I have been waiting on this day for a long time now. I used to take Vicodin and was really addicted to it.My last Dr appt I told him no more Vicodin put me on something weaker so I can get off the opiates. I was given Tylenol 3 with codeine. Yesterday,I decided it was time to jump off.I weaned myself to 2 pills a day and felt I was ready to make the jump. It's been roughly 30 hours without any T3's and I feel fine.W/D from codeine doesn't seem to be near as bad as it was with Vicodin or Oxy,both of which I have struggled with since 2006. I plan on trying to get out in the real world tomorrow and start living again opiate free.
My girlfriend hasn't been as supportive with this as I was hoping since I have struggled since last year with trying to quit.This is my 4th detox in 7 months but my first with codeine and I feel I will make it this time. I feel a bit weird and very tired and worn out but I have been able to keep fluids going down and have been eating like I normally do.
I really hope this is as bad as it gets and tomorrow and the days that follow I will be feeling better. I am not familiar with codeine w/ds and have read some websites on it and people ha a hard time with codeine and it kind of scared me but I am going to keep pushing to stay clean.
I do have pills sitting in a bottle in front of me and I have not had a craving for them at all. I'll post soon and update here the next few days as to how I am doing with the detox.
