In the dose that you are taking, in my opinion, you shouldnt be too worried about codeine addiction. However, taking these tabs for that long is not ideal, and I'd suggest seeing a physio to help getting the shoulder back to normal.
Transact Patches is something you can also consider to alternate with the nurofen - slap one patch on the affected area, and leave it there to do its job for 12 hours. These ara available from most pharmacies and does not require a presciption.
All the best.
