People can even be addicted to good things. My mom is addicted to neatness and cleaning,mot the point it comes before her health and family. Rather than pay attention to me as I was growing up, she had to clean. If I left a toy out - I'd be screamed at and terrorized for hours. At one point, a chronic disease she has came out of remission. She ended up in the hospital multiple times because she chose to clean all day rather than rest like she was supposed to. Even a good thing like keeping the house clean can become an obsession that ruins someone's life and family.
