"Right or wrong" is a question of morals and ethics. But it is unadvisable. There's no form of addiction necessary ; when we are hurting from the loss of a relationship, its understandable that we would be very tempted to rush into another relationship, even if it's far from perfect, because it may feel better than being alone. But such relationships, just because they are usually entered into without due caution, often end miserably, too. It is generally better to wait a while --- to have friends, and socialize, but not to try to leap into a close emotional relationship until one has entirely healed emotionally. Think of it like a cricheting injury --- you may be keen to rejoin the side and play in the next test, but if you're not really fit yet, you won't actually be doing anyone a favour.
