Kansas City Road Trip: Benzo Mornings, Isolation, Gratitude, and More

Updated: Mar 23, 2023

We’re taking our podcast on the road. In a short road trip to Kansas City, your host shares his personal experiences traveling with protracted withdrawal symptoms and a few tips about managing symptoms while outside of our comfort zone.

Today’s episode is our very first Benzo Free Road Trip. Although it was cut short mid-trip, we still have plenty of content to share on topics such as isolation, gratitude, connections, loneliness, and a whole section on managing the darkness of benzo mornings.
