I am a 30 year old female with a good job in I.T, a beautiful home and the world at my feet YET I have struggled with codeine addiction for the last 7 years. I got off the tablets previously then relapsed a year ago. I do not like the person I have become (moody, tearful, angry, lethargic) and after reaching out to my fiancè and mum tomorrow I am going to the GP to work out a way to get me off the damn stuff! Tapering/reduction doesn't work for me so I am thinking the Dr may suggest methadone or even perhaps cold turkey (again)! This scares the living bejesus out of me but I get married in 4 months and I want more than anything to be 'clean' when I walk down the aisle. Any tips on either the methadone or cold turkey would be appreciated as I am unsure what to expect with methadone but fearful of going through cold turkey again.
Will update after appointment tomorrow.
