A habit tends to be repeated frequently and has become nearly automatic, has developed by repetition or exposure, usually through conscious choice. It results in long-term outcomes that are beneficial and positive to the self and/or others (they outweigh the negatives) and typically are in balance. An addiction is a behavior pattern that has developed through physiologic exposure to a substance or initiation to something that provides a reward plus incentives that may be in the form of stored conscious memories or cues that are reminders of that reward. It results in long-term outcomes that are negative to the self and/or others (they outweigh the positives) and typically are out of balance.
