   Psychological and bodily dependence on a

    control

   An illness in which a person seeks and
    consumes a substance, such as alcohol, tobacco
    or a drug, despite the fact that it causes harm.
 A primary, chronic, neurobiologic disease, with
  genetic, psychosocial, and environmental factors
  influencing its development and manifestations.
 Uncontrollable craving, seeking, and use of a
  substance such as a drug or alcohol.
 Psychological and/or physiological reliance on a
  substance, typically characterized by cravings and
  compulsive use, neurochemical changes in the
  brain, and possibly withdrawal symptoms when the
  substance is stopped.
 Is characterized by the repeated use of a
 substance or behavior despite clear evidence of
 negative consequences resulting from the use
 of the substance or behavior. Addiction usually
 has two components – physical addiction and
 psychological addiction.
 A maladaptive pattern of substance use, leading
  to clinically significant impairment or distress, as
  manifested by three (or more) of the following,

                    Alcoholism
► New AMA definition, as published in The Journal of
 the American Medical Association, August 26,
 1992:
   Alcoholism is a primary, chronic disease with genetic,
    psychosocial, and environmental factors influencing its
    development and manifestations. The disease is often
    progressive and fatal. It is characterized by impaired
    control over drinking, preoccupation with the drug
    alcohol, use of alcohol despite adverse consequences,
    and distortions in thinking, most notably denial. Each of
    these symptoms may be continuous or periodic.

► Definitions   of Recovery on the Web:
   The act or process of regaining or repossession
    of something lost

   Acetylcholine - voluntary movement of the

    and movement of the viscera (via the
    parasympathetic pathways)
   Norepinephrine - wakefulness or arousal - via
    the sympathetic pathways
   Epinephrine - similar to nor-epinephrine. Large
    amounts of it are produced and are released by
    the adrenal glands. Also called adrenaline.
 Dopamine - voluntary movement and
  motivation, "wanting", pleasure, associated with
  addiction and love
 Serotonin - memory, emotion, wakefulness,
  sleep and temperature regulation
 GABA - inhibition of motor neurons

  especially pain
