My mother gave me codeine as a child for pain relief, I am 43 now and have a addiction of 100 per day.
I go to AA and have been sober for 14 years, However codeine still eludes me.
I have tried so many things it's not funny, However i will admit i haven't given it my very best shot at times, mostly because i do not know how to live with out something.

Not only are you at risk of developing lung cancer from smoking, but you are also putting yourself at risk for developing oral cancer.

The fact of the matter is that tobacco products do put you at risk, and it is advised to avoid the use of these products.
