In brief: Very common

Co-codamol (is a non-proprietary name used to denote a particular compound analgesic, a combination of Codeine phosphate and paracetamol (acetaminophen).
Co-codamol tablets are used for the relief of mild to moderate pain when paracetamol or nsaids such as ibuprofen, Aspirin or Naproxen alone do not sufficiently relieve a patient's symptoms.

In brief: Opioid Addiction

The Codeine metabolizes to morphine in your body to some extent.
Hence, the addiction is to opiates sometimes improperly termed narcotics, which is a more general term.
