    I was on Xanax for 5yrs and now have been off of them for a year and was the hardest thing I’ve ever done but I did it and still to this day I crave them and not sure what to do to not have these cravings?

    I also have taken Alprazalom(?) don’t know if I spelled that right, for about 7yrs and I too don’t know how to stop. (same as zanax)

    I’ve been taking them on and off for a few years and yes I do feel a little bothered when I stop. About ten years ago I went through a heroine addiction and kicked cold turkey many times. I also never crave It. Xanax withdrawal is nothing compared to that. I guess my body has built a high tolerance to withdraw.
