Wiki Version:
<p><strong>Current definition for behavioral addiction:</strong></p> <p>A repeated behavior leading to significant harm or distress. The behavior is not reduced by the person and persists over a significant period of time. The harm or distress is of a functionally impairing nature.</p> <p>A behavior should not be conceptualized as behavioral addiction if:</p> <p>1) The behavior is better explained by an underlying disorder (e.g., a depressive disorder or impulse-control disorder). 2) The functional impairment results from an activity that, although potentially harmful, is the consequence of a willful choice (e.g. high-level sports). 3) The behavior can be characterized as a period of prolonged intensive involvement that detracts time and focus from other aspects of life, but does not lead to significant functional impairment or distress for the individual. 4) The behaviour is the result of a temporary coping strategy as an expected response to common stressors or losses.</p>
