But there is a heck of a lot more to it than that.” Likewise, there is a lot more to this word that I had realised.

addict, v.

1. To deliver over formally by sentence of a judge (to anyone). Hence fig. to make over, give up, surrender. Obs. except as a techn. term in Rom. Law.

2. refl. To bind, attach, or devote oneself as a servant, disciple, or adherent (to any person or cause). Obs.

3. To attach (anyone) to a pursuit. Obs.

4. To devote, give up, or apply habitually to a practice. a. trans. with refl. meaning. (A person addicts his mind, etc., or his tastes addict him.)

b. refl. and pass. (A person addicts himself, or is ADDICTED.)

Hence addicting ppl. a. = ADDICTIVE a.
