Which is worse, Lorazepam or Cocaine?

My wife, alas, is suffering from 'High Anxiety Syndrome' and has been for a year now. I am now her carer and have to be with her twenty-four hours a day so my life is in total abeyance. I have no complaints and am not looking for sympathy as she looked after me for the first thirty-five years so I look at it as being my turn now.

But I am looking for help.

The doctors, in their wisdom, had put her on one miligram tablets of Lorazepam a day and this is as habit forming as cocaine. She now has to been weaned off them.

Fortunately for me, I have had some experience of weaning people off drugs. Fifty years ago I had a friend, a Welshman Poet who I helped wean off cocaine. It was a nightmare, but this is how I know Lorazepam is so bad.

To cut a long story short, I am desperately looking for someone whose spouse has been on Lorazepam, and is in the throes of weaning them off this terrible drug.

The objective is to keep in touch and help each other via email and the telephone.

If you know of anyone, please put them in touch with

Thank you for your patience.
