Consumption Addiction: Developing a Research Agenda to Understanding How Consumers Progress From Normal to Maladaptive Consumption and Addiction

The focus of this roundtable is to develop a research agenda that explicates the process of addiction, including behaviors not usually associated with addiction. We examine the progression from seemingly normal to maladaptive, addicted consumption. We will also discuss how marketing cues can move consumers towards and away from addiction.
