correct---if i may save one person from inappropriate long-term benzo use, i will try. if i suceed they'll never even know. so i expect no accolades. if i fail, they will hopefully join me and benzos.org.uk, and many others against a plague of drugs that make opiates, ADs, alcohol, cigs---makes them look near silly. you talk long term moderate or high-dose benzodiazapine use? Nothing may recover the real you, save a long, often terrifying and dangerous taper-down. have you met a drug requiring 6-12 month's taper, and then perhaps a year later being hit again with full withdrawal? a withdrawal where you may not just go bonkers, thinking about shooting -up the place--you may do it---lawyers have sites on this. when it hit me, after a near year's taper and 'free' for 4 months---i Had to get to the er. a shot of ativan, 30 minutes later? normal. and millions have the same sad story---i want to protect you, anyone from that. as the net documentation is there, find for yourself, if print may save you---i will use it. what would you do? benzos have become a major global issue. why? deservedly. it's the same problem as the one-eyed man in the land of the blind. can my discripton of a rainbow ever work? i pray it may.
