http://CodeineAddiction.info Codeine Addiction Help Centre – Please Read The Codeine Addiction Help Centre was established in 2003 and was the world’s first resource specifically for Codeine Addicts. Over the last 5 and a half years we have helped thousands of addicts in Australia and Internationally. The forum is here for people who are addicted or dependent on codeine and who want to get clean. We are not a resource for anyone who wishes to continue taking codeine and is looking to reduce harm from over-the-counter preparations that also contain Ibuprofen or Paracetamol/Acetaminophen. There are many internet resources for people wanting to use codeine on an ongoing basis (sometimes referred to as recreational users), but few for people wanting to get clean. Our experience over the last 5 years is that for codeine addicts, any method that produces pure codeine leads to an escalation of that person’s addiction. While this is not true in every case it is certainly our overwhelming experience. As well as the harm from the Ibuprofen and Paracetamol that has been widely discussed in the media, codeine itself causes a range of health problems including tolerance, depression or low mood, pain, headache, tooth decay, chronic constipation, feelings of low self-worth, fatigue, fluid retention, and trouble urinating, menstrual problems and of course can have significant social and family impacts. The surest way to avoid harm is to get clean, and we can help you do that. All addicts that detox from codeine are immediately eliminating the risks from consuming ibuprofen or paracetamol, so that is our focus. We have a number of members with more than 4 years free of codeine addiction and hundreds of others who have substantial time free from their addiction. If you would like help to break free then please join us. Contrary to recent media coverage, the operators of this forum do not support codeine products being made prescription only. Please Note: If you are looking to use codeine on an ongoing basis, we recommend you seek the support of internet resources specifically designed for that purpose, including the helpful people at Bluelight http://www.bluelight.ru/vb/forumdisplay.php?f=045 Disclaimer All information provided on this site is intended for information only and should not be regarded as medical or legal advice. Medicines are invaluable when used correctly and in accordance with the instructions. We encourage anyone suffering with a codeine dependence to seek help from their treating doctor and an addiction specialist.
