Nella lingua anglosassone vi è una differenza fra i due termini ADDICTION e DEPENDENCE. Quali sono le differenze significative?

    Addiction is a form of dependence, which is generally acquired, as a dependence to drugs or acohol. It is more of an obsession, or a physical dependence. When it comes to drugs and obsessive behaviour, addiction is used. I hope this helps.

    Well, Dependence in English is only physical dependence, but Addiction is also tolerance, craving, compulsion, sensation seeking...!
