I had stopped when I began withdrawal but Valium is kicking my but a bit It is tolerable on workdays since my job requires me to move around and that seems to help. But at home on weekends and trying to be productive in front of a computer, not social media mind you, I am borderline hopeless. Drinking a cup as I write this

How long have you been drinking coffee?
I often feel the same way because my bp pills cause such a “downer” effect that I want something to get me motivated to start the day. I just bought some decaf but have had regular coffee when I do have it. Been having more of it lately, which kind of scares me.
I know it’s a very slippery slope because my nerves aren’t healed yet, and I’ve had a terrible problem with anxiety. Coffee is always on my mind, though, and instead of being an alcoholic and looking in bars, I’m walking by cafes and wishing I could drink all the coffee I want. And there are many cafes where I live, so it’s a constant battle. I used to love coffee. I still love it, but it’s always been a double-edged sword in the benzo mess.
