Hi there, I am new to this site. I am 19 years old and have had a bad addiction to perc 30mg. I have put myself through detox before but the symtims are 10 times worse than the first time I stopped. I am on day 2 and am doing this cold turkey. I feel like a prisoner in my own body. The aches, pain, runny eyes and nose, sleeplessness basically the whole 9. I need some help. I just moved out on my own and don't have parents in my house to help me get through this. My Roomate would hate me of he found out what I'm going through. Can someone please give some advice and what to expect day by day. I can't stay home all day I have college courses and work to also put up with. I was up to two 30 mg percs a day, also I would smoke them on tin foil. I'm not sure if that has any difference from popping or snorting them. I feel like hell. Can someone tell me what to expect day to day when the aches and depression will go away and when my natural energy will come back. All support and advice needed. I know I can do this I just need a little help. Thanks! Bp19
Hi. It's great that you're reaching out for help. You're at a relatively low dose, so just know that as bad as you feel, it will be worse if you keep using them and (inevitably) upping the dose. Smoking Perks sounds a bit odd, they are mostly acetaminophen (Tylenol), so likely 500 or 750 mg of that for every 30 mg of oxy. I strongly recommend against smoking these!
You're asking some great questions, so I wanted to bump your post back to the top as I don't have time to answer right now! I'm certain others will, and I'll try to check back when I have more time...
Hi Bp and welcome to the forum! You will find lots of advice and support here! First, everyone and every detox is a bit different. Typically, the withdrawal symptoms last about a week! For me, the worst days were 3 through 5, and then I started feeling better! Please check out the Thomas Recipe, the link is at the bottom right side of this page! There are vitamins and natural supplements that you can take which will help ease the symptoms! The most important things are to stay very well hydrated, drink lots of water, Gatorade! Take Immodium for stomach/bathroom issues, and try to get some exercise! Even taking short walks will help! If you can't or don't feel like eating, try to drink protein shakes like Ensure or Boost!
For success, you need to make sure you cut off all your sources for pills, and get yourself into some sort of aftercare program like AA/NA!
Take care and keep posting with any questions or if you need some support! I wish you all the best! You can do this!
