Codeine Free Day 5

Looking for people in similar situations or have been in this situation in the past. I am on Day 5 of cold turkey and things are okay my body is starting to feel more normal, still a bit fidgety and uncomfortable but it’s manageable. The thing that’s annoying is the total lack of energy to do anything, especially around the house and with my kids I just can’t get myself off the settee and it’s driving me insane I’m usually a very active person. Can anyone say how long maybe before I get my motivation back or is there things people have done to energise themselves, thanks
