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.
Now that I'm off the oxycodone, drinking is a problem

I have stayed off the oxycodone since 9/30/10 with my only side effect being nightmares and vivid dreams and not being able to handle my liquor. I have been drinking and waking up hungover everyday for atleast 5 days--and I drink 2 beers and 2 or 3 mixed drinks. I know in previous posts, I said I was going to quit, I can't. The obsession and compulsion that went away while I was on the percs for 7 years is back. (I've been in and out of AA 3 times for 7 years, before the percs I had 3 1/2 and then 10 years sober.) Right now I want to quit, but when evening comes, I forget all of this and drink again. I hate it but I'm going to have to go back to AA. ugh. And i'm so fat. The people there are used to seeing me thin. I'm going to have to swallow my pride, and just do it.
