> The way I see it is that dependence and addiction need to be seperated. For example I am dependent on Neuroleptics, without them I cannot function at all. However I don't feel the urge to take more and the effect is stable. In that way there is no tolerance buildup. Now addiction is a whole different thing. There is the urge to take more and there is tolerance, so you need more for the same effect which you crave.

Tolerance is a separate, independent matter, which can feature in dependence too. I think the essential point in addiction is to take the drug compulsively in spite of adverse consequences (eg. for body or economy) and/or despite a lack of reward.
