- What do you think of addiction in general, not the object/subject people are addicted too, but the addiction it self.

The term to me has negative connotations unless used in a joking kind of way. I see addictions as something you find hard to stop, if you try that is. Therefore if you enjoy something and do it a lot, it doesn't really count as an addiction. On the whole I think all addiction is bad, as too much of anything is bad for you.

- How do you think of a person that is addicted to a drug and/or addicted to a certain activity.

As I see addiction as negative, I tend to feel sorry for them. Either because they don't realise it, or because they do but struggle with it. I feel worse for the latter, as they aren't blissfully ignorant.

- Do you think there can be an addiction for being too lazy or too active?

I agree GayAsianBoy that these are more personality traits and/or medical conditions. I've been through phases where I guess you would call it 'laziness addiction', but it was more depression. Well and a lying in bed and anime addiction.

- Difference between Habit and addiction.

A habit is at worse relatively harmless and is usually some small action. An addiction is a wide ranging and often encompassing set of actions that have a considerable affect on daily life.

- Difference between obsession and addiction.

Obsessions are more focused.

- Have you ever had/have an addiction which you got rid of or are planning on getting rid of
- - Was it tough getting rid of it? / Is it hard trying to get rid of it?

An addiction to anime, but I can control it when I need to. I used to be addicted to RuneScape and that was serious, as in friendship ruining and 16 hour days serious. I was at that stage for a good two years. I suddenly got bored though and that was it (well the makers of the game did ruin it, so that helped).
