Clonazepam Weaning

I have been taking 1 mg daily of clonazepam for 3 weeks and am weaning off...After only three weeks is it safe to go cold turkey, or should I still decrease for the next few days/weeks?

I would wean down to .5 for 3 days then .25 for 3 days then see what happens.

Thanks Ryan, I've never taken this type of medication before, so excuse my ignorance but what does "b.i.d" mean?
I DO take 0.5 mg's twice a day...
So I'm assuming I cut it in 4 fand take 3/4th for 3 days, then half for 3 days, then 1/4th for 3 days, then I'm done. Right?
Thanks again...
