Zopiclone and cocaine and alcohol abuse!.Thread discussing

I have been abusing cocaine alcohol and zopiclone!. in the past year, i've added zopiclone and the zolpidem dose is gradually increasing.

wendl--i feel for you, those symptoms are so bad. when you quit compley for a few months, how did you do that and what was it like? withdrawals? It sounds like having someone there with you made a big difference. I can understand that. It's good just that you take less some nights. But those symptoms are rough. i don't know what symptoms i'm going to get when i stop taking the z meds, maybe tapering, maybe not, depending on how it goes. i don't seem to get noticeable withdrawal symptoms during the day, or even late at night when i haven't had the meds since around 4am.
