i don't think we are allowed to comment on tapers, but with that said, you are under a doctor's care, which is good, and gradual tapers are good, and that is gradual so ...  Imo you will still have withdrawals ... but you will be able to handle it.  Have you read the Ashton Manual?  I would do a little research and be prepared.  It can be done, and you will do it!  but I don't think ct is the way.  Good job!  You will be glad you did this.  :)

Cat, I have never been on benzos, but my girl friend was and I do know you have to go very slow, very slow and according to how your body is feeling. Sometimes doctors try to taper a person too fast. Just be careful and go according to how your body feels.

Prayers for you

Depends on your anxiety and stress level. You've been on a long time as I have which is a major factor. I would personally not go that fast.
