An excessive exposure to this kind of addictive stimuli, irrespective of the source of the addiction, could turn to destructive, rather that constructive, such as but not limited to; food craving, workaholism, intense sexual intercourse, gambling, smoking, alcoholism, drugs, cocaine, nicotine, etc. The term addiction is frequently misused to refer to other compulsive behaviors or disorders. Any form of toxic substance is destructive for it is associated with long-term complications. Conversely, some other forms of addiction could be constructive; such as high-thrill cultural, social or sport activities- engagement in welfare and social activities, workaholism, aerobic exercise, fishing, hiking, golfing, television watching, internet and social media activities, etc.; for, they are perceived as being essentially positive, desirable, and pleasurable.
