I hadn’t really considered that juicerexia was a thing (an addiction to juicing), but apparently it is according to Dr. Oz. But since I am pretty comfortable with the general concept of process addictions, I guess juicing can be a problem just like others.
But what I really did like was what psychologist Brenda Wade had to say about addiction on the Oz show (emphasis mine):
An addiction is something that stops your life. It stops your life because you focus all of your time and your energy and your attention on [it].
Unlike some folks who think addiction is being unable to walk through the airport without buying a Cinnabon, I think the concept that addiction is something that really interferes with your life is pretty important.
For me, “something that stops your life” is a pretty good way of saying that.
