Xanax - took random amounts of tabs and pure powder for a few months willy nilly, all non-presc, about a year ago, no idea it was addictive, just thought it would chill me out. Ironically they had absolutely no effect on me whatsoever except make me seep if I took too much. I decided to stop as they did nothing for me and had a few scary events when drinking - I'm lucky I'm not dead! Thus entered hell like I have never felt!!! I reinstated on 0.5mg 4 x a day using 2mg bars which I bulk bought last July.


I got myself stable and then started on a gradual micro-taper using those bars and am currently at 0.0625 3 x a day and considering jumping this weekend :)


I made a solution out of 15 bars (30mg alp) into 60ml vodka and been reducing 0.1ml a day.


It has been an absolute breeze and haven't had a single notable side effect except for the odd tingling in the back of my head if I have missed a dose due to interdose withdrawals and I think it makes my BO smell different haha

When you have a chance, we highly recommend that you take a look at The Ashton Manual, which is an authoritative source on what to expect during withdrawal and recovery, authored by Dr Heather Ashton, who is an expert in the field. It provides a great deal of information that can be very reassuring during any stage of this process, including a list of common symptoms with helpful explanations.
