reversion of the definition of addiction[edit]

The current definition in the box, with the addition of "or compulsive drug use" does not improve on the opening sentence of the article: "Addiction is a state defined by compulsive engagement in rewarding stimuli, despite adverse consequences."

And falls short of the dramatic change in a person's priorities (motivations) which are viewed by others as so socially dysfunctional to the person that it is described as a disease - "we know better, this is bad for you".

Not all compulsions are so viewed (eg tapping), and the degrees that these appear as choices to the person vary. I believe that addictive compulsions appear to be choices, albeit acknowledged as problematic. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MartinGugino (talkcontribs)

@MartinGugino: Addictions are compulsions. Compulsions are not necessarily addictions. The difference is that the latter includes negative reinforcement, so reward is not a necessary attribute of stimuli. Tapping is obviously not rewarding, so it's not addictive. Addictions are disease states associated with pathologically reinforced stimuli, which is indeed compulsion. The degree of "free will" or "choice" an addicted individual has at any given moment is variable over the short term. I don't really follow the rest of what you said.

The addition is sometimes thought of as a disease. Not human. Pretty extreme, and this attitude of judgemental rejection is not conveyed in the definition( Martin | talkcontribs 19:19, 9 December 2014 (UTC))

A minor comment[edit]

Adderall is already a GA so maybe you change your editing plan for Adderall to FA. Sorry to bother you. Clr324 23:09, 14 December 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Clr324 (talkcontribs)

It unfortunately takes a stupid amount of work to get an article from GA to FA; I probably would if that weren't the case. Seppi333 (Insert  | Maintained) 20:07, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
Oh okay, maybe remove Adderall from the list because it has reached its goal? I'm sorry your page... Clr324 22:57, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
