With a 60+ half life, 24mgs plus half of your dose from the day before is
much more than your
brain can use. 4mgs is
enough to block 80% of the emotional centers in
the brain. Lots of people taper off after 6 years, hang around and meet a few. First, you will learn about subs, then how people did it, and what steps after quiting are needed. Nutrition and exercise will need to be addressed, pre existing pain too. There is a way. You post sounded like you were venting.
