While I was on benzos, I ate a lot. It was another way to cope with stress. (Along with alcohol and isolation). During my w/d alone I lost 20 pounds. I’m 26 days benzo free now and my really difficult mental sxs are starting to go away. Within the past week however, I have been overeating including binge eating. I did have a difficult social engagement on Saturday that I’m recovering from. Have my mental sxs shifted to behavioral coping like bingeing? I’ve also been hiding and hoarding food and eating alone. I’m grateful I’m not dealing with the really difficult thoughts as much but the overeating behaviors are really not healthy. Anybody else experience overeating post w/d? Is it a part of coping? A sign that I continue to heal? I feel if I restrict, the negative thoughts will come back. It’s hard for me to moderate. Thanks for your shares and thoughts

Yeah. I lost over 30 pounds (~14kg) from my acute, and when my stomach recovered and I could eat again I managed to put all of it back on in about three months.

Thanks for posting, […]. Did you binge eat? Why am I bingeing? I know I’m doing it and I know it’s unhealthy. I’m obese. I don’t need to put it back on. I want to get my healthy weight back that I had before I started any of these f’ing psych meds.

I have constant obsessional craving to binge every moment I am awake. I have been fighting it since end of last year.

It got so bad when I was off completely my brain was telling me to eat non-edible objects, my hand picked up raw meat from the counter and tried to put it in my mouth.

I crave sugar and carbs which I never did prior to this.

It’s like when illicit drug addicts gain weight – new “sober” sensations make things different. Food tastes amazing to me. It’s normal but needs to be controlled. A tip I have is drinking water with red cider vinegar – helps fill you up.

I haven’t experienced this YET in withdrawal, but I can certainly identify with the binge eating when I was still on kpin. I too lost quite a bit of weight when I jumped. I don’t know the answer now, but just wanted you to know I understand am right there with you! Hang in there.

I can’t taste or feel anything in my mouth properly.

Sometimes things taste rotten and disgusting.

Benzo Buddies member admits site anti-psychiatry (like Scientology)

“Well I said I wasn’t going to come here again but this comparison to Scientology I can’t seem to let go because it’s just not the same. CCHR may be a Scientologist organization, but BB is not.

“You can be a member of BB and not be anti psychiatry. But you can also be critical of psychiatry and not a Scientologist.

“There is a difference. Sorry but that is fact. You can leave BB without your life being threatened or destroyed. You also can have whatever faith you belong to on BB- Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Atheist, etc.

“Also Scientologists seem to be anti psychiatry for the sake of it, BB members are usually anti psychiatry because they have suffered at the hands of the profession.”  – Angela, Benzo Buddies member

No, Benzo Buddies is not a Scientology organization – per se. I never said it was. I said Benzo Buddies promotes many of the same ideas / conspiracy theories regarding psychiatry. Over the past several years, hundreds of members have posted CCHR propaganda at the site. Despite official denials, Benzo Buddies is an anti-psychiatry and anti-psychiatric medications site. Benzo Buddies is riddled with Scientology-sympathizers. All of that, and more, makes Benzo Buddies function as a Scientology agent of influence. 

This following is from the Benzo Buddies Rules and Guidelines: 

“Although we are not ‘an anti-benzo website’, we are dedicated to help those who wish to quit benzodiazepines. We therefore require that you do not promote the use of benzodiazepines within the BenzoBuddies community, as this would be contrary to our Mission Statement.”

If a member insists benzodiazepines have helped them that member is usually banned, after being harassed by the staff and members.

The basic ideas of Benzo Buddies are:

  1. benzodiazepines are evil
  2. doctors / psychiatrists are not educated i.e. benzo wise, we – the “accidental addicts” – know more
  3. psychiatrists are witch doctors, there is no such thing as mental illness
  4. detox doesn’t work 

Members are routinely warned away from psychiatric medication and told all of their health symptoms are merely drug withdrawal. This is both dangerous and irresponsible.

I am happy people are not murdered for wanting to leave Benzo Buddies and that other faiths, beside Ashton worship, are allowed. That’s progress and people can thank me for that. 

You’ve admitted Benzo Buddies is an anti-psychiatry site. And that is exactly why I insist Benzo Buddies is no different than Scientology – when it comes to being anti-psychiatry. You’ve also retailed one of the craziest conspiracy theories I’ve ever heard: medical doctors are out to hurt their patients. 

While Benzo Buddies does not have a shrine devoted to L. Ron Hubbard, at their site, they might as well have one as Hubbard’s disgusting ideas about psychiatry and psychiatric medication are worshiped there.
