Cupcakes are the new cocaine?

I always enjoy Damian Thompson but his new book on addictions disquiets me. I am worried by the expanding idea of addiction - which is fairly recent, useful up to a point, but seems like a reason for us to feel powerless and for governments to regulate people's lives. He is right though that, as Eric Berne said, drugs are instead of people.
