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.

1/18/13 woohaa! 30 days. I feel great most of the time. Sometimes, I even have the energy that the percocet gave me, but it's natural. I feel free! If you are struggling with addiction, taper off or go cold turkey. If I can do this anyone can.

3 weeks clean 2 8 13 oxycodone

Posted 02-07-2013 at 11:39 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

I can't sleep throughout the night, and I have very strange dreams. In one, I was walking a black pig in a big city.

No other w/d symptoms. I feel good except for the lack of sleep. Hopefully this will pass.

Went to the dentist yesterday for a filling, and didn't even think of asking for something for pain. My tooth hurt later, but not bad.

I have terrible headaches, but I think that's because the air is so dry.

If you are tapering off,...

Day 5 cold turkey percocet. Sobriety is next.

Posted 01-22-2013 at 06:35 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,...

oxycodone clean day 6 and sober

Posted 10-07-2010 at 04:33 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

I didn't drink last night so Oct 6, 10 is my new sobriety date. I went to the library last night and got a bunch of books--mostly novels. I am so tired of watching tv every single evening. I took the boys to the park. And I pigged out on pizza, at least it was paper-thin crust and veggie. Last night I dreamt a lot. The last dream i had was a guy who was on my case for not using union painters. I have no idea where that dream came from. But ok, if I ever need a painter, I will use a union painter....

found some oxycodone but didn't take it! YAY!!

Posted 10-04-2010 at 01:14 PM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

I was cleaning out my purse and found 3 or 4 percs in a bottle. I didn't take any. Yay!!!
I just got home from running errands and taking the dogs to the park. I'm tired but in a good way. It is a beautiful fall day---a great day to be clean and sober. It's time to rest. I didn't call my doc for the liver test but plan to tomorrow.
