Seeking support


Recommended Posts

Hi. I took my last benzo on 6/17/16. I hope to meet individuals suffering withdrawal symptoms, and  uild hope that depersonaliation will end. To talk with people who understand what I  going through would be wonderful and assist me through this  horrific journey. Thank you

Hi  :) Welcome to BenzoBuddies!


Congrats on being benzodiazepine free. I am sorry you feel so badly. I don't think I had used the word "horrific" ever in my life until I detoxed from 8 mg of Ativan. I have used it hundreds of times to describe my withdrawal. I too had DP and DR, so my heart goes out to you. The early months of withdrawal can be extremely difficult to say the least. You will get plenty of support here. We do understand what you are going through and the collective wisdom of our membership is enormous.



You might like to check out The Ashton Manual it is an authoritative source on what to expect in withdrawal and recovery.  Dr. Ashton is an expert in the field. 


Please feel free to post to any of the dedicated boards, we have a wonderful community of people here, who will give sound advice. Members have been through all aspects of benzodiazepine use and withdrawal and are more than willing to share their experiences.


Members discuss their symptoms on the Post withdrawal recovery support.


Please take the time to Create a Signature.  This will allow others to see where you are in the process so they can better support you.


Again Welcome!  :smitten:
