All true, but I think we are arguing different points here. Again, it's NOT the same...no one is saying it is. But it is AN addiction and it can lead to some of the same life devastating events. That was my point. In addition, it's a much harder addiction to realize. For one, you may never have to realize it. Say for example, you're in the porn industry...then being addicted is no big deal. But if your a priest, different story. If your spouse is into porn also, again...no biggie, she likes porn too. But if you're a college kid looking up porn on a regular basis and an addiction arises, and then you find a partner who isn't into it and you say "ok, I'll stop"...think again, most can't...and an addiction is realized.
