There is a difference between drug addiction and drug dependanece, although they often go hand in hand. Drug addiction is a strong phsychological craving for a particular drug. Without it, the person is testy, irritable etc. Drug dependence is a physiological need for the drug, i.e. the person can get sick or even die from lack of the drug if there dependence is strong. For example, some alcoholics have astrong craving for a drink, but have not yet become physically dependent on alcohol. Others, however, are so dependent upon alacohol that they will experience tremors, seizures and possibly even death if they withdraw abrubtly.
