i don't know. i have felt loopy and a bit uninhibited if i take too much klonopin, but it's nothing euphoric. i was with friends a couple days ago and they were snorting xanax and i just couldn't understand why. i think when people abuse benzos, it's mostly always as an addon to another drug. alcohol, weed, heroin, etc. and like Ian said also used to come down from drugs. I know my brother who is a meth addict uses ativan when he comes down.
