Would you say that temptation and addiction in The Lord of the Rings is similar to drug addiction in the real world?

Asked by tirithalui (408points) August 31st, 2008

Me and a friends were talking about it and I think there are a lot of similarities but he thought i was reading too much into it. What do you guys think?
