How do you know if you’re addicted to something? Like what does addiction actually mean?

It means not having control over something, or when you think it’s controlling you. This could be anything really but alcohol and drugs are the most often ones talked about.

Being addicted to something means that in order to get or do that thing, you could cause yourself harm or harm others. Addiction is when something harmful takes over your life.
