Day 5 cold turkey percocet. Sobriety is next.

Posted 01-22-2013 at 06:35 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

W/D symptoms have eased. I just cannot sleep.

I drank last night and got pretty drunk on a pint of Jack with my husband who is also my best friend. I know in my heart that we aren't going to make it if we don't stop drinking together. That's a hard task to accomplish because we talk the other one into drinking plus it is hard for 2 people to hit bottom together. We are having money problems too, so we can't afford alcohol. Our livers are damaged no doubt because we drink every day,...

Percocet withdrawal hell day 4 begins in 6 hours

Posted 01-20-2013 at 11:40 PM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

God I pray that I have gone through the hardest part of this cold turkey. I didn't have time to taper, and honestly, I was tired of the addiction. I took 15 mg every 5 hours, plus what I would get high on, which was getting more and more often and then I would have to taper way down and feel crummy until my next refill of 180 a month that I would share with my husband. We drink every day plus the tylenol in the percs has to be damaging our livers.

I hope my doctor will continue to...

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...

found some oxycodone but didn't take it! YAY!!

Posted 10-04-2010 at 01:14 PM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

I was cleaning out my purse and found 3 or 4 percs in a bottle. I didn't take any. Yay!!!
I just got home from running errands and taking the dogs to the park. I'm tired but in a good way. It is a beautiful fall day---a great day to be clean and sober. It's time to rest. I didn't call my doc for the liver test but plan to tomorrow.

End of day 1 percocet detox

Posted 09-30-2010 at 07:36 PM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

The only detox side effects that i have had is diarrhia and a little bit of a runny nose. The yawns and the achy brakeys are gone. I even took the dogs for a pretty long walk. I know that the l-tyrosene helped with the blahhs.

It felt weird to not drink and listen to music when my husband got home. He walked in with a 6 pack and I didn't get mad; but i didn't like it either. At some point I AM going to tell him I don't want him to drink anymore. I'm not going to pretend that it's...
