I believe that one person can get addicted to any one thing. Whether that one thing is an action or an object, any one is subject to developing an addiction. According to someone in my family, I had an addiction to videogames. I didn’t believe him/her and neither did my friends, but when I was faced with the challenge of stopping, I relized that I had a slight addiction. Now I understand that even though one might not think he/she is addicted to something, that person will never know unless someone shows them.
