People get addicted. Rinse. Repeat.Both true, but not because of a particular dug or distraction- addiction is a symptom of another underlying issue, either physical or psychological. If this drug works the way they want it to work, all it would do would be block your brain's ability to receive pain signals- thereby making it a painkiller you couldn't get high on. Lidocaine abuse isn't really a thing, since all it does is make you numb- but I'm sure that someone, somewhere is "addicted to it" and the same thing could happen with this.
