Acceptance

The following are just ideas that some members have found to be especially helpful for dealing with the problems encountered in withdrawal.

______________________________________________________________________

"The more you fight the symptoms, the worse you'll feel. The more you tell yourself, "This can't possibly be happening to me," the longer it will keep happening. The more you catastrophize about the severity or duration of your withdrawal, the stronger the symptoms.

It took me months to get to a place where I could admit that my life had been changed drastically by benzodiazepine withdrawal, and it took me months after that to stop fearing the symptoms. Acceptance has been the easiest way through. No matter what each day or night brings, if I'm able to step back, analyze what's going on and see it as a product of withdrawal, then move on as best I can, the more quickly I recover. Acceptance, in benzo withdrawal, is everything."
