Codeine is available over the counter here in chemists (drug stores) - usually 5-10mg only. It's also a component of a common over the counter cold
and flu medication here which has about 9mg codeine. Anything with a higher content is prescription only.
Codeine can be cooked into morphine and thence into heroin, so it's pretty tightly controlled in many countries, particularly the US. I personally
have a tray of prescription codeine/paracetemol painkillers in my first aid kit for bushwalking and hiking, so my badassery knows no bounds. I had a
wisdom tooth removed a few months ago and was prescribed the painkillers, but didn't take 'em. See? What a badass
Well done on the multiple vice-kicking there Ex-Cdo. I gave up smoking at the beginning of the year so I know it's not an easy thing to do. I tried to
get into shape and lose some post-divorce weight gain at the same time as quitting the smokes and found I could only handle one or the other.
Even attempting to kick the meds, the smokes, the booze and the junk food in one hit is a massive effort.
