A heroin addict about $26,000 and a Cocaine addict (Snow, not Crack) as little as $50,000. These figures based on people I have known. I...

Fun can be mood-altering, but much depends on how one defines addiction. The most accepted definitions involve engaging in activities that cause trouble in daily life, but continuing to do them despite the consequences. There are also the issues of compulsion and withdrawal. However, one must also...

There are no hard statistics on narcissism because they often go undiagnosed. A true narcissist is less likely to become an addict because of the way that they view themselves in relation to the rest of the world.
