I don’t think I’m addicted to my prescription drugs, they are just a necessity. My life hasn’t changed in any way, what classifies addiction?

If you feel like a substance has more control over you than you have over it, then you’re addicted.

Feeling you need something, that it’s a necessity, sounds like addiction to me. It can happen with strong painkillers and many, many people are addicted to nicotine. If you feel about your drugs the way other people do about smoking, then you have an addiction to them.
