    How does a person know if they are addicted to hydrocodone? I take 2 per day, am I considered an addict?

    I don't think addiction is defined by the number of tablets that you take per day. In my opinion and in other's that I've read, taking any opioid on a daily basis will most likely cause a person to become dependent on it in the physical sense. If you stopped taking it without tapering down you would probably have a physical withdrawal with symptoms such as stomach cramping, sweating, nausea, headache, body aches, fatigue and mental stress. Being an addict, in my opinion, has the physical dependence PLUS the emotional and mental craving for a drug of choice. It means putting the need for and the desire for your drug of choice ahead of all other things in your life such as family, jobs, finances, children, health, etc. I'm speaking from my own personal experience with addiction.
