Just a quick question, if you have the Addiction quality, how does that change addiction tests? And if there's a difference at difference addiction levels, what are they? Thanks in advance

Each level of the Addiction quality determines how badly you are addicted.
  • Mild You need to make a Withdrawal test once a month if you have not "gotten a fix".
  • Moderate You need to make a Withdrawal test every two weeks.
  • Severe You need to make a Withdrawal test once a week.
  • Burnout You need to make a Withdrawal test daily.

The addiction rating and threshold depends on the addiction (SR5, p. 414), but a Withdrawal test is the same as an Addiction test, but, success means that you can get rid of the addiction. A normal Addiction Test is when you have gotten your fix and failure on this test means the Quality increases in severity without earning Karma from the quality. Hope this helps!

That makes sense, thanks for clearing that up!
