Excellent for Other Withdrawal

100 mg oral Pharms - Chlordiazepoxide
From 19 to 23 I was quite a hard core alcoholic and weed smoker. Could never quite get away from it, I suppose I was just self medicating for depression and general anxiety.

About two years ago I discovered something called Phenibut and my friend gave me a sample batch of like 20 grams when I was trying to quit drinking. It was amazing. Took all the withdrawal symptoms away and made me chatty, energized, motivated and sleep like a baby through the night.

Well two years later and I find myself hopelessly addicted to phenibut and sought the help of a doctor.
I find myself hopelessly addicted to phenibut and sought the help of a doctor.

I was perscribed a 12 week tapering plan, starting at 100 MG (4 25mg tablets) to be taken 3 times a day. Once upon waking up, once half way through the day.

It was rather slow to kick in and I was in agony from muscle spasms and oversensitive eyes/ears but when it did work I just felt this wave of relaxation slowly creep over my body starting at my cramping feet and up my legs, then my spine and it was like they just all gave up and released their tension.

So The rest of the day I slept after not really sleeping for two or three days while going through phenibut withdrawal.

I feel however that 100 mg may have been too high however because as I write this a couple hours after my morning dose I feel like an emotionless drone. Not happy. Not sad. Walking two blocks to the corner store for a coffee took real effort. But hey, at least my legs aren't painfully spasming. So that is good.

Librium also completely took away any withdrawal anxiety as well and I guess I just feel at peace.

Dunno why anyone would use this recreationally. Unless they like being a potato.

Will be considering lowering my next dose to 75mg.
Just be care.

Benzo addiction is serious.
