If you alternate between two different benzo's for a period of time could you still become addicted?

In brief: Benzo = benzo

Benzo is benzo and so alternating between different benzo should not lessen the addiction, if you have a tendency for so.
There is a physical dependence--that is you will go through a withdrawal if stopped abruptly. For benzo, abrupt stopping is dangerous and so should be weaned. Consult doc. Good luck.
