I was using the top google definition of addiciton “An illness in which a person seeks and consumes a substance, such as alcohol, tobacco or a drug, despite the fact that it causes harm.”

Note a physical addiction (from certain types of drugs) where the body requires certain substances does not require an obsession which is a psychological problem. I would thus suggest that addiction triggers obsessive behaviour, but is not necessarily part of it.
