> "monkey on my back",you hit the nail on the head.These days,I dont feel bad on the klonopin,I do worry about years passing and then I dont feel so good on it.Yes,"prepare for it to suck"-Ive had a small taste of that,and do I ever dread it,but you cant go over it,you must go through it.Question is,when is a good time in my life to go through it?
---------------------------------------
From what I've observed over the years (I'm 59), people stop their unwanted (and I emphasize unwanted) addictions only when they're ready, and for their own reasons. For me, it was when I realized that I was a captive of both the meds and the doctors who prescribed them. Some can taper off, some can go cold turkey, and some require formal inpatient rehab. Quitting is only half the problem - staying off being the other half. Seems that the first year or so is the worst.

It's very strange how I was able to quit psych meds and cigarette smoking, but I can't get a handle on diet and exercise, even though I'm overweight, have high blood pressure and am borderline diabetic). Our motivations are very much our own.
