1 day only: The short half-life of Codeine in serum is only 2-4 hours. It takes approximately 6 half lives for a drug to be eliminated from your system. 4*6/24=1 days. The Codeine will stay in your system for about 1 days. Take this opportunity and stay clean.

Absolutely!: Codeine is a narcotic. Although weaker than many narcotics, it still has the same potential side effects from addiction to constipation, respiratory depression, and death. Only use according to prescription instructions and no more.
