Hi Ronald !

Sorry for the late reply.

I believe addiction is the right term. Habit is a more generic word that
includes the good and the bad ones.

Addiction is a widely use medical term and there specialties that deal with
it, like Addiction Medicine [0]

However, and like many others, this term might not be appropiate in some
countries, so we can change it in the localization / translation for that
specific country.

Let me know your thoughts.

All the best,
