I will be jumping in the next 6 weeks - finally. When I started this mess I had no idea I would still be tapering a year later, but 'VOILA' here I am.  I will be very glad when this is done, and I do not have any trepidation about the jump because I know that I did everything I could to make this a proper taper. To be free of this ball & chain will be great.

[...]; How are you doing w/ the 1 mg of Valium? Anything under 2.0 and things can get ugly for me. Now at 1.75 mg and having good and bad days. Good for you for getting to 1.0 mg.!

Hey Better days....the 1mg is fine...no problems at all for me. Sometimes I think that I could jump right now and be no worse off for it. I am aware that not everyone is the same, but for me I almost feel like i am off the benzos at this point.  We will see what happens after I jump. Fingers crossed.

"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.

Where have you been all of my life?  :) [...]

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 ::).

There is not a day that has gone by that I haven't thought about c/ting because it usually feels like I already am  :-\ but that tells me if I c/ted my brain would really be fried.

Bringing this topic back up again. Anyone going sky diving????? I am really thinking of it....Down to 1.25 of v. for 5 days now and feel worse after I take it. Feel pretty normal until I take my dose so I am thinking again...I promised myself I would go slow and steady and not make the same mistake I made 5 yrs. ago. Ended up going too fast and in protracted.

Is there a voice of reason out there? I have been making .25 mg cuts and holding for 3 weeks. Pdoc wants me to get down to .50 mg.

Listen to your Pdoc... they are not always wrong despite what we may think.

Thanks [...] - that's what I needed to hear! I know better but the closer I get the more impatient I get.  I will put the parachute away for now :idiot:.
