    Hey jrox. Glad you started your own thread. You can definitely do this. Basically follow the 25% reductions every 4-7 days until you are at least at .25 mg. Then you can decide to either taper lower or do the skip days process and jump. The skip days process is very important. It allows the long half life of subs to "catch up" and slowly dissipate in your body, making for a softer landing when you jump. This plan works and it minimizes w/d symptoms. You won't need to miss work, you won't feel great but it is a small price to pay for having minimal w/d and your new clean life.

    Post as much as you need to and ask as many questions as you want. We are here for you!!

    Let us know how it is going. Keep posting!! It helps

    Have a great Easter!!

    Hello, I am on day 8 of sub withdrawal and I feel good just tired. I am having trouble sleeping at night and sometimes feel like I am going to lose my mind, because I'm so tired and my body is so awake. Had to take a hot shower at 3 am. I know everyone says take a zanax at night to help sleep. Honestly I have a high tolerance to meds and Xanax didn't help at all. Not being able to sleep makes me want to use something but I won't I've made it 8 days and hoping the end is near and I'll be able to sleep. Anyone have any advice?

    Hi Tapping,

    I hope you check back here to see if you got any replies. First off, please start your own thread. You'll only get lost posting your updates and questions on random threads. Give us more info like how long you used subs, how much per day and how much you were taking when you stopped. That will help us to help you.

    Peace,

    Cat
