Racer's response to aspects of Lou's post

> It is written here,[...take the full 30 days...doc wouldn't have prescribed it if ..was dangerous...Benzo addiction is over exaggerated...].
> This brings up several questions:
> A. Are all drugs not dangerous because doctors prescribe them?

I saw this question as ambiguous. It almost sounds as though you're suggesting that it's the act of doctors prescribing them that makes all drugs dangerous. I doubt that is what you intended this question to mean.

> B. Do all doctors prescribe BZDs?

I'm not sure my podiatrist would... I wonder what your point is in asking that question?

> C. Should addiction to BZDs be discounted?

Again, I found this question ambiguous. The immediate reading, which again I doubt is what you had in mind, is whether or not "addiction to BZDs" should be put on sale, marked down, sold at a discount. I realize you probably intend a very different meaning.

> D. Are the accounts of the withdrawal symptoms of people that say that they were addicted to BZDs over exaggerated?

I thought this sentence was just a bit too long for me to read easily. I think I would have found it more readable if it had been broken up, with punctuation, into shorter clauses. I admit, though, that that is my own preference. I just think it would flow better if it were constructed differently.

> E. What is the safe amount of days that a BZD can be taken?

Again, I admit that this sentence is OK. I would probably have written it a bit differently, myself, for more precision, but there's nothing structurally wrong with it.

Lou, I have trouble reading your posts at times, because I have trouble finding the sense in many of your sentences. Back in the dark ages, when I majored in English Lit, we had to do an awful lot of writing. I'm not as good at it now as I was when I practiced, but there's still an amateur grammarian inside me. I'm certain I'm not the only one whose Inner Grammarian suggests that a more clearly and concisely written post might produce a more positive response.

I sincerely hope my feedback has been helpful to you.
