Slots of fun: The inside track on behavioural addiction.

We typically think of addiction as involving drink or drugs, but what about the internet, video games, work, sex, or even exercise – can we be addicted to activities such as these? In this episode of the Research Reimagined podcast, we speak to distinguished NTU professor, Dr Mark Griffiths who is an expert in behavioural addiction. Mark gives the lowdown on how someone might become addicted to a feeling or behavior, as opposed to a substance, and what the common behavioural addictions are. He also answers the question as to whether we overuse the word ‘addiction’.
