Thanks; NemaChains....I see all kinds of people on here tapering off of codeine. Think; because AFOM would like to do a complete journal for herself; she has given me her notations and here they are; input by myself. I shall speak in the 1st person to make it easier and faster to get put down. Let's see I tried 3 times within the last month and a half and gave up the grease in the first two times. 3rd time will be the charm tho' and I must say that today was day 7 or 8 and I am feeling much better. Here is a rundown of her timing this month.
