Sent to me from a recovered benzo friend. Though this is a positive affirmative prayer for any withdrawal from any drug.
I may not understand this complex withdrawal process, but I accept that positive changes are taking place.
I trust that the outcome will be full recovery of my nervous system.
In the meantime, when a symptoms persists, I surrender.
I know that resisting will only increase my anxiety and make me feel worse.
And so, I acknowledge what is happening without struggling or questioning why.
I know these symptoms are only present because I am on my way to being
benzo-free and fully recovered.
I accept any discomfort or other sensation as a necessary path to my recovery.
I know that when this process is complete – right on schedule – I will be well again.
With this knowing, I take control of my recovery by completely letting go.
I am able to exhale. I breathe deeply and relax into this moment.
I release all concerns about my symptoms,
trusting that like other benzo survivors before me,
I WILL recover. I cope well, today, and every day until then.
I am grateful for my healing. This too, shall pass.
