Thank you and yeah I have found out that there is some really useful information here. Well Im happy to know that someone went through the same things I have even though it was a bad situation to go through. Well Im very happy to hear that you got off of it. Im glad you didnt go cold turkey because honestly it was hell. At first I didnt have any problems but then out of nowhere one night I had a bunch of seizures and had to be rushed to the hospital. Yeah I definently know Xanax is a very addictive drug. I mean I wasnt dependant on it but I took it pretty much every weekend for a couple years and I would take up to 4mg or more each time. I never had anxiety when I took it but I just liked the feeling it gave me. Well Img glad you switched to a different benzo and finally weaned off of it. Yeah I definently feel Im in control of taking Xanax. I only take a .25mg when needed and it really helps but I dont rely on them to get me through the day or anything like that. Yeah next time I go to my therapist I will talk to her about it. But like I said before she told me that most doctors think that once your a drug addict your always a drug attict and thats definently not the case with all people. But thanks I will definently talk to my physciatrist about it. No I honestly dont consider myself as a druggie anymore. I mean dont get me wrong I was to be a big partier. I smoked weed and took xanax and drank and did a lot of stuff but thats all far behind me now. I still drink occasionally when Im at a party though. Well thank you I definently know that was probably the smartest decision I have ever made. I will never consider myself as a druggie now but I used to be so when people tell my they wont prescribe my a limited amount of pills for my horrible anxiety it really hurts me. Its in my past and I want it to stay there. I probably do have a predisposition to addiction because both my parents are alcoholics and ex-druggies so its hard. Thank you so much for all your support.
