Hi Luis,

I agree with you, we can take care of it as part of localisation/translation.

Regards and thanks

Hi Ronald !

Sorry for the late reply.

I believe addiction is the right term. Habit is a more generic word that includes the good and the bad ones.

Addiction is a widely use medical term and there specialties that deal with it, like Addiction Medicine [0]

However, and like many others, this term might not be appropiate in some countries, so we can change it in the localization / translation for that specific country.

Let me know your thoughts.

All the best,

The word Addictions [0] in Patient main form, Lifestyle is potentially offensive, I recommend the use of Habits [1] instead
