between the two doesn’t really matter.

I think with psychological you’ve led yourself into a set of beliefs where you think you need something – whether that’s to perform at work, or to be in a social situation or to get to sleep. Physical can be more harmful, cos your body actually needs whatever it is, it has built a dependency on it.
