As per my initial readings about dopamine are concerned it is usually stated that (like here )

Dopamine is a hormone associated with happiness.

But today I have come across a video in which the narrator says that dopamine may not be associated with happiness but gives birth to desires, beacuse addicts tends to indulge in activities which no longer provide them any happiness and even then they cannot stop.

So, what role does dopamine plays in addiction? Does it provide happiness or make us to do the “slavery” ?
