    After a few months of tapering down off valium (diazepam) have gotten down to 4mg which I just threw out (doctor said I could)as there will be no withdrawal from now on the dose is too low. I am now BENZO FREE. Very little withdrawal was had. I am so happy with myself. I have acccomplished something! Go me! Benzo free for life now AND no anxiety! So proud of myself, didn't think I could do it but I did :) I got from 30mg down to zero :)

    Drinks are on me, who wants a glass of bubbly? =)

    Me-I would love to raise a glass with you in honor of your achievement! I would also love to hear you describe how you got yourself to this point in your recovery (if it's not too much trouble). Congratulations! Well done-LT

    Thank you so much @lifetalkz It wasn't easy but with changing how I think is how I got to this point. I am grateful for what I have and not envious of what I do not have. I have made peace with myself. I'm engaging in counselling which is working very well, I am on other medications as well. I have a very supportive family (most of the time :p ) My older sister is my rock! She always says the right things at the right times, she's amazing and she herself is recovering from cancer, I love her with all my heart. Talking to folks on here too plays a big part which is why I am always here, I love helping people even feel slightly better, I love when I am able to brighten up someone else's day, I love to see people improve and talk about their successes (like I have just done), people don't give themselves enough credit for their achievements! Thanks so much for congratulating ne!
