Because addictions by definition are poor use of resources yet maybe there are some "good" things that we can be addicted to.. in the search to solve addiction should we look at the substance or the user? What is more intuitive?

Capitalists are addicted to money. Does that mean money is bad or capitalism?

My first thought is no... even ifs its a good substance there is this thing called over indulgence... Like excercising is wonderful for the body but to much is bad for your health... You can be addicted to love and it hurts you in the end to me its like a catch 22 if that makes sense...damn if you do damn if you don't

So does this mean that nothing is good without measure? Because Lover and Exercise can be great for a person too much hurts, but it is the addiction that is bad.. does this mean that everything that we think is good is manifestation of an addiction?
