    not sure this is a question that can get a full answer. addictions as in drug , booze, gambling are and can have negative outcomes. Take these away and you still have the mind of the addict . 12 step program is my life .changing my thinking and my actions is key. Destiny wrapped it up ( first the addict must ADMIT) many of us think of drugs and booze, but food, shopping, sex, stealing the list goes on and on. I look at addiction as the Thinking Disease .

    Well, addiction can be of anything but if you are asking about drug addiction than the percentage is very high. In United State, 20.4 million people are addicted of drug and Iran has the highest drug addiction in the world.
