> *g* I personally luuuurve diazapam.. its one of the few meds that have ever helped me (only ever takenas an emergency over very short time - 3 days max) but I won't take them due to their addiction level, and thats on my med notes, so it also won't be prescribed for me... How tempting it will be to be able to buy them in such quantity over the counter!!!
Benzos really aren't all that addictive for most people, but if you know that you're one of the people who get off on them, I think it's a good idea for you to stay away (and I *always* think it's a bad idea to self-medicate -- even if you're taking over-the-counter drugs, you should let your doctor know what you use and follow his or her advise about how to use it). If you're travelling with friends, I suggest you let them know that you feel you shouldn't be buying any Valium, so they can help you resist if you do find yourself feeling tempted.
Best of luck!
