Like many of you I got on the benzos through the doctors. When it was time to come off I was basically told to cold turkey. As you can imagine it was hell for four months until I could stabilize.
I was originally on Ativan, but had a series of mess ups with the titration and kept upping my dose. Also I think the short half life was a real problem. Finally in November I crossed over to K.
Anthea and Anne were very kind with words of support and wisdom. I don't know where I would be without this site. In addition, I read all of the success stories from those who got off benzos. Those stories were very encouraging. I am sure glad that the water titration method was discovered, because it was very easy for me.
Best wishes to you all,
