I mainly take 2 Co codamols and 2 nurofen plus once a day and at night after work. It helps with stress, and muscle tension. I originally took them for back pain but now, that's not the case. It's the calming effect. I am aware paracetamol is risky so I prefer nurofen. I never take more than 3 Co codamols at once or 4 a day. Its quite easily manageable as I don't like taking them through the day. Same for Nurofen. I haven't exceeded the daily dose of either so I'd like to think I'm not in to deep. Checked my organs via tests and all is OK. I cut down my drinking which was good, 3 or 4 days off per week now. Content with that. I am considering just stopping taking them completely and then occasionally using them but I don't know.
I went through a stage where I wasn't aware taking 4 at once was risky but I learned it was and stopped.
I take zolpidem to sleep but recently not all the time and thats been a lifetime thing due to severe sleep trauma.
I just feel like what's the point in this, I don't actually need them and would survive fine without them. Any advice without judgement please? I feel its routine that's the problem and not addiction. Like alcohol it was routine and I broke that routine now I feel OK.
I feel I'd worry less about my life if I just stopped taking them and realised I can enjoy a drink responsibly like my wife and take my prescriptions as required.
I feel right now this is something I need to stop. I mean on that dose I'm not even sure I'd have withdrawals. I've went days without and not had any issues.
I had a plan to just not take any 2 days of the week, in a row and then the other 5 days will fall Into place. I'm absolutely terrified of any street drugs and Ive never taken any. I have anxiety issues and it's this fine line of being stress free vs not taking anything like alcohol or my anxiety medication to unwind. I feel I'm constantly just trying to find a balance and I got into a routine. Never take them together alcohol, always have 4 hours between.
I sleep in two bursts of 4 hours or so. I think if I didn't and slept say just 7 hours then up I'd not take any at all. Think I probably need to do that again as that's maybe where the routine started. Either way I think I just want rid of them. Just don't know how to tackle it at all.
