I recently discovered a friend who is also undergoing a benzodiazepine withdrawal. He has about 55 days when I got my 8 month chip. He is my first sponsee. He is a computer specialist, going to school for an Information Technology major. I discovered he was addicted to opiates and benzodiazepines. He shared his wife was undergoing level 4 cancer of the thyroid and that it had spread throughout her body. He expressed his frustration of not being as much there for his fiancée as he would like as he is overwhelmed with the impact of benzodiazepine withdrawal.
As I am approaching my ninth month of being clean and sobriety, I am making preparations to return to Costa Mesa to get my one year chip.
I went to Celebrate Recovery last Friday, April 5th and received a 9 month chip.
