Most likely not: I hope this has been done under a doctors supervision. Tapers can always be slow going. However, it does seem to have gone smoothly for you. Great! There may be rebound anxiety after you stop all the clonazepam but most likely you'll have little to no withdrawal now.

You'll do great: This is a very difficult drug to get off of but you've done it! Its your nervousness that likely got you started on it in the first place so you still need to deal with that. If used for years meds like this can leave you with a residual anxiety level that is worse than before so you are headed in the right direction. Your dose has been low enough and duration short enough that you'll be fine
