The fact is that it is extremely addictive… it becomes difficult to sleep after 4-5 days of treatment if you don’t take another dose of Xanax. The longer you take it the stronger the addiction will be. That’s why the withdrawal of the drug should be carried out gradually reducing the dose every three days.
‘I Saw A Man’ was published by Faber in June 2015. He is Professor in Creativity at Swansea University. A stage version of Owen’s verse drama Pink Mist premiered at Bristol Old Vic in July 2015. A live recording of Owen performing Pink Mist can be downloaded here.
