What is addiction, does it exist, and is it the same for everyone? Are some of us predisposed to overindulge, be it alcohol, drugs or food? And if there is a genetic explanation, does it mean the individual can evade responsibility? Is addiction a medical or a moral question? Mariella Frostrup asks whether we can control our impulses and how we might go about it.
