    Hi Everyone, I am based in the UK. I have been addicted to a cough medication called Terpin & Codeine Linctus for over 6 years. I managed to give it up for 6 months 2 years ago, but got a cough and hey thought I was strong, and started taking the linctus again (I thought I could just give it up again). This is my 10th attempt since that time, and I have managed to go 10days now, using the Thomas Recipe without taking any codeine, but I am absolutely exhausted because I have restless legs every night - how long before this symptom goes away - I am not getting any sleep at night.
    The other thing that nobody mentions is the sneezing, I feel like I have hay fever. Apart from that I feel so determined not to take anymore codeine, I even went for couple of sessions of hypnosis, which was a total waste of money. The only way forward I think is to get yourself in the right frame of mind to give this evil thing up. Good luck to everyone with trying to get off opiates.

    Winifred I so understand where you are coming from. I will keep the hypnosis in mind and pass on trying that. I don't know why the sneezing but it is totally normal. It did get less but really I sneezed for 45 days or so. Not allot maybe like 2 or 3 times a day in the the last month.

    Congratulations on your 10 days!!!
