Who is planning to jump in next 90 days?
« on: March 06, 2014, 12:26:38 am »
I dont have control of my cuts.  A different Dr wanted to take me off in a month.
It looks like very highly in April Im off  Im looking forward to it and at the same
time a little scared  ok honestly big time.  I think one og the biggest obstacles really
is more so psychological side of this.  The physical part is there too.  Also looking
for thoughts and insight from benzo free members also.  Im done no later 60 days.

"Jumping" means that when people get to a certain level, after tapering down their benzo dose, they stop taking it altogether. So they "jump" off the benzo. This can have varying effects, depending on the type of taper they have done, or what dose they jump from.

Most people try to do this when their dose is as low as possible. Some like to "fade out" by cutting right down to zero mg.

Since I am at a bit over .25 of Xanax, I plan to be done by this time in April. I am both excited and nervous, but cant wait to say I am free! Good luck to you!

I m at 4.25 xanax. I hope to be close to being done in 3 ms but that will all depend on how my body reacts to the cuts. I know I would rather burn in hell than take a rescue dose so we ll just have to wait and see once I begin to taper again. Still holding from the surgery. Hoping to start again next week.

Done on June 5th - if I don't jump sooner.  I will be at .25 mg. of valium in 90 days and will stop completely.  Somedays I feel like making the jump now but will just follow the plan.......Getting my brain back 8)

[...],
I feel like jumping too. Everyday! I keep thinking back to when I went from 6 mg to 5 mg before I knew what was going on and lookie here...I survived. It was hell, but I did it. But the last thing I want after all this pain is to do anything that might screw up the healing process so slow I go :thumbsup:

Hey [...]; Me too...I have the inner dialogue pretty much everyday. Jump! No, don't jump! No, jump! No, don't jump! I feel like a slave to this crap and just want to pretend like..yeah, I could tough it out. When indeed I know better.  In a window is when I think to jump but the voice of reason always crashes the party.  Like you, I do not want to screw up the healing process and have years of suffering ::).

I'm not going to drag this out forever, but I am going to take my time.  I think 100 days will work for me to finish off the 2 mg of Valium.  The smart thing I did last week was decide to hold a while.
