A Talmudic concern for addiction:

"Rav said to his son Chiyya: Do not take potions."
(Talmud, Pesachim 113a)
Rashi (11th century commentator) explained: Do not make it your practice to drink potions, because they (the potions themselves) will establish a fixed time for their consumption, and your heart will request them, and you will squander your money on them.

Have a great day,
