Forgive me...I am new to this site and have no idea what I am doing, so please be patient. I think just sent this same message to a poor stranger looking for direction and support....I dont have direction and definatley no support.
I guess this is when I say hi...Hi. I just wanted to maybe put my dirty little secret out there for the someone to hear. Maybe you have a similar situation or story??
I was perscribed Valium for a panic disorder a couple of years ago and became quickly hooked and I soon doctor shopped for them...Crazy crap I know, but i got help and got off them. Since then I have become an alcoholic due to a marriage breakdown and have been perscribed Valium again....Bad move I have only been off the piss three days now and I am straight into munching the benzo's. I am so scared. They arn't even calming me down now, they are making me very hypo. It is 3.10am her in Australia and I have had atleast 40mg..I cant believe how the addiction can stay with you so long. I think i will have to get off the piss cold turkey. I have been drinking a cast of red every two days and it could be dangerious but I dont need the stress of having another addiction. Does anyone have a similar situation ao any ideas why the benzos are having an oppisite effect on me now?
Hi this is Kitt...................You must not be taking large amounts of valium and drinking or you will wake up dead. Is that plain enough. II have worked with the people in detox and what you need is to go to a rehab program and get off both the alcohol and the benzos as you are using both for the wrong reason.
I do not mean to be judgemental but what you wrote scares me. Often people under the influence forget how many pills they have taken and Valium is a depressant and well as alcohol.
