I have spent hours reading through old threads all over BL, l have a very specific question that l want an answer to. How long will the rebound insomnia last if l take no type of sleep aide. I am not on any maintenance drugs or l wouldn't be not sleeping. I want to just avoid putting any drugs into my body. How long will it take...it's the non sleep that drives me crazy. Has anyone went with no help? I have a script for benzos which l am currently out of, l don't want to fill it this month, just want my brain to get back to normal asap. I haven't had opiates since Friday, and benzos since Saturday. Handfuls of somas and benedryl and l have still only slept three hours the last couple nights. So l may as well keep that shit out of my body, l really want to get through this this time...it's just the insomnia that always breaks me down.
