English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. addicted

    One is addicted to that which he has allowed to gain a strong, habitual, and enduring hold upon action, inclination, or involuntary tendency, as to a habit or indulgence. A man may be accustomed to labor, attached to his profession, devoted to his religion, given to study or to gluttony (in the bad sense, given over, or given up, is a stronger and more hopeless expression, as is abandoned). One inclined to luxury may become habituated to poverty. One is wedded to that which has become a second nature; as, one is wedded to science or to art. Prone is used only in a bad sense, and generally of natural tendencies; as, our hearts are prone to evil. Abandoned tells of the acquired viciousness of one who has given himself up to wickedness. Addicted may be used in a good, but more frequently a bad sense; as, addicted to study; addicted to drink. Devoted is used chiefly in the good sense; as, a mother's devoted affection.

  3. k.p.:

    Loneliness is like alcohol. at first it gives a slight buzz but nothing more. As time progresses and more is consumed, it slowly becomes more and more intoxicating. Then before you even know it, you become addicted. You grow to need the feeling it gives you, knowing that its slowly killing you but unable to detach. Unwilling to try, you slowly succumb to the darkness until, finally, it owns you. Only then do you realize you've slowly become a slave to the relentless darkness that consumes the rest of the population.Loneliness is like alcohol. at first it gives a slight buzz but nothing more.

  5. Edward Machtinger:

    Complex trauma is what led many of my patients to get HIV in first place and gets them to remain depressed, stay addicted and have trouble adhering to their meds, medicine and HIV primary care has not considered these health issues to be in their domain and their responsibility. I've heard many clinicians brag about having patients on crack be undetectable in their viral load, as if HIV was going to kill them in the first place. It's not. Crack is going to kill them.
