Our 100th Episode! — Success Stories, Sincerity, and Some Fun (edited)

Updated: Mar 12, 2023

CONGRATULATIONS! We made it! Episode 100! Thank you all for getting us here. Pour the champagne (non-alcoholic of course), gather around, reminisce a bit, and let’s celebrate. And how do we do that? Well, with stories of success, of course.

In today’s episode, we share several positive stories from individuals who have struggled with BIND (benzo withdrawal) and who have found success. We also look back at our past 99 episodes, share a new research publication, and provide a few updates about the podcast and website. Please join us for a bit of nostalgia, a bit of sincerity, and a bit of fun.

NOTE: This episode was previously published. It has since been taken offline, edited, and re-posted.
