CNN still hasn’t reported Heather Ashton’s death, two weeks after it happened. None of the media have reported it. You’d think Lisa Ling might have posted something about it, but I can’t find anything at all. Well, I guess that’s life with Lisa Ling.

I’m not sure why they would report it. She’s only important to us, a tiny population. Why don’t you contact Lisa Ling and see what she says?

If Heather Ashton is only important to us, a tiny population, then why is CNN planning to broadcast a Lisa Ling report about the benzo problem on October 6? Surely the issue must be important to more than just our tiny population. Besides which, CNN has had two weeks to work up a story on Ashton’s death that they could have been using to promote the Lisa Ling show on October 6. I think they’re simply unaware that Ashton has died. I suppose I could contact Lisa Ling or someone else at CNN and tell them, but why would I want to do their job for them?

It’s very odd. She died two weeks ago, and there’s not a word about it in the media, anywhere. No obituary that I could find, and no news stories. Not even CNN has reported it – even though CNN is about to broadcast a show about benzos on October 6. You would think at least CNN would note the passing of this woman, whose very name has become synonymous with the benzo issue. But they haven’t, at least not that I can find.

Ashton has died

just read this on fb also. rest in peace sweet lady.
wow what a loss to everyone she touched.

there were rumors a copuple of weeks ago that she passed but then we were told no she’s just very ill.
i wonder why the family chose not to tell the public for 2 weeks of her passing?

“Many, many people living long, productive and happy lives while being dependent upon and using benzos as prescribed”

I’m curious: Does this piece with Lisa Ling address at all, people who live long, productive & happy lives while using long-term benzodiazepines as prescribed?

No it does not. That’s a different show.

Thanks for the quick response. Do you mean Lisa Ling will be doing a different show that reflects the lives of real people who are benzo dependent and continue living long, productive & happy lives? Or do you mean there is no show that you are aware of which reflects this reality that does exist? Thanks in advance.

I’m sure those people exist. Our aim is to let people know the risks, as they will not receive it in the doctors office and are being rapidly tapered. Many people doing well on benzodiazepines became harmed by trying or being forced to stop. And many don’t. This episode is a warning about the drug, not an ode to the drug. I’m unsure if such an ode exists.

You’ve answered my questions and for that I’m appreciative. I will resist the urge to question in detail any motive(s) in you choosing to use the word “ode” to describe the reality of many, many people living long, productive and happy lives while being dependent upon and using benzos as prescribed. I will continue to extend my best wishes.

Cult mob demands recovering addict “get the fuck off” Benzo Buddies… for being too happy

Go live your life!

I know a lot of us are sitting here wondering if our symptoms are caused by benzo withdrawal, or if it is an anxiety condition, or maybe a thyroid condition, or may be caused by physical health, or maybe just a symptom from life in general. Maybe all of your doctors are right, and maybe none of them are right. Maybe everything is just a label. Regardless, I just wanted to tell you guys you’re doing great. Fight for whatever you believe. Just remember at the end of the day, life is about living. It’s about having fun. It’s about family and relationships and having peace of mind. Whatever that means for you, go out and do it. I’m here to support anybody that’s about having fun and doing good things. If you are completely serious, and you don’t know how to have fun, you are not helping anybody here. You can’t live your entire life without cracking a smile. Everybody has their own way. Don’t judge another person for not being the same. My words of wisdom for the day…

What is your goal here on the board? in each post you keep saying LOL (how funny) and live your life and you do not plan to stay sober and you do not take relapse for serious and whatever. I say well if that is your opinion, go for it – but why are you here then? This is a support forum for people who withdraw from benzos. What they do is that they LIVE life. Cause they want to save their lifes.

So for everyone who reads the posts from this member – just have a look over all the posts over the profile and you will get an impression…

Man get the fuck off this forum. I’ve spent the past 9 months trying not to kill myself because of extreme symptoms. There is no living my life. Just surviving. You are either a troll or a junkie. Go away.

History of Ashton's Clinic?
« on: September 24, 2019, 09:29:15 pm »

[Buddie]

I was wondering if anyone knew more about what happened during the time Prof. Ashton closed up her clinic, esp in regards to her assistants and coworkers? Was she a solo practitioner? Often impressive researchers have students and younger co-workers that go on to carry on the work and make their own important discoveries. Anyone know why that didn’t happen here?

Cult hero Heather Ashton only treated slightly over 300 people in 12 years
