Michelle…I recently came off of Clonazepam. I was addicted to it for over 12 years.

I’ve been itching to write about it but it’s still so fresh. Even after almost 8 months without any benzo I still have withdrawals. I have not been able to get my anxiety under control despite my best efforts.

It helps to know that other people understand the hell I went through all those months. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to quit.

And I thought quitting smoking was hard!
