13 years of Ativan use and CT in January


Recommended Posts

I’m incredibly grateful and blown away by the support BB has given me and many others simply through reading what people have shared.  I would like to also share my experiences in hopes of supporting others and paying it forward.  I’m currently going on 5 months benzo free (CT) after taking .5 mg of Ativan as needed and still very much In recovery - but have also learned a lot in the process.  I’ve been through some of the worst parts of withdrawals but have lingering breathing and anxiety hurdles I’m working through.

Hello Riverside27 and Welcome to BenzoBuddies!


Glad to hear BB has been helpful to you and glad to have you as a new member!  Congratulations on approaching 5 months off Ativan.  As you already know BB is an excellent source of knowledge about benzo withdrawal and you will also receive support here from members who have walked this walk and understand what you're going through.


Please feel free to post.  You may want to start with Post-withdrawal Recovery Support  and

I imagine you're already familiar with The Ashton Manual


It’s helpful to create a signature so other members who want to reply to your posts can see where you are in the process. Here’s how to add your benzo info automatically to your posts: go to Profile, then Forum Profile, write your info (which benzo, dose, taper history) in the text box and save. Thanks! Let us know if you need help with this.


We're glad you found us!

Brighterday.  :)
