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 14!! clean. Day 2 sober

I feel a lot better today. I have been cleaning house, and I have a lot of energy.

I didn't drink last night! My sponsor came over and we talked for a long time. She is a wonderful person and my best friend. I am going to a meeting tomorrow.

It feels so great to feel good to not be hungover or speeding on percs. I'm me. What a concept.

L Tyrosene 1000 mg yesterday and today.

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 11 percocet cold turkey

very bored, down, depressed. L tyrosene as suggested in the Thomas recipe didn't help. Craving sweets badly. Binge eating trying to get a sugar fix. Yucky day. Non productive. negative.

day 9 percocet oxycodone cold turkey withdrawal

I have a terrible headache x 4 days now, but realized it is from the air being so dry; nose drops help immensely.

I feel good today except for that. No w/d symptoms. Slept all night, although I woke up with the most painful leg cramp. I take vitamins including extra biotin and b12, magnesium and eat bananas.

I took the L-tyrosene and it is wearing off already. But the house is cleaned up and now I can relax.

Well, I guess that's about...

day 8 percocet oxycodone cold turkey

Posted 01-25-2013 at 09:09 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

Had dreams so I know I am finally getting REM sleep. This morning I took my L Tyrosene 3000 mg. and I had a lot of energy. It's 10 a.m. now and it's already wearing off. I just don't feel like doing anything. My fibromyagia is flaring.

I have to admit, I miss the energy that the percs gave me. But I'm not craving them. I know this will last about 2 to 3 weeks and then I will be back to normal. It would be better if i could get out of the house, but i don't have access to a car. ...
