Codeine Addicition Experience by

Hi , I had my last solpadeine last weekend, I had been taking tramadol, which is much higher dose than over the counter codeine products. I tapered over a few days. And so far so good, dodgy tummy and fell flu like at times, but my head is clear. They're so so addictive and the effects on the body are bad. Get help from GP or NA if you need it. You'll feel so much better if you have a plan to taper. I did cold turkey before and it was hell. Went back on it straight away. The taper was easier. Best of luck. If I can do it, anyone can.

Hi there, well done on accepting it's an issue, I am in AA for alcohol and cocaine addiction, and I'm now detoxing from codeine. I never realised that alcohol was my biggest problem, do you feel you have any issue with your drinking? Drink lowers the inhibitions and we do things we'd never dream Of whilst sober. It's a horrible place to be in, I too don't 'seem the type' to get into addiction, but here I am. It disregards social Class, education and gender. Go to a dr and get refered for addiction counselling maybe? Best of luck. Let us know how you get on.
