Etymology( ریشه شناسی لغت):

A ‘hook’ is a curved(منحنی) piece of metal used to catch something, like a fish hook(قلاب ماهیگیری). If you are ‘hooked’ on something, it has caught you and won’t let go. This term was originally (در ابتدا) used by drug addicts (معتاد ها) to describe the feeling of needing drugs(تزریق مواد مخدر), and now it used to describe anything that is so good that you want it every day.
