In short I gave up using pain,killers recreationally a few months ago. I had built up a tolerance that was absolutely insane. Could literally neck 50+ pills every day. Codeine, DHC, morphine and tramadol all by the bucket load. Problem is that now when I have a genuine injury and take co-codamol or a few tramadol (2 or 3) they really don't do anything and I wondered how long if ever my tolerance will be normal, I'm sure there are a load of factors but if anyone has input that would be good. Glad to be off them but temptation is still there a bit. Drinking more booze to compensate but pretty sure thats less harmful than 50 pills a day, although I need to address it soon. Have gave up a lot of things, booze is the one I will find hardest to control.
