amper just thought i would come back and read this - wish it was in a blog so others could read it and it would be easier to access.

i know it is not politically correct but i just busted out laughing when i read how you took all your valium in a fit of determination and anger and then jumped in with both feet.

this is great stuff for those forced to go cold turkey - cause there are people that will not get another prescription - there are people who will be treated like it is all in their head - nothing to it.

so it is good to see the steps you took to deal with going cold turkey - what worked what didn't and how you dealt with it.

Hey [...]... unfortunately, this is not the cold turkey board.  I won't advocate CT because it is dangerous... I just happened to get away with it.   If someone really needs to know anything about CT, they can PM me.  Otherwise, I can't stick my neck out and say "It's do-able."   After talking to kayjay, I realized how sick she is on just 2.75mgs of Xanax.   I had to be very careful as to what I said to her... I was very careful and I paid attention to what she said, how she sounded and I used my gut instinct.  :socool:

Peaches,

  It was [...] who did the CT, not [...].  If you want to read about his experience, go to the forum page, go to General Withdrawal Support (which is the section you are in now), and find the thread called "[...] is over the Hump".  

Peaches, what solutions are you looking for?  

The best way to have your questions answered is to start a new thread in the New Member introduction section.

peaches - amper has had a lot of experience with this stuff - do not follow his example please.

he pretty much knew what he was getting into and has been on and off of these before.  i did not support his decision but i appreciated the experience of his adventure for the use of those that HAVE NO CHOICE.

it is not a cake walk tapering off benzos and the repercussions of a cold turkey can be very very very hard on someone.  so please do not even consider this option.

Peaches,

  If you are considering a CT, please think again. I have had two disasterous experiences with CT. Once on my own, once in a detox clinic.  I was almost driven mad.  Please listen to [...] and me when we tell you this should not be an option for quitting your benzos.

XXXXX
