Addiction, addict and addicted... what are these words in Esperanto?
I found dependi and manio, but I believe those concepts are completely different. A baby can be dependent on its mother, and an old man on his medicine, but an addiction is a different thing. Mania immidiately makes me think of bipolar disease, but I know it is used in English also more generally, for an extreme or excessive enthusiasm. It carries a nuance of insanity.
When I looked through PIV there was no sign below either of the roots that they are used when talking about things like drugs, alcohol and gambling. The defintitions didn't change my former impression of which concepts they represent.
What do you say?
