"You people look so funy, act so friendly, but you get hooked on that energy stuff so easy, it's scary"
Does it mean that they become dependant on a chemical substance? Can we get hooked on a specific food? Can I say "get hooke on someone" because of being attracted to a person?
I think 'hooked on' started life as relating to hallucinogenic drugs; it was about a physical dependency. But now the phrase is commonly used about any extreme taste change or behaviour change, with no actual dependency being involved.
An anti-smoking advert recently in the UK played on this meaning change; it showed a person who needed a cigarette actually having a fish hook stuck in his mouth, and the line pulled him towards a cigarette. It made you think 'Oh yes, so that's why they say "hooked on"!'
