Weed should definitely be a life sentence tho. Especially if you are both obese and self medicate with it.

Yea my stepdad has been on roughly the same dose of oxy for like 6+ years. I dunno how he isnít constipated but he doesnít seem to get that side effect

Substances are like keys fitting into the lock of someoneís DNA. Some keys fit perfect, and those people feel a far more intense high and will usually willingly overtake a set amount, rapidly building tolerance

And I was going to mention there are meds which someone can take at the same doseage for life. But benzos from what Iíve heard are generally not one of those. Not saying itís not possible, but itís not the norm. Or maybe it canít become the norm, because there are far less willing to prescribe it these days

I have to ask every psych patient I see what meds they are on as part of the psychosocial part of the chart, so I keep track of the newest common stuff I hear. Itís usually hydroxizine or vistril for anxiety these days

It's a charm. The tell is, again, the tolerance curve. Mine is non-existent. If anything, I am trending down from 3mg being the norm to 2mg being the norm past few years. The condition "wears out" alongside with other things.


Hospital protocols hate benzos. It is also state-hassled med. Pain meds are hassled. But that's why I've had the same p-doc, private practice, for 14 years now. I've seen his son grow up.


Anything trying to half-measure what a benzo is for, or at the opposite extreme bending how it works, is asking for trouble. Just let it be. But as a "sleep aid"?



That just sounds like trouble. Find something else. You will hit a tolerance wall with being sleepy/feeling itchy and then yer in trouble. If you really have trouble sleep, ask for a very small dose of an atypical antipsychotic. But that's gonna change ya.

Benzos are safer than offlabel use of drugs like

Quetiapine
Brand name: Seroquel

Or stuff like Prozac.

All of which drastically increases suicidality and triggers homicides. Mass violence. (Shooting ppl driving cars into crowds or in rare cases the subjects cold turkey some how survive and manage to build a bomb without killing themselves).

Anyway the difference is lawyers and liability. If you got $$$ and aren't a criminal u get benzos if you're homeless or on public Healthcare (Obamacare) u get the suicide/homicide pills.

Benzos aren't that much safer or effective. They are way more pleasant tho.

If you get given a diagnosis for non benzos u are in for a real world of hurt. I can't tell you what you should do.

I mean, getting "dangerously" addicted happens, but it is a) predictable and b) avoidable.



You have a substance. You can know what it is. You then ask yourself what to do, applying Roger's Four Rules of Gambling. And yeah, it's your hand. Yours alone.



I don't get why some people play at some tables. It's a cry for friggin help.

Which is nice to know when 40 MILLION Americans take these drugs.

They tried to make me go to rehab, but I said I'm tracking for DKP.

Yes, I've been black, but when I come back, I'll have FT3.

My ďknock out cocktailĒ for sleep includes: unisom sleep tablet + 10mg melatonin + Benadryl + a small sip of z-quil. All of these taken at the same time can usually power through the 250-300mg caffeine pre-workout I took ~5 hours before

But sometimes not. But Iíve had chronic insomnia my entire life that I inherited from dad. Sometimes I can not even take pre-workout at all, and take double of the things I listed above, and not get 1 minute of sleep. But itís not much of a problem, I can work a full shift on no sleep no problem. 2 nights no sleep gets tougher, I start to get really drowsy while driving, but have never had an issue working a full shift on that either

On the rare times I go 3 nights no sleep Iíll usually call out at that point because driving gets too risky

Feel free to lecture me about it but Iíve heard it all before :/

I was in rehab even though I had never used drugs and wasn't an alcoholic at the time.

I went to the VA Hospital for help with PTSD, and they pretty much locked me in a psych ward and the wing I was in was nothing but rehab patients. I was the only person in there who was in there for PTSD. I remember that we weren't allowed to have anything but water the entire time I was in there. Some girl got in serious trouble after she got her visitation with her boyfriend and he tried to sneak her a mountain dew in. I didn't even know caffeine was considered a drug at that time.

I remember the day I got out though, I drank a cup of coffee, and I got insanely high off of it. So I guess there's some truth to that.

I also started playing WoW again after not touching it for years because Cataclysm had just came out, and this girl in there kept talking about how bad she wanted to play it, and we agreed to play when we got out. We exchanged emails, but I got out first and started playing it. When she got out she e-mailed me and told me she was sorry, but she had a boyfriend (she was fat, I didn't even want to date her? lol).

But by that point I was already addicted to WoW again.

Crazy times.
