Drawing on important insights from psychological and other noneconomic literature and combining these with economic insights, a careful explanation of why addictive behavior is not rational is provided and a socio-economic model is developed to explain addictive behavior. The model incorporates a much broader conception of human behavior than does mainstream economics, and a broader recognition of the variety of factors that influence human behavior. The model is consistent with intuitive wisdom and the wisdom of religious and spiritual traditions. There is much scope for further research.
