It works very well. But I am afraid that I'll be addicted to it. Is there a danger for using it forever?

I dont know if I can really answer your question about it being dangerous to take forever, but I wanted to comment, because you are in the same boat I am in. I am having insomnia and bad restless legs at night! Toss and turn and want to crawl out of my skin. Have tried different things but Clonazepam seems to work the best. Ambien and other drugs just make me SO tired and groggy the next day. I take 0.5 mg as well not EVERY night, but many nights. Actually my OWN DR. would not prescribe it to me because she said it is addictive, so I went elsewhere.

You can become physiologically dependent on the drug. But, your dose is so low. I wouldn't worry. Be happy it works. I take 2mg of the drug twice daily and at that dose I would have to be slowly taken off -so no withdrawal effects.
Using forever-if you stay at such a small dose I wouldn't worry about that either. But, if you notice you needing more to help you sleep-talk to your doctor. It's not good for me to take as much as I do, but for my case the pros outweigh the cons.
I hope I helped!
