Addiction is a state of mind that induces the individual to get obsessed with a particular task, thing, or substance such as drugs, alcohol, tobacco etc, which may turn harmful if the activity persists beyond limits. Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
