      Hi Ryan

      Sorry for the silence

      I was in the bath trying to get comfortable

      I am going to see the doc tomorrow to discuss my struggle

      He will want to put me back on codeine but it will just prolong the inevitable 

      It's ___

      I've never done h probably because I've never had it offered but I'm pretty sure I could have as I have had to beat coke and speed before which I used daily for about 4-5 years a piece.

      I quit those myself without help, that was tough, but opiates are are completely different thing and the torture your mind and body go through is enough to lead you to contemplate doing anything to take the pain away!

      Don't beat yourself up

      We all fall off

      Get back on and seek all the help available 

      I'm considering katrom

      Have you heard of it, tried it?

      Peace brother x

      Stay strong bro

      Don't go back there

      If you have any left get rid of it

      If you have contacts in your phone delete them

      People who sell or give you that ___ are not friends.

      I have had to cut people out of my life to avoid temptation in the past, it's hard,

      If you can't cut them out tell them under no circumstances no matter how much you beg to refuse you.

      Stay strong please

      I will too

    Why the hell do these moderations happen it's maddening when we are just trying to support each other!!!???

    In a nutshell Ryan

    Stay strong 

    Throw away anything you have that will tempt you

    Cut yourself off from people and places of temptation  and pester the doc to hell

    Stay strong

    Hi Ryan

    Did the doc get back to you?

    How are you?

    I got home after my walk

    Had to cook tea for my family as I'm the only one at home at the moment and it seems like the right thing to do to contribute at the moment.

    I was fighting back tears trying to motivate myself so I took a Valium to numb myself a bit, then I found 2 solpadeine max, 12.8mg of codeine in each tab, with 500mg paracetamol.

    I took them.

    They are the last I've got lying around, and it is only a small amount but I know I should have resisted, and thrown them away.

    I hope I don't regret it.

    I vow not to buy any more

    I have to develop more resolve!
