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.

ughh feels like beginning of w/d from oxycodone

Yesterday, I had lots of energy, ran lots of errands and was busy all day. Today, it's like I'm in w/d again day 18 I think. Runny nose, yawning like crazy, vivid dreams, waking up in the middle of the night is usual, but last night it was brutal. I have so many things to do today, but I just feel blahh. I thought I was past this.

oxy clean and sober

Posted 10-27-2010 at 03:01 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

Went to my first AA meeting since relapsing. It kinda sucked getting honest and laying it all out there, but I did and now I don't have to keep talking about relapsing.
I have been staying close to God and my sponsor in AA and in another 12 step program. I haven't been to NA, and don't know if I will. I think AA will do it. A drug is a drug and most people in AA these days are addicts too.
There are peaks and valleys, but I try to stay out of negative thinking. I have been clean...

clean and sober...or just oxy-clean?

Posted 10-06-2010 at 02:42 PM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

I feel like i need to get honest, most of all with me. I got drunk last night, and I really regret it. It was fun, yes. But not worth the consequences. I feel like poop today. Hungover. I keep eating and i had been doing so great on my diet. I have the evening alone, and I need to get my act together. Do I still want to drink? well, ya, I guess I do because i did it last night. I rushed through my day, kind of stressing out over little things, trying to run the show and make everything perfect....
