Latest Blog Post, Blog 8, Healing Crisis
Thank you for visiting Beating
Benzos. This site was created to provide information, help and encouragement for those who have been prescribed benzodiazepine drugs and are in the process of tapering from these or have already withdrawn. Please read My
Drug History for full details of the drugs I was prescribed over the years.
I started my journey on Nitrazepam, a benzodiazepine prescribed by my doctor for sleep problems, forty years ago. This is my story and
how I am slowly conquering an intense and difficult withdrawal.
My passage through those years is told in My Story. Extracts from my daily journals are also
included. Blog pages 1 to 7 form my on going recovery journey from April 2014, seventeen months after I stopped the drug (when I finally felt well enough to write) to the present day. Please use the Blog
Index to directly access the older posts you would like to read.
I hope the pages contained here will provide everyone with belief and inspiration that this difficult journey does eventually end however long
it may take. Always remember many thousands have travelled this road before you and recovered. It all ends, it really does.
