Addictive chemicals are substances that you can ingest, inject, inhale, that are not beneficial to the maintenance/feeding of the human organism, but make the human organism want more!!!!
Such substances are, among others, Nicotine(tobacco), Cocaine(Coca leaves), Opium, etc.,
These substances in a chemically altered form can used as pain-killers.
Cocaine, becomes lignocaine for dental injections; opium becomes morphine a general pain-killer for surgical operations.
Alcohol (ethyl alcohol/ethanol) in drinks, beers, wines and spirits can become addictive if over used (Alcoholism).

There is nothing truly addictive that is not a chemical.
Everything you can touch, including gases like air, is made of chemicals.

There are a lot of chemicals that cause your body to be addicted. When you stop taking the chemicals you suffer pretty dramatically. The strongest addiction is the addiction to air.
