Please explain? What is the difference between addiction and dependency? Thanks.

Ooops missed this part. When you have pain and take narcotics you do not become addicted. The narcotic goes to work on the pain receptors. It's only those who have no pain and take narcotics (for the buzz) who become addicted. Dependency is a different matter. I have come to grips with the fact that I will be dependent on pain killers for the rest of my life or until this illness goes into remission. Marla
