I guess if you want to get technical, it could be a disease because it's an addiction. But anyone can pretty much be addicted to anything, so where does it end?

Next I will be told as an employer that if someone has a "gaming" addiction and cannot perform their duties, that this is a disability issue and I can't fire them.

The subject of 'addiction' as being an actual 'disease' is questionable.

Alcoholism is an addiction but is treated like cancer, they can't help it.  I never have understood that.

Because, according to progs, we are nothing but animals anyway.  We don't have "choices", just instinct. That is why one can be born gay. Can't help but allow our base urges to control our lives.
