Good luck flushing the system out. I've noticed on more than a few of the threads here the urgent desire for folks to be rid of drugs. An admirable goal and one I had with much fortitude. Then I realized that I was doing more to exacerbate the problem by trying to be drug free than to reconceptualize my pathology (chronic insomnia) as something that is imperfect about me and requiring perhaps long term, if not permanent drug intervention. So now, I just try to minimize the dosage but no longer crave to be in such self control as to no longer need anything. I'm much healthier, feel better, significantly less depressed doing my cocktail of small dose klonopin and pot each night and continuing to explore other interventions (e.g., accupuncture).
The demons of insomnia are horrible and, at least for me, I can usually lock them away with the knowledge that drugs are okay and not just another demon to be rid of.
It just works for me
