    Prescription Pills, Opiates, Amphetamines. or something similar to those.

    I like most people, don't generally think of alcohol or marijuana users as "addicts" (even though they may actually be addicts)

    I used to think of "tweeker" or meth user when I thought of a drug addict. But times have changed and so have drugs...

    I think of Heroin.....I have lost friends, but most importantly, my daughter lost her father.  I was not with him, and have been happily married, but obviously still cared about him tremendously.

    heroin, cocaine, crack, meth and alcohol to name a few. There are just to many to list these days.

    Just in reading your question, cocaine popped into my mind.

    I don't know much about drugs and drug addicts so there may be newer drugs than cocaine but it's the first thing that came to mind.
