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.
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.
