Aha. Good question. Now, it all depends on what side of the equation you're working. There are two main types of chemical dependence in the brain: Physical and Psychological. Physical dependence occurs when the body has become so accustomed to functioning in the presence of a certain chemical that, when removed, the body goes into a physical withdrawal as it attempts to regulate itself. In this time, the body goes through natural physical cravings - as it is easier than having to readjust itself. Common physically addicting agents: -Hydrocodone -Morphine -Heroin (diacetyl morphine) >Fatal withdrawals reported -Hydromorphone (synthetic morphine) -Oxymorphone -Oxycodone -Opium -Codeine (methylmorphine) -Dextroamphetamines -Levoamphetamines -Alcohol >Fatal withdrawals reported -Methyl-amphetamines >Esp. in HCl form (aka "Crystal meth") >Fatal withdrawals reported -Methaqualone (aka "Quaaludes") -Gamma-hydroxybutyrate (aka "GHB") >Fatal withdrawals reported -Cocaine >Esp. in rock form (aka "Crack") -Benzodiazepines: >Alprazolam (aka "Xanax") >Clonazepam (aka "Klonopin") >Diazepam (aka "Valium") >Lorazepam (aka "Ativan") +All BZOs have seismic withdrawals+ -Phencyclidine (aka "PCP") -Nicotine -Thebaine (natural opiate form) -Carisoprodol (aka "Soma") --etc.-- Now, if you want extra credit, you could list analogues of these substances. (This is the part in which I beat Andrea's copy-pasted answer...) Phencyclidine: -PCPy (Rolicyclidine) -PCE (Eticyclidine) -TCP (Tenocyclidine) -PHP (Phenylcyclohexylpyrrolidine) -PCPP (Phenylcyclopentylpiperidine) Morphine: -dihydromorphine -dihydrocodeine -propyl-dimethylmorphine -isobutyl-dimethylmorphine -allyl-dimethylmorphine -cyclopropylmethyl-morphine -etorphine (aka "Immobilon") -naloxone (aka "Narcan") -naltrexone (aka "Trexan") -levorphanol (aka "LevoDromeran") -levallorphan (aka "Lorfan") -cyclorphan -butorphanol (aka "Stadol") -benzomorphans -pentazocine (aka "Talwin") -cyclazocine -4-phenylpiperidine (aka "Demerol") -diphenoxylate (aka "Lomotil") -ketobemidone -anileridine -piminodine -fentanyl (aka "Sublimaze") -lofentanil -propoxyphene (aka "Darvocet") -6-methylene-dihydromorphine Okay, sorry - maybe don't use all of them. Morphine has hundreds of analogue derivative compounds. These are just a few from out of my med books. (Yes, I looked up several of them in my school work. No, I'm not being childish.) Lol.

There are many many additive drug opium, cocaine, nicotine, crystal meth are a few. Drugs can be addictive in two ways physically or mentally. If they are physically addictive like the ones above then they have physical withdrawal systems. Some drugs like pot are only mentally addictive as withdraw only leaves a mental want for the drug.

addiction is misunderstood. True addiction means that you get really sick and feel like you are 90 years old, have diarhea, running nose and eyes and sneezing when you stop your drug. If this doesnt happen you are not addicted, you are just missing feeling high and that makes you feel depressed and people think that is addiction. Believe me, there is only one type of true addiction and you get so sick that after enough days you cant take it any more and many people kill themsleves at this time. Opiates are the worst. Heroin, codein,morphene, vicodin, oxycontin are the drugs that will make you truly addicted. Many people think they are addicted because they miss their high when they dont have it, but they dont know sick and miserable until they have met he opiate family Answered by Cassi Geeslin 2 years ago.
