Is there any grammar mistake in the sentence below?
''I am addicted to something illegal that I wish I could stop.''
The sentence is ambiguous. I assume you want to say you'd like to stop being addicted. Instead, the sentence implies that you would like to stop the thing that is illegal, or at least make it legal. To add clarity, move the modifying phrase closer to that part it modifies: I wish I could stop my addiction to something illegal. Another option is to make two sentences: I am addicted to something illegal. I wish I could stop.
