quoth the wiki:
codeine is generally not used in single doses of greater than 60 mg (and no more than 240 mg in 24 hours)my sorry ass it isn't. one boxacodeine = 32 tabs * 8mg (yeah, measly freakin' eight) = 256mg C18H21NO3, plus a liver-smashing 16g paracetamol. believe me, if you're hurting or dependent enough (or both) you can chug all that and a bag of chips in one go, never mind the rest of the day. you'll be sick as a dog, but you probably won't care.
in other news, i find that i've used up my supply of drurgs, having actually forgotten that they third'ed my dose the last time i saw anyone. i got a snippy little letter from the NHS to tell me i could fuck off and i wasn't getting any more repeat scrips until a month's time. it will, of course, be completely pointless trying to explain to NHS staff that i am in fact retarded rather than deceptive, and that this is not like that guy who yoinks your whole supply of Percocet that you left out on the side at a party.
therefore you may now address me as Lepht, King of Withdrawal. long live the fuckin' king.
