The Codeine Afterglow?

Describing a positive side effect I get from an unusual place

Illustration by me

Codeine does not have the best reputation. It is often viewed as a dangerous, albeit somewhat weak, pain-killer and a gateway drug to much stronger opiates such as oxycontin and even heroin. However, I’d like to describe a strangely positive effect I’ve received from it (that is not mere pain relief).
