yes, in many ways its like an addiction except that you/one cannot live without food and so many now believe we should treat opiate addiction like a medical condition ie addiction it is, so why not the same with obesity (at least those with over-eating addiction)

No, it's not a disease, but some diseases may cause obesity.
