Ok so ive been posting on here for a while now about my addiction to Codeine and the withdrawals I was going through.
Its now 8 weeks since I last took any Codeine! I did this with no help from my GP (washed their hands with me) and also I was referred to New Directions who by the time they contacted me and said they wanted to see me I had already been through 4 weeks of WD's. The first 4 weeks were hell on earth. Insomnia, RLSs, Dhiarrea, Delirium, Body aches, Nausea, suicidal thoughts. In the first 3 weeks I didnt sleep for about 10 days straight. (yes thats true),
I am a bit angered that no-one wanted to help me but thats in the past now and all New Directions would have done is put me on Subutex (Buprenorphine). So in a way I am glad I did not see their Doctor.
I am starting to sleep again and my cravings have more or less gone.
My wife went to the docs with me the other day and they tried to put me on Zoloft (AD) But I dont want to get dependant on any other substance so I turned it down, lets just wait and see.
So after years of being addicted and also several attempts of WD'ing I feel I have finally turned a corner in my life.
I just get bored very easy now and have a dull ache which I cant explain.
