Perhaps a better definition of addiction would be not wanting to stop but
wanting to want to stop.

And it's odd, politicians talk about the drug epidemic as if it's something
new but tobacco is very old and it kills far more people than every other
drug, legal and illegal, combined. And that remains true even if you
include the second most dangerous drug alcohol which for some strange
reason most parents don't even consider a drug.... "*thank goodness, little
Jimmy was't on drugs, he was just drunk*".
