Well this is all dependent, unlike what the first person said some people actually get perscribed a normal dosage and dont abuse the drug at all yet develop a dependency. Like people with anxiety issues take .5 mg of xanax but after a while their body and brain tells them they need that or else they will have a panic attack. So their body thinks it needs the medication to survive so it makes you dependent on it
I myself have once been addicted to drugs for recreational use. XTC for example was my main one. It didnt have anything to do with not wanting to deal with my life or having pain that otherwise cant be fixed, thats actually a very small percentage of why ppl use them recreationally. The other 2 answers are ignorant theyve probably never done drugs.... anyways, i did it because it felt good, made music better, i bonded really well with friends, life was exciting and who would want to pass that up? eventually though my body got way too used to having the chemical and it felt like i had to pop 8 tabs a night just to feel anything and i wanted that feeling i had when i first took XTC to come back (it never will ever come back and hit like it does your first experiences). I eventually ODed on over 24 tabs in one night and considering lethal limit is 8 im pretty lucky
OTC drugs such as tylenol is taken daily by millions of people to relieve headache symptoms and after a while a dependency will develop to the point you will have headaches unless you take tylenol. So peoples bodies crave it to fix the head issue.
Everyone has a dependency on something and its not hard to get it. Some are way more addictive than others, like recreational drugs, so thats the crap you hear about, no ones going to talk about a tylenol addict living on their street, but a coke addict? yea the whole world will talk about them because its taboo.
If medical marijuana took away all pain and stress of cancer and kept you alive years and years past when you were supposed to die would you not want a dependency on that? Who knows what would happen if they quit? They feel the pain and stress everything is causing from the cancer, and are you going to get on to cancer patients about just "trying to escape the pain" or as an easy way out? hell no, theyre dying, the drug helps, they develop a dependency. Once again this shows you the ignorance of people who dont do research and just post "drugs are bad and everyone who does them is bad" crap because thats what they grew up into
rkbtoo: i guess people with cancer, post tramatic stress disorder, bi polar disorder, heart disease and millions of other cases are just losers who cant handle their own lives huh? OH WAIT! i forgot, if they dont get help then they die or go crazy! well crap nevermind then you were wrong

The independent variable is the materials used in the paper airplane. The dependent variable is how far it flies. The reason the material is the independent variable is because that is the variable you change in the experiment and what affects how far it flies. The type of material does not depend on how far it flies. So to sum it up in a less-jumbled statement, because the the materials used does not depend on how far it flies, the material used is the independent variable.
Chemical dependence may be physical or mental --- or both
It is difficult, at times, to determine, even with testing.
Many suffering from PTSD or depression are even more
susceptible than others to certain medications---
and the those with physical pain may also be.
It is fortunate that today there are clinics to assist in management of pain
and monitoring medications.
Withdrawal can be extremely difficult for mental or physical dependency.
