off oxycodone 11 days, now dealing with alcoholism

Posted 10-12-2010 at 03:13 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

still with vivid nightmares. Yesterday was with runny nose and yawns, detox side effects after 10 days off the percocet.

I got drunk last night again: 2 beers and about 4 jack and 7's. I look forward to my husband coming home and we listen to rock and he plays his guitar and we talk about stuff--instead of just watching tv, which is what we do if we don't drink.

He said last night that he might quit. Now that the percs are gone, drinking isn't near the fun. No percs...

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

Posted 10-11-2010 at 04:29 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

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...

9 days clean percocet oxycodone, alcoholism

Posted 10-10-2010 at 04:03 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

The only detox symptom that I still have is vivid dreaming, and that is not every night. I don't know if my anxiety is related or not. I keep finding myself rushing around trying to do too much and then wanting to drink to calm me down.

Regarding the drinking, I drank last night and didn't even enjoy it. I am hungover again today. (4th day in a row) Life is just too damn short for this. I'm going to quit again today even though I have Jack Daniels whiskey in the house. I'll just...

clean and sober...or just oxy-clean?

Posted 10-06-2010 at 02:42 PM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

I feel like i need to get honest, most of all with me. I got drunk last night, and I really regret it. It was fun, yes. But not worth the consequences. I feel like poop today. Hungover. I keep eating and i had been doing so great on my diet. I have the evening alone, and I need to get my act together. Do I still want to drink? well, ya, I guess I do because i did it last night. I rushed through my day, kind of stressing out over little things, trying to run the show and make everything perfect....
