Addiction and Abuse

Addiction is a neurological disorder primarily of the sensory section of the nervous system. In addiction the nervous system (the brain) largely replaces external interchanges and interactions with internal repetitions and replications. Addiction is essentially a defensive organizational abuse (reaction) in which the nervous system of the organism turns in case of hostile, abusive or traumatic external action. The abuse is the displacement of natural extrovert motor (behavioral) reaction with artificial introvert sensory action instead of the use of motor reaction in neurological interactions and reproductions.

Typical condition of addiction is the escape from external reality, by way of enclosure (exclusion) to the internal self and the development of artificial (sensory) reality and hype towards artificial (motor) potentiality (fantasy).

Interchange between introvert (metabolic interactions) and extrovert (replications and reproductions) is normal in mental states and functional in biological organisms, especially in the more interactive human beings. Addiction develops preferences and propensities which reduce the range of variation and distort the normal interchange between rational and emotional mental states.  

Abusive consumption of natural or chemical substances like food, alcohol, tobacco and drugs augment sensory activity by way of excessive stimulation of the central nervous system (the brain).

Beyond normal (regular) levels such consumption becomes toxic to the brain. Repetitive or recurring abuse of substances neutralizes mental conscience, develops dependencies and leads to toxic escalation and uncontrollable consumption. Abuse and dependency thus lead to disruptions of relational, organizational and conditional functions, like impairment of information processing and interaction management, dimensional spatial and temporal distortions (illusions) and derivative neurological disabilities and disorders (delusions).    

Abusive repetition of extrovert behavioral patterns like in gambling, internet, social media, video game, violence and sex can develop addictions and dependencies. In all cases the fixations denote temporal, dimensional and neurological departures (distances).

Abuse, addiction and dependency are primarily emotional (sensory and reflexive) reactions rather than rational (motor and reflective) reactions. They are medically unhealthy and legally delinquent reactions, harmful to the integrity, individuality and liberty of the person and dysfunctional to the social and the civil condition.

Accordingly, rational (behavioural) intent and implementation determine accountability and define culpability (responsibility and liability) in the criminology of violation, abuse and delinquency and in derivative legal and judicial practice.
