    I had to take pain killers for 3 and 1/2 mnths after a severe motorcycle wreck. I wound up addicted to them but they were needed at the time.

    I don't question that some people do live with pain, I question the amount of people who say they are living with pain.

    Withdrawals can cause pain.

    People can and do get addicted, you're right, I agree.
    All those things make sense, I'm not sure that the amount of people who live with pain are actually in pain because of a chronic illness.

    The pain may come from withdrawals.

    I've experienced a person with "chronic pain" not having their meds, it was a near psychological breakdown.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I understand that, I think a lot of the time people say they continue to have pain because they are addicted.

    I believe it, I have an addictive personality, so in most situations I refuse to take pain medication. Unless we are talking about only Tylenol, aspirin etc.

    I quit drinking, drugs et all partially for my wife and partially because I knew I would get addicted quickly.
