@allysondayle, what isn’t for you? I highly recommend looking into supplements to help ease out of anxiety and if its a fast acting benzo, keep some around in case of attacks you can’t cope with until you feel confident that you can handle most situations. If its one of the slower, eight hour benz, then its up to you, whatever is comfortable. Sure, push the comfort zone, but the idea here is to re learn to cope while sober and form new behavior patterns that can become familiar to you. When looking up supplements, also consult forums and boards for anxiety – this will help you relate and give you a better idea of what to expect realistically. Very important to do your research in depth as some supplements will interact with meds or could have adverse reactions and give you opposite effects. Diet and exercise do wonders to help you feel empowered because, well, your brain is attached to the rest of you. Help it all.

@lurch
, weed doesn’t help everyone and in some cases can cause depression or panic attacks, please become more informed on how cannabis chemically works in the brain to have the reputation that it does as anti anx or antidep and why sometimes it does the opposite.
