Codeine Addicition Experience by CodeinePhosphaddictAmelia, sweetheart. You seem to bear similarities to my issue in which I continuously crave the codeine. Not just in a physical sense whereby withdrawals will absolutely ravage my rectum, but also the mental sense in which I just enjoy being high. It’s a functional high, which doesn’t make it easier to not crave. Taking the Nurofen in the way you are isn’t good because the ibuprofen could potentially give you a stomach ulcer. I don’t want you to use ANYTHING, but think about switching to paracetamol instead because it’s easier. Just do not EVER go beyond 1000mg as it will ruin your liver. Trust me on that. You need to find something else to occupy your mind in regards to the time you would be spending high. I wouldn’t ever advise switching it for another hard drug though. Your love for your children will motivate you. It’s good that you have that. I hope that everything works out for you. Genuinely, not just in an ‘empty word’ sense.
