One who requires the use of a pacifier (Binky, Nuk5, MAM,) every day of one's life and experiences severe withdrawals in situations where use is prohibited. Typically experienced in infant stage, this addiction is normally eliminated by gradual "weaning" or reduction of use, to the point of elimination. Older stages of human development, including adults, may also experience this addiction. Withdrawal symptoms can be managed by creative use in situations where use is restricted. "Self-weaning" is a matter of free-will and acceptance.
The pacifier-dependant Adult Baby Girl is helpless to remove her Nuk5 pacifier. She throws a tantrum when her Daddy removes it from her mouth. Lollipops and ring-pops are of no help.
