Should I tape or cold turkey?

I have been on oxycodone 10/325 since 2004. I was taking 1 1/2 a day. Sometimes more if I am going out or drinking at home. (I start AA on 1/1/13 and want to be clean too.) I have been in and out of AA. I have used the Thomas recipe 3 times in the past to get off the pills.

Today I am taking 1/4, 1/4, 1/2, 1/4
12/28 I am taking 1/4 1/8 1/4 1/8
12/29 I am taking 1/8 1/8 1/4 1/8
12/30 I am taking 1/8 1/8 1/4 1/8
12/30 I am taking 1/8 1/8 1/8 0
12/31 I am taking 1/8 0 1/8 0

I am miserable. I have these w/d symptoms: chills, body aches, yawning constantly, very runny nose, then I take a 1/4 and they go away for 2 hours or so. Am I easing my body into making it's own opiates? I take a little more before my husband comes home from work, so I can cook and tidy up. I am very depressed. I haven't bought the L-Tyrosene, but I have gotten off of percocet before and it helped immensely.

Should I forget all this and just go cold turkey? I feel like I'm just dragging out the inevitable, but it is easier. Thanks
