Some helpful affirmations :)


Recommended Posts

I may not understand this complex withdrawal process, but I accept that positive changes are taking place.


I trust that the outcome will be full recovery of my nervous system.


In the meantime, when a symptoms persists, I surrender.


I know that resisting will only increase my anxiety and make me feel worse.


And so, I acknowledge what is happening without struggling or questioning why.


I know these symptoms are only present because I am on my way to being


benzo-free and fully recovered.


I accept any discomfort or other sensation as a necessary path to my recovery.


I know that when this process is complete – right on schedule – I will be well again.


With this knowing, I take control of my recovery by completely letting go.


I am able to exhale. I breathe deeply and relax into this moment.


I release all concerns about my symptoms,


trusting that like other benzo survivors before me,


I WILL recover. I cope well, today, and every day until then.


I am grateful for my healing. This too, shall pass.


I found it somewhere on the net, printed off for my b/f, putting it on his wardrobe to ready a few times a day

I love the poem!!  I think it is wonderful how supportive you are to your boyfriend.  He really needs you to be strong for him.  And you are and it will make your relationship better.

Gonna get a tatoo with this on my chest backwards so I can read it in the mirror every morning!  :P


Okay, second thoughts maybe I should just print it out and sellotape it beside the mirror  :thumbsup:


Thanks for this, it's lovely.
