Hi, I have been on methadone for the past 2 yrs, and oxy for a year before that. I was taking 40mgs/day up to 60mgs/day. Every pill I popped I had a drink with it, 12pack a day. I was forced to go cold turkey to get off the dones after I lost my job because of a drug test. I am currently on day number 54 of no methadone and I still feel like I did on day 3. Is drinking alcohol everyday going to prolong the withdrawals symptoms because it is the only thing right now that makes me feel a little better?
