This question is for Eclipse Phase 1st Edition...
I am looking at the relationship between Mental Disorder (Addiction) (EP p. 211), and at the Negative Ego/Morph Trait Addiction (EP p. 148).
I know you can have an Ego/Morph Addiction, without a Mental Disorder (Addiction).
My question is, can you have a Mental Disorder (Addiction) without a corresponding Negative Ego/Morph Trait Addiction?
My guess is No. The Mental Disorder needs a target addiction, and if you are not addicted to anything, you cannot have an addiction-based Mental Disorder, whether you never had an ego or morph addiction, or had one but "cleaned up" and "kicked the habit" (EP p. 318).
