Sweetie, you are NOT weak. Xanax is not a bad medication. It is just a medication, and should not be quit cold turky. It has nothing to do with you, it was not a weakness on your part to react to stopping it. Thats what happens to almost everybody if they stop taking Xanax right away.

Yeah, I figured that out the hard way - that stopping cold turkey is bad. And how would I wean myself off .5 mg? I guess maybe should have gone down to every other day or something. Anyway, thanks for your honest words, I really appreciate it, Friend. :)

I had a friend that was addicted to painkillers and then got off eventually. I have to say that during that process, things go a little haywire and you can't fault them for that. They'll be sick and do "crazy" things. Drugs do that to us. Now he's off and back to normal. I don't blame him for any of it. So of course, no one faults you for anything either.

That dream was pretty trippy. I've been having a few myself here and there, they just aren't coherent enough that I'd have a full memory of it, mostly it's just me waking up in a daze and wondering what the fuck just happened. If I were you I wouldn't worry so much about the drug thing. If you are consious enough to check yourself and ask yourself "Am I getting to dependent on this?" Then you are still OK. It's when you lose that introspection and the ability to "self-check" that you start having problems and no I'd never judge you. We all have our moments of weakness, it's part of being human. I for one know that I'm far for perfect and in no postion to jusge anyone least of all a friend who is trying her best. As for the paper thing, I myself put the "pro" in procrastination. I have a short paper due on Friday by midnight. Although I have some of the preliminary research out of the way, guess when I'm going to actually start the paper. Yup, on Friday... Silly me.

What you got to say?
