[en] Self regulation has traditionally been a central concept in many theoretical models of addictive behaviors, whether related to substance use or not. Although numerous studies have established a clear relationship between low self-regulation (lack of impulse control) and addictive behaviours, few have been based on a specific theoretical rational which considers the multifaceted nature of selfregulation and its related psychological mechanisms. The present article emphasizes the necessity to propose an integrative approach taking into account the specific contribution of the various facets of impulsivity in addictive behaviours. We also discuss the limitations of conceptualizing addictive behaviours by focusing solely on individual differences in self-regulation abilities.
