My boyfriend has been using codeine for almost two weeks and his coughing really stopped. That happened a week after he started the treatment, but he is still taking the drug, because he does not want coughing to get back. How safe is codeine? I don't know much about it, but I do know that it should not be taken more than necessary.

And you are absolutely right. There is a reason why codeine therapy lasts for only a short period of time, like 7 days. Its side effects could bee very severe (coughing is nothing compared to those). So, I would strongly advise you to make him stop with the therapy. Coughing is already gone and even if it returns in a month or two, it would be safe to take codeine again. Of course, if doctor allows it.
