In brief: Yes

As a pathologist, i've seen this.
The benzodiazepines are quite safe and unlikely to kill alone even if abused, which unfortunately some people do. But add alcohol to the mix, and these people perish. I've found life too rich to want to live it with anything but a clear head, and confronting its inevitable difficulties -- and it's been rough -- without numbing myself. Peace and love.
