Re: Am I copping out by asking for a Benzo?

Be frank with your doctor. Ask for a 30 day supply of Valium to help you get through the withdrawal of quitting drinking. Don't expect him/her to refill your prescription, however.

I don't think it's a cop-out to get time-limited help to deal with the stress of healthy change, whether it's quitting smoking, stopping drinking, or even leaving a relationship that hasn't worked out.

I think it only becomes a crutch if you continue to keep taking it rather than going to therapy and working on the issues that influence your addictions to begin with. But for short-term use, hey!, that's what it's there for.

Best of luck,

Mark H.
