Benzo Buddies member hits the nail on the head: “We are a small minority”

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?

A ‘benzo epidemic’ without any victims

There are no reliable (or for that matter unreliable) statistics on the number of people allegedly victimized by Big Pharma’s benzodiazepines. The claim of millions of benzo victims is based solely on dogma created by the infamous Scientology front group mis-named Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR). If you ask any of Ashton disciples to provide evidence, of their claim, they inevitably fumble and the offer nothing but a litany of excuses on why there is no evidence to back up their spurious nonsense. Yet, if you join one of their ridiculous benzo victim groups you will hear cult acolytes repeat – like mindless sheep – that millions are suffering. They’re suffering all right – suffering delusions.

Church of Ashton: “Global governments and Big Pharma behind giant conspiracy to enslave us all on benzos”

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.

World Benzo Awareness Day manages a pathetic 388 “likes” on Facebook

In 2008, approximately 5.2% of U.S. adults aged 18 to 80 years used benzodiazepines. That amounts to 18,502,000 Americans in 2016. World Benzo Awareness Day has managed to get 388 sad people to like its page. You do the math. Yet the kooks say there is a benzo problem – an epidemic! This worldwide epidemic only exists in the Kook Echo Chamber that is the Church of Ashton. In the real world, there is no problem, no problem at all.

1800? I am sure Big Pharma is terrified.

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?
