When I read horror stories about tapering too fast and what comes with that, I get scared and fear makes me feel like I might not be able to do it. When I read about slow tapering and the success stories, I have hope. I took Benzos most of my adult life. If it takes half that time to be free again, Ill be one very happy old man. I am not counting days or years. I am listening to my head and body. It tells me when I can taper down again so at least I can be somewhat happy and functional.
I detoxed, off 20 mgs of valium, almost 22 months ago, I know how powerful these drugs are, as do many others who have come off in this most horrifying way. I don’t want anyone to ever feel that scared or lonely or sick.
Zoe, I am sorry you had to detox. we will never know if your cumulative amount of suffering would be greater if you had taken 22 months to taper vs your detox. Would you rather be just coming off today instead of being 22 months free?
Please understand that taking several months may be better for most people that a few days, or a few years. Too little or too much time to taper have serious draw backs.
Seek the golden mean my friend
You are an insulting sob. Get a life.

ODE TO SHAMU
SHAMU SHAMU hides away
Calls her private toy DJ
SHAMU SHAMU you can’t hide
When your mouth is open wide
SHAMU SHAMU likes to FLOOD
Because she cannot let your blood
SHAMU SHAMU such a shame
Likes to hate and hurt and blame
SHAMU’s lies will make you laugh
Because her mind is cut in half
Her brains are fried her mouth is drone
Black heart, Black heart like a stone
Garbage, junk, hate and bile
Fills her toothless mouth with vile
SHAMU SHAMU sold her soul
To the devil down the hole
SHAMU SHAMU lost her mind
Left her children all behind
People laugh and people know
Your mind is blown where did it go?
SHAMU’s mind went down the well
Down into the depths of Hell
