Doctor warns of danger of becoming addicted to anything

A professor of gambling studies has told Radio 5 live that people can be addicted to more than drugs, alcohol and gambling.

Dr Mark Griffiths from Nottingham Trent University has found that we can become addicted to being grumpy, skipping work and even bankruptcy.

Your Call's Nicky Campbell asked him if these could be physical addictions or just a lack of self-control.
