do have some recreational use but as my friends drug
book states: "people who take them recreationally take them for the same reasons as people who take them medicinally, namely, to relax, be calm, etc."
For the most part one should just avoid taking them a lot. They work best when taken as absolutely needed.
If you take a lot of them you will develop a problem and they will stop working, as with the OP it seems.
Space is right though, if you take large doses just to feel a little fucked up, as there isnt too much euphoria
, its not worth it in the long run. They wont work for your legit anxiety/sleeping problems, and benzos ARE the best thing for anxiety when used correctly.
Pretty soon youll have an anxiety problem you couldnt even have imagined before you started taking these pills. Or sleeping, in this case.
Try weaning yourself down, and get melatonin and valerian. They do work. Other than that you need to excercise and meditate and eat right.
You dont need more pills. Youve been taking a lot of xanax
, which is the worst benzo
addiction-wise. And you could get clonazapam or diazapam which might work better for sleep and be less addictive, they are also very cheap generically so swim
doesnt know what your doctor is talking about.

The reason he KNOWS it's not a addiction/dependence problem is because he will run out of his script early and takes easily 1 and a half to 2 week break between scripts, in the time he uses no benzos and just lives very uncomfortably in anxiety and no sleep.
Living with anxiety and no sleep? sounds like a withdrawl situation to swim. And swim still thinks you should take the 'holistic route' as its effects may not be noticable for awhile. but thats too bad it didnt really work when you tried it.
can often cause a lot of anxiety, in some people as much as a straight stimulant. Why dont you try stopping that for awhile?
