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.
