Just an account of a taper a relapse and then a cold turkey withdrawal. I have been on percocet 10/325 15 mg every 5 hours since 2004, plus got higher on them. I have tapered off once and cold turkey once. The percocet gave me so much energy, and a feeling of euphoria (I love that word)I needed it for pain a sometimes. The best word for detox is hell. The best word for 2 weeks after detox is melancholy (also a great word, just fits). And the best word for good clean abstinence is reality. If you are dealing with opiate addiction and want recovery, I hope that my blog will help you as much as it helps me.

day 13 percocet cold turkey withdrawal, alcoholism

Posted 01-30-2013 at 08:06 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

Depressed. Hungover. The two of us drank almost a whole bottle of stoley vodka last night, a tuesday. I am tired and a littlle hungover and I have 3 appointments today: the dentist, the optomatrist, and a mammogram. I only have a car 2 days a week, so getting drunk last night was pretty stupid. I was so thirsty and asked my husband to bring home some vodka. We had fun, I guess. But it is the same thing we do every time we drink. Listen to loud music and dance some. I cancelled the dental appointment...

day 12 percocet cold turkey withdrawal

Posted 01-29-2013 at 10:49 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

Feeling better today but with diarria from the L-tyrosene. So on imodium. Much more productive. Husband bought me 2 cinnamon rolls. I ate one. I want to get off sugar, but I'm going to give it a few days. I can only focus on one addiction at a time. said i wouldn't drink til fri. drank last night--vodka about 3 large drinks. Today we are out of vodka, so it should be easier not to drink. I am doing laundry, etc. Slow but steady. No w/d symptoms. Not depressed.

day 6 percocet withdrawal

Posted 01-23-2013 at 09:29 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

Still not sleeping well. Up at 1:30. diarrhia is better. I didn't take the imodium. I have energy from the L Tyrosene 2000 mg. I cleaned up the house, got cleaned up, and am getting ready to do the bills. I had to take a break because my buspar hit like a ton of bricks. Tapering off of that too because of acute chronic short-term memory loss. I feel like I have gotten over the worst part.

RE: drinking - drank 1/2 pint of vodka.

didn't go to any meetings.

Day 5 cold turkey percocet. Sobriety is next.

Posted 01-22-2013 at 07:35 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

W/D symptoms have eased. I just cannot sleep.

I drank last night and got pretty drunk on a pint of Jack with my husband who is also my best friend. I know in my heart that we aren't going to make it if we don't stop drinking together. That's a hard task to accomplish because we talk the other one into drinking plus it is hard for 2 people to hit bottom together. We are having money problems too, so we can't afford alcohol. Our livers are damaged no doubt because we drink every day,...

36 days off of oxycodone and 23 days sober

Posted 11-06-2010 at 03:58 PM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

Kind of weird numbers in my title, but it's me and my blog, so whatever. I just felt like blogging since my husbando is going to be drinking all night and listening to loud rock and roll. I need to find something to do tonight. I went to oa (a subject for another blog entry) and aa yesterday and I don't feel like hittin' a meetin'. I was gone half the day Christmas shopping and I'm kind of pooped. I could go see a movie but just went last night plus it will be all couples on a Saturday night. So...I'm...
