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.
clean since 9/30, sober since 10/14
Now i have clean and sober date of 10/14 (but i haven't used for 19 days!) Still with nightmares and night terrors. Went through a flare but am better now. Going to AA tonight with my sponsor--I'm 5 days sober...who wudda thunk it? If i can do it so can you. I feel like screaming from the roof tops, "I'm clean and sober!!!! and it's wonderful!!!!"
