I have slipped up a few times with my codeine addiction and today have been 3 weeks clean (again), seems like an endless circle. It doesn't take much to fall back into old habits. I have the damn back ache and restless legs again. I wish I would learn. I can not take these things ever.
I wouldn't suggest trying to give up smoking and codeine at the same time though.
Please let me know how you are getting on.
I only just saw your post tonight, but it has been a really rough couple of months for me so I haven't been on at all. I have no idea where you are in your fight to give up the codeine it would be nice to know.
Anyways, something else to consider, I too am a migraine sufferer but I noticed when I gave up the codeine my migraines eventually, not ceased but were not where near as frequent as they use to be but then I gave up smoking (486 days today) and I can not remember the last time I had a migraine. When I gave up the codeine I think I used my cigarettes as a crutch and started smoking way more then I should have. I have to admit, giving up smoking was a lot harder then giving up the codeine, the side effects were nowhere as bad though.
