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.
36 days off of oxycodone and 23 days sober
Kind of weird numbers in my title, but it's me and my blog, so whatever. I just felt like blogging since my husbando is going to be drinking all night and listening to loud rock and roll. I need to find something to do tonight. I went to oa (a subject for another blog entry) and aa yesterday and I don't feel like hittin' a meetin'. I was gone half the day Christmas shopping and I'm kind of pooped. I could go see a movie but just went last night plus it will be all couples on a Saturday night. So...I'm going to call my sponsor and check in and turn on the tv before he can get started on Itunes.
BTW it feels great to be clean and sober. I'm going to blog more later.
