Turning to Codeine and Diazepam


I need some advice. I suffer from OCD and anxiety, sometimes it is pretty bad, I can spend hours doing rituals or seeking reassurance, I’m on Prozac but I’ve yet to see much help, I started 6 weeks ago.

The problem is, I’ve started to turn to drugs. I got a script for Diazepam which I’ve started to abuse and I’m already considering ways to buy illegally once it’s gone. I’ve also been taking Codeine phosphate, only 120MG a the moment. I’ve also started taking Marijuana almost everyday.

I’m worried because my current mindset is ‘I feel terrible, but it’s okay, I’ll take some tablets/weed later and I’ll be able to relax’.

Does anyone have any advice on how to stop this way of thinking? This hasn’t been going on for long, only a few weeks but I’m already starting to think I’m developing a problem.

It's a problem the fact you are asking for advice says you know that... I don't have an answer for you... Think we all would love to know the answer... I hate the way I am sometimes but no matter what I do I can't stop... Good luck on your journey it's a shit path in life... Find the route of the problem and go from there...
