Codeine a "cocaine-like" drug? Uh...where are you getting your information?

Codeine is a very mild opiate. Hydrocodone is a synthetic opiate and is a little stronger. They are not related to cocaine, which is a stimulant (also a local anaesthetic). Withdrawal from cocaine and other stimulants can cause severe depression. The classic, most-obvious sign of opiate withdrawal is vomiting. Generally the doses required (of opiates or stimulants) to produce euphoria are in excess of those used therapeutically, so if you use these drugs as directed you are not as likely to experience severe withdrawals.
