Hey I just came across this site and wanted to let people know that you can succeed in becoming drug free! I was addicted to dhc & codeine for 12 years after having a hysterectomy and being prescribes dhc's. I used to get slow realise dhc's 120mgs I would take a weeks supply in a day by crushing them, when I had used them I would buy codeine from pharmacy to the point I had to travel because local pharmacies wouldn't serve me!! If I was taking tablets that I bought I used to take 16 every two hours from 2.30 onwards and speak to my friends on the phone, I stopped phoning but explained to her why I wouldn't be able to phone her. Good luck everyone
