Who successfully came off a benzo after being on it for say atleast 3 years. I've been on Clonazepam for about that length of time and am thinking of trying to come off of it. How did you do it? What was your experience like?

Is there any medical reason why alcohol would not work to prevent withdrawal and seizures, other then dehydration (which could be prevented with something like Gatorade and staying out of the heat)?
Afaik alcohol causes considerably more impairment than benzodiazpines for the desired effects, it's also emetic and causes liver damage. Considering it's very short half life I don't see how you could use it to prevent withdrawl.
