Benzodiazepines, a class of tranquilizers and sleeping pills (including Valium, Xanax, and Ambien) that are often mindlessly and irresponsibly prescribed by doctors who have been sold on their merits by crooked drug companies, do more than enslave your body: ultimately, they can crush your soul. This book is not only a first hand, partial insider account, written as the memoir of a personal journey; it is published in the off chance that it might increase public awareness of the dangers of Benzodiazepine dependency, and to influence public policy and law in regard to Benzodiazepines and similar drugs. Though an occasional Michael Jackson or Whitney Houston overdose tragedy may focus attention on this subject for a few days, negligent doctors around the world continue to create dependent patients; instead of healing you, a doctor may have enslaved you to a drug such as a Benzodiazepine, which can be surprisingly difficult to free yourself from. And what if your doctor, who addicted you to a chemical without a conscience, was paid and bribed by drug companies to do it? What if he/she prescribed it without giving you all the necessary cautionary warnings, and if as a result you are hooked for life? What ethical questions does this raise? This book is both a call for justice on behalf of millions, as well as a personal, literary expression—by an author of 12 books who has been published in ten countries—and record of suffering caused by a chemical, and the record of a journey that still incomplete; it is NOT a how-to book, and is not meant to be a substitute for your own research and professional advice (with caution and skepticism: “professionals” caused this problem in the first place).
Finally in paperback: a unique book, BENZO LAND (which has so far been published only digitally).
"The drug has masked our true identity, and made us lose touch with it; people then mistake us and judge us for this false self rather than the true self that has somehow been forgotten in all this confusion. Which is why I sometimes tell people: if you want to know who I really am, read my writings — all of them, or a fair chunk of them. They will tell you much more about me than I can, speaking about myself in the present. Because my writings come from a deeper place within me: there is more time to reflect on them, to edit them, and to confirm their truth to oneself."—Benzo Land: How Doctors and Drug Companies Enslave Us
