Is there a such thing as a healthy addiction?
There are addictions out there that won't land you in jail or get someone killed. Is it healthy to be addicted to something that isn't neccessarily detrimental?
No, that it is harmful is part of the definition of addiction. At least per the DSM.
Being a slave to a habit that is good or bad, does not seem to be very healthy at all.
It's all about balance, I believe.
Some people are addicted to running, and that would be good, right? Over excessive running, or having running consume your life would not be healthy- I wouldn't think.
Everything in moderation is key. I should tell myself that, as I have some bad vices. I also have a problem with eating way to much nutritional yeast, and I'm sure that's not very healthy when consumed excessively.
So there is no possible way for an addiction to be positive? There is nothing you can be addicted to that others would be directly affected by in a good way? What about the people who must have a clean home who have children. As a result the children continue the habit and avoid sickness by default.
I feel that even if you were addicted to something good (Like your example above) if you really think about it, what will happen is it ends up not being so good. Over cleaning can create a sterile enviroment; children need their immune system built..
