Are we a small minority?

Apologies if this is in the wrong forum, or if it’s been posted before.
Are we, who undeniably have been done tremendous harm because of the reckless over prescription of benzos, in quite a small minority? I know thousands of people use this resource and thank God for it. But given how widespread the use of these drugs is (tens of millions of users?), if the suffering we are going through afflicted even a significant minority of those people, it would be impossible to keep a lid on it, and the condition would be more widely known. Surely.
I’ve had 3 GPs in the last year and I am satisfied they know absolutely nothing about benzo WD. Genuine ignorance.
Are we just incredibly unlucky?

Why do you blame doctors and/or psychiatrists for drug addiction? What about the patient’s responsibility? None? Zero? Detox facilities/units know very little about successfully detoxing addicts from benzos? Are you kidding? Doctors/psychiatrists are ALL ignorant (except Ashton)? Do you have a medical degree? Do you have any medical education, at a legitimate university, at all? Or are they ALL controlled by Big Pharma? Tens of millions of people have been helped by BZDs. The overwhelming majority of those people have no issue whatsoever stopping the medication. Those that do are not even a tenth of a percent. Your campaign is anti-science, and thus anti-human. Thank God you will never change anything.
Hard to see them leaving my comment up, much less responding to it in a sane manner, so putting it here for posterity.

Alprazolam /ælˈpræzəlæm/ or /ælˈpreɪzəlæm/, available under the trade name Xanax … The first approved indication was panic disorder and within two years of its original marketing Upjohn’s Xanax became a blockbuster drug in the US.
Those of us who took it on a long term basis are now paying for corporate greed, BIG MEDICINE greed, and BIG PHARMA greed in spades…
What can we do to put an end to this?
