I do not understand why you took offense to my statement. All I said was that any user of benzodiazepines takes however many doses necessary per day to maintain consistent blood levels. In your case, you only need one dose because you're getting the relief you need from its active metabolites (I have stated in the past that many cases of "GAD" can be treated with 10mg diazepam at night). Diazepam itself does not have a long half-life. In fact, it diffuses rapidly in and out of the CNS (faster than any other benzodiazepine, which is why it is the treatment of choice for status epilepticus).

There may be people out there who malign users of benzodiazepines as "drug addicts"--as if there are "good" and "bad" drugs. I am not one of them.
