No one knows for sure, but there are atypical versions of dopamine receptors in people with addictive personalities. Addicted to Dopamine?:  Addicted to Dopamine? Dopamine is also produced in anticipation of a reward - this is why gambling can be highly addictive If the reward is likely, but not guaranteed, the dopamine levels are higher Many people with addictions have abnormal dopamine receptors Hungry rats given food get a 50-100% rise in dopamine. Rats given cocaine have a 1,000% increase. Homework:  Homework Write a 2 page paper about a stress management technique.
