Some background info. I started out taking Percocet about a year ago but I have remained in fear of the drug and what it can do to a person. I started out taking only 2.5mg (1/2 of a 5mg percocet) at a time. One at about 5:30am while I am getting ready for work, one about an hour after lunch and one around 4:30pm. I remained at this dosage for probably 8 months and I found no need to do any more than this but I decided to try a little more since I had the money and the drugs. After over a year of use, I still take no more than 10mg a time and never more than 30mg a day. I still get the same high, same feeling and same euphoria associated with this class of drugs.
My special friend who gets them for me has a warrant out for her so I decided I had better stock up in case she gets busted. She sells other stuff but I don't mess with OxyContin or Morphone -- too powerful for me. Anyway, I scored 30 generic 5mg Percocets of various manufacturers (512's, Endo 602's and 54-543's) as well as 100 name brand percocet 10's (10/325) and she threw in 1 free OxyContin 10, 20, and a 40, determined to get me hooked on a higher dosage no doubt -- I'm no dummy so I will give them away to a friend I know who likes them very much. Anyway today I decided to push my limits since I had such a hellish week at work. I have been assigned a new project which is a total mess. Here's how today panned out.
T-0 5mg Percocet.
Within 10 minutes the high kicked in and I woke up quickly from my morning slumber. This is one of the reasons I like the drug so much is it's 'speed' effect it has on me. I am a Obsessive Compulsive person with many rituals in the morning. Euphoria really starts my day out nicely.
Feeling great and head into work. I love driving and no one pisses me off when I'm on percs.
Driving while intoxicated, tripping, or extremely sleep deprived is dangerous and irresponsible because it endangers other people. Don't do it!]
I take another 5mg. Feeling great. I also have Social Anxiety and the drug makes me very socialable and friendly towards others. Note I do not take any other meds for OC or SAD. I used to but they made me tired.
Lunch was at 12:00 so at 1:00 I took another 5mg. Wow, it kicked in quickly this time. I normally don't take this dose, and I was feeling great - very wired and very happy. I waited an hour for my food to settle.
Came home and took 1/2 of one of the percocet 10's at 6pm and commenced cleaning the house (another one of my OCD things) - Opiods make any movement seem fluid-like and wonderful. I truely found a way to enjoy my little quirks :)
At 10:30 I took the last half which was too much for me. Within 10 minutes I felt naucious and laid down for a few minutes. Then the nausea went away and I felt fine again but VERY 'stoned'. I knew this was too much for me but still within my threshold so I figured 'what the hell'. Well that was 3 hours ago now and I still feel awesome, getting ready to go to bed now and wanted to give a report.
I do know I am mentally addicted to it, compounded by the fear of my OCD and SAD and not wanting to go back to feeling shy and a workaholic in solitude but I am NOT phsycially dependent on it and I attribute that to moderation and fear of the substance. I have gone without it for weeks and even an entire month with no bad reactions or withdrawls but of course I wished I could have been the social butterfly I am when I am on it.
