We had way too many of those fucking thing

2018-01-29 17:33:08 UTC  

Same here. Habanero plants deliver the goods.

2018-01-29 17:40:41 UTC  

I usually grow two habs

2018-01-29 17:41:01 UTC  

cook with them all the time and they make great salsa

2018-01-29 17:41:05 UTC  

and hot sauce

2018-01-29 17:49:33 UTC  

Next year I'm doing Ghost Peppers, FDrancisca habs, Fatalii and Shishito

2018-01-29 18:59:26 UTC  

If anyone has tips or tricks for coming off benzos: spill your guts

2018-01-29 18:59:36 UTC  

Having a hard time with this shit

2018-01-29 19:20:38 UTC  

shit dude, I wish you the best. have you been gradually tapering? I suppose it almost goes without saying, but be particularly mindful of how you're feeling at all times; alcohol and benzos are the only substances that can be fatal if withdrawing from cold turkey without being monitored in the right setting with the right medicine to help prevent seizures

2018-01-29 21:24:19 UTC  

Not cold turkey. I’m using CBD to prevent seizures. Gradual tapering you could say, but I’m making more jumps than suggested to get off quicker. It’s barely manageable but I’m doing it

2018-01-29 21:25:16 UTC  

I have sobriety in my sights and I’m not going to lose focus. With the naturals I have tried now, I know for a fact I can manage without the psychiatric drugs

2018-01-29 21:25:41 UTC  

So it’s just a miserable taper experience. Every day is pain and misery.

2018-01-29 21:34:31 UTC  

@FashyGoy1488 Dang dude, hope you get off the stuff soon

2018-01-29 21:35:27 UTC  

Working on it my dude. It’s fucking gay

2018-01-29 21:35:43 UTC  

I didn’t know what to do at the time so I started on meds

2018-01-29 21:35:51 UTC  

Now I know what to do

2018-01-29 21:36:06 UTC  

So I’m bound and determined to get off the psychiatric meds

2018-01-29 21:36:16 UTC  

It’s just a matter of time and suffering

2018-01-29 21:36:37 UTC  

I will come out on top of this. Eventually.

2018-01-29 21:36:56 UTC  

Taking a big cut in dose this week so it’s been brutal

2018-01-29 21:37:03 UTC  

But I will be off meds faster this way

2018-01-29 21:37:11 UTC  

And that’s real important to me

2018-01-29 21:40:53 UTC  

You'll be stronger for it

2018-01-29 21:40:59 UTC  

I was taking 12 pills a day

2018-01-29 22:06:57 UTC  

That was my peak too

2018-01-29 22:06:58 UTC  

Holy shit fam

2018-01-29 22:07:25 UTC  

I’m coming off what was a peak of needing 4mg of Xanax to make it through 24hrs

2018-01-29 22:07:40 UTC  

Now I’m on about half that

2018-01-29 22:07:44 UTC  

@FashyGoy1488 when I was quitting I thought consciously about every reason why I hated Jews. Helped take my mind off things

2018-01-29 22:08:07 UTC  

Yeah anything external really. Thinking about anything BUT yourself is quite helpful

2018-01-29 22:08:18 UTC  

I wish I knew what I know now before agreeing to take meds

2018-01-29 22:08:26 UTC  

But it’s ok

2018-01-29 22:08:32 UTC  

I’ll get through this

2018-01-29 22:08:34 UTC  

Hail Victory

2018-01-29 22:15:45 UTC  

At my peak I was taking between 6 and 8mg of xanax a day

2018-01-29 22:16:23 UTC  

my job was causing an enormous amount of stress

2018-01-29 22:18:12 UTC  

Yeah I’m f/t college and work

2018-01-29 22:18:25 UTC  

And I put a lot on my plate because I’m very ambitious

2018-01-29 22:18:33 UTC  

And I’m always thinking in the future

2018-01-29 22:18:40 UTC  

Causes a great deal of anxiety
