Thanks. I'm not exactly sure why he attends so often (he's not new at all), only that my friend is extremely annoyed with him neglecting his family. I guess I should strike this last example as I can't tell if it's a zealous purpose in life or a benign addiction.

Both are still really something else that stimulates the addict enough so they can leave their previous addictions behind. I don't think the addict can just "try harder" to succeed. They have to fill their needs in some other way.
