>Plus, I think benzos have been around for 50 years. They are addicting but not brain damaging or else they would have found out by the time valiuim turned 50

Hello Ian,
If I'm not mistaken, the first benzo drug, Librium, made its debut in 1963 and valium came around sometime after that. A number of discussions have flared on this board about the use of the word "addicting". I nearly blew up in a GP's face when I told her that I was weaning off Klonopin, and she brazenly thundered, "You're going to get addicted!" Absolute B.S.
I'd venture that the preferred phrase for this class of drugs would be "inducing tolerance or dependency." There *is* a big difference.
