    We are a culture of addiction. Addicted to television, the internet, shopping, the majority of addicts are not hooked on a drug. Maybe we are driven by our addictions like passions.

    Thank you for your comment. Your point is interesting and I would like to offer my reflection. As a culture, we appear to be more disconnected from one another relationally and look to other experiences, objects, or substances to help us to feel more comfortable in our own skin. While it is true that these are common elements present in addiction they are not diagnostically significant and therefore, I could not say with confidence that addiction is any more or less prevalent than in past generations. Perhaps though, (and this may have been the intent of your comment) it could be argued that the more we use behaviors like watching the television, viewing the internet, and shopping to cope with discomfort rather than looking to human connectedness to cope we are making ourselves more susceptible to addictive disorders.

    In reaction to your third sentence I would offer these brief comments. First, if I am truly passionate about something there will be an element of joy. If this passionate pursuit becomes a compulsion it greatly minimizes or extinguishes the joy that I might have originally derived from that pursuit. This occurs because we are engaging in the behavior not simply because we want to engage in the behavior but because we increasingly feel that we need to engage in the pursuit of our particular passion. Addiction and compulsion share an element in common, which is that they are both life diminishing. A healthy passionate pursuit of a loved one, career, or hobby by definition is life giving and/or satisfying. Therefore, I do not believe that it is possible to be driven by our addiction like we are by our passion. However, I would welcome further dialogue. Again thank you for the post.
