Opioids don't take away pain. They take you away from the pain. That's how they work. Some people don't think of this as euphoria - a brightening/lift in mood - but the actual neuro-psychological effect is the same for everyone. It's just that, for some people, that mood lift is very notable and addicting. If you don't think opioids cause euphoria in everyone, just think about (if you've ever had surgery) how you feel after those early injections of morphine. To be sure, some people don't like the neuro-psychological feeling of opioids, just like some people find that the mood enhancement from a glass of wine makes them feel tired and spacey. But many people find that tired and spacey feeling very addictive.

I suspect that many people prone to addiction suffer from low mood and self-esteem, so that their brains react to the euphoria rather than the accompanying sleepiness. People who are generally happy, upbeat and tend toward high-mood, mostly remember the sleepiness.
