    The WR dictionary gives the following definition of addiction: "the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma"

    I'm sure you can say that if you are using addiction in a figurative sense.
