No New Posts Success Stories

We strongly encourage members to post their Success Stories. It can be an invaluable source of inspiration for those still tapering or recovering to read how others have returned to (near) normal health. When posting your story, you should be:

  • benzodiazepine-free for at least two months;
  • (mostly) recovered from your experience;
  • feeling positive about the future and this should be reflected in your Success Story.

* Subscribe: Protracted Recovery Support

A minority of members experience troublesome withdrawal symptoms well past the one year mark and may benefit from interacting more closely with others who are similarly affected. We suggest joining 18-months+ after your withdrawal date, but there is no set/enforced limit for participation - join (or leave) at your own discretion/judgement. Please be sure to read the stickied/pinned threads at the top of the BPWS board.

Un grupo de suscripción para miembros que desean usar o mejorar sus habilidades en el idioma español. Solo para discusiones que no sean sobre benzo-cesación o recuperación.

A subscription group for members who wish to use or improve their Spanish language skills. For non-benzo-support discussions only.
