Addicted to co codomol by

Hi. I'm no good at giving advice of tapering because i always fail at it but you can do this. I'm on day 5 of going cold Turkey and I'm not going to lie, it's hard. Really hard. I am trying to keep myself as busy as possible. Having to push myself with every single thing i do but no one in my family is aware so i have to try carry on as normal as possible. Even though it is absolutely killing me inside. Just be kind to yourself. If it doesn't work the first, second, third time etc just keep trying. And remember you aren't alone. Even if u are just talking to people on here like i am. It's better than keeping it all to yourself.

My codeine addiction by

I was taking around a 100 a day. Don't know how I'm not dead sometimes. I was forever running out and forever feeling rubbish. It has been harder for me to get them now so that's 1 reason why I have stopped and also because I am so sick of it ruling my life. My poor kids are suffering because of how much I've been spending on it. They don't get many days out anymore. Either because there is not enough money or because I feel rubbish. I just feel it is never going to end. I have relapsed so many times. I wouldn't wish this on anyone. I just want to be happy. And I want my kids to have a happy mum ????
