The definition of addiction (from the Columbia Encyclopedia) is:
"Addiction is more often now defined by the continuing, compulsive nature of the drug use despite physical and/or psychological harm to the user and society and includes both licit and illicit drugs, and the term “substance abuse” is now frequently used because of the broad
range of substances (including alcohol and inhalants) that can fit the addictive profile."
Please keep in mind that addiction and physical dependence are entirely two DIFFERENT things. In my opinion, you are fine.
