Hi, I am beginning my perc taper today so maybe we can detox together. I am using the detox recipe at the top of this board and tapering 5 mg. percocet a day. i presently take 5 10mg tablets a day. I know that doesn't seem like very many but i am physically addicted and love the feeling of well being. When i ran out early one month my doc put me on 49 per week. I have been taking 6 or 7 a day. I don't even know who i am with out the percs. I have been on them for over 4 years. I am also a recovering alcoholic and had 10 years of sobriety when i started abusing the percs. I have had periods of sobriety of 9 months, 6 months, and 30 days a couple of times. I have about 37 days of sobriety now.

So I am going to taper 5 mg a day and will be clean by 7/16/08. Today is 7/6/08. I am using the detox plan, I have used it before and it works. I am also using aleve and increasing my wellbutrin and taking 1500 mg l-tyrosene to aleviate the pain and depression. In the past the "blahs" were terrible and went on for weeks. The l-tyrosene really helps.

My goals are:

#1 To be clean, to be free from percocet, truly clean and sober.
#2 To stop the constipation. I go every 5 days! It is so unhealthy having all that waste in my body.
#3 I won't have to take these pills every 4 or 5 hours. (If I wait to long or forget my pills, i get the akey brakeys)
#4 I will be the real me.

I hope i helped. At any rate you can find me here each day as i taper. I need the support and feedback of the people on this board. Thanks.
