  1. Benzo are wayyyy more addictive than opiates. Withdrawal can last months to years. And you can’t just stop because of high seizure risk

    I’ve done both and am currently two and a half years into the Benzo withdrawal. Opiate withdrawal took 2 weeks.

    • No. It doesn’t. Weed is not physically addictive. But it IS highly enjoyable, like chocolate or pizza. But no one gets physically “addicted” to chocolate or pizza… even if it seems that way. A craving & an addiction are not the same thing.
