Percocet withdrawal cold turkey-will one half a Percoet 10 restart my withdrawal from the beginning?

withdrawal from Percocet can i take one half to stop withdrawal symptoms or will I have to start over again and step one of the withdrawal when that wears off?

plus you may not even feel it. you have to want what is waiting on the other side, and believe me, it's there. please hang in there. prolonging the agony only makes you feel like a failure. stopping is stopping. you want your life back, yes?

I thought it would make the withdrawal less severe.  I was taking 10-15 Percocet 10 and stopped suddenly.

I was taking a similar amount---I went ct--------taking 1/2 will lead to many more-----you have to know you will get better but it will take a few days of bad funk before you start feeling better---------You can do it if I did------Best regards, Jon

Many of us have kicked this cold turkey. Don't prolong it by taking more. You can do this.
Hang in there. Look at the Health Pages here at the top of page. Thomas Recipe may help.
