Re: Joshua

Here is a confusing twist...I heard that the body also get addicted to the adrenaline and the endorphins that the body release. So is the body addicted to the game, or are they addicted to the hormones/chemicals?

Directly or not, it can still get hooked.

Re: Joshua

Perhaps the mind is addicted to the rush.

The mind will kill the body to get what it wants.

Re: Joshua

Those chemicals can also be released by other things such as working out or sex. It would be the same as those get addicted to extreme sports, work out excessively to the point its unhealthy or are clinical nymphos. I think getting a true addiction to this rush is fairly rare.
