'drug' effects from food

If I understood correctly: opiates are good in the sense, they reduce pain. Now, our body produces opiates if we exercise? So by healthy activity like running / walking, we will naturally produce this?
Why then, is it not recommended to get these same opiates from foods like this wiki article says ( wheat, gluten, cheese? ) Is the addiction tendency stronger, and truly similar to that of the 'dangerous' opioids, like heroin / morphine?
Is cheese different from other dairy because it actually does have MORE opiates or it contains more of the casein protein?
I shared with LaniMuelRath on here, I was so surprised the 'craving' could be strong after so many months cheese-free. Just feeling down on myself for slips but again I don't want that to make me give up on this amazing vegan lifestyle!
