    Hello and welcome. Thank you for reaching out. I don't think I'm the best one to give you advice on how to get off codeine. I'm sure it can vary depending on how much you're using and how often and how long you've been on it. Perhaps the safest bet is to consult with an addiction specialist or healthcare provider. But there are probably others that can give you better advice than me.

    I'm super glad you're here and hope to keep seeing you around. Would love to know a little bit more about you.

    Welcome to the forum, @Tania. I'm happy to hear that you want to stop using codeine. I think the best thing you could do is what @Dominica suggested: consult an addiction specialist or doctor. I did find the article below, though, which might help you understand your addiction better.
