Hi all, I've been reading the forums for a while and decided to join yesterday. I've posted in the new member section with a bit of info about SWIM - used cannabis, painkillers (still on) and not much else. I would like to try either Xanax or Valium, but is not sure which would be more suitable to get through a typically dull/stressfull day? I am also concerned about the dangers of quitting, resulting in seizures/death - any certain way to avoid this? If SWIM were to usse Xanax at say 1 or 2mg a day for a few weeks and then quit cold turkey, what are the chances of serious side effects as a result? Is the dose irrelevant? Also, is this risk carried with all benzos? Many thanks.
