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 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!!!!"

    Just wanted to say how proud I am of you and your continuing work to stay clean. It takes a little longer to be sober in that the behavior and way(s) of thinking have to change also. searchin

    thanks for the advice. Yeah you're right. The pills haven't been a problem. But drinking has kicked my *** too many times to count. I'm kind of embarrassed to go to AA because I have been in and out so many times. I read the books atleast. At one time I had 3 1/2 years and then 10 years then just in and out for a total of about 20 years. The oldtimers remember me and I know it's just my pride. I need to go to meetings. My husband is still drinking although he's cut way back. There is alcohol in the house, and so far I haven't had the urge to drink any. But I need to beware. It's cunning, baffling and powerful for sure. Thanks again.
