What makes people addicted to prescription drugs?

I don't understand. Why do people get addicted to prescription drugs? I know people get addicted to street drugs like cocaine, heroine, etc., but why prescription drugs? I could never imagine myself getting addicted to prescription drugs. I thought people would look more forward to getting off prescription drugs rather than getting hooked on it.

    Prescription drugs can still get you high, just like street drugs, and are just as addictive. And of course, no one chooses to become addicted to a drug. Prescription drugs is a very wide category though, and can include anything from anxiety medications to muscle relaxants and painkillers.

    Some people might abuse prescription drugs also because they are more readily accessible than street drugs. It is unfortunately very easy to "doctor shop" and get all of the pills you want.

    My answer to this is difficult, but it's a simple concept.

    ANY drug, be it one you cook up, burn, inhale, ingest, prescribed or picked out of the ground, will have an effect on your mind.

    You have absolutely nothing in this world if you do not have full control of your mental capacity.

    These people become addicted because they lose full control. that's all. Same thing happens to people who smoke crack, or meth, or so be it. They have little or no control over their mental capacity, they lose their battle and submit to their newly developed habits.

    Mind over matter, because you have nothing else without it.

    "I thought people would look more forward to getting off prescription drugs rather than getting hooked on it." <---(You haven't ever taken a prescription medication that has messed you up? Maybe thats why this is confusing.)

    Addiction to prescription drugs comes in the same form as addiction to illegal drugs. Some drugs, if taken too often cause your body to become dependent on them. You're body thinks that it NEEDS this stuff to survive, and will start having withdrawal symptoms without it. Convulsing, seizures, moodswings, it really messes with the chemicals in your body.

    It's one of the reasons prescriptions have to come from doctors, they limit the amount you get and take in order to help prevent your body from becoming dependent on them. It is an actual physical reaction that happens, and it's very hard to beat.
