What are the differences between narcotics and addictive?

Narcotics are a class of drugs (opioid painkillers), while addiction refers to getting hooked on something where you must have it. Addiction can be either a psychological or physical dependence on a substance. Narcotics are addictive, though not everything that is addictive is a narcotic. For instance, marijuana is mostly just psychologically addictive, but it is not a narcotic. Cocaine is addictive in both ways, but it is a stimulant, not a narcotic.It all depends on the way the certain molecules bind with receptors in the brain. The better the binding, the shorter lasting and easier the addiction. The lower levels of binding last longer and are slightly less addictive.Perhaps you mean the difference between dependency and addiction. There is a fine line. Addictive behavior is different and very destructive. Dependency can result from long term use of prescribed drugs by a doctor. We call long term pain sufferers dependent, not addicted. Though, they ARE addicted, the benefits of the drug may outweigh the side effects.
