Jim Orford's approach to understanding addiction was first developed in 1985, with the publication of his ground-breaking book, Excessive Appetites: A Psychological View of Addictions. The central idea of the theory is that addictions are types of extreme appetites, rather than forms of dependency on drugs. The five core appetites he identified in the theory are drinking alcohol, gambling, drug taking, eating, and exercise.

A comprehensive monograph that examines a whole range of addictive behaviors and how they relate to the developmental process. Emphasizing social psychological processes, it also considers the role of biological factors in addiction. Covers drinking, drug-taking, eating, gambling and sexuality. Analyzes how such behaviours are taken up, how they become difficult and hard to control and, finally, the processes involved in change.

This is a detailed textbook with many references to many studies. It really isn't for the layperson and I found it difficult reading. However my lecturer highly recommended so I bought it. The lecturer was much more easy to understand.
