Yes it sure is. Depending on what your dosage normally is in a day, do one less for about 10 days. Then one less for another 10 days and so on and so on. This is just an example. I'm sure you can find a tapering schedule on the forums on this site. Just remember that you have people in the same situation as you are and are here to help. Continue to post if you need advice or have any questions or even just to talk to someone. That's what everyone is here for. Good luck bud.
Pridewar and eyes are both correct. As a matter of fact, many people who post here have done it this way. Including me. However things have changed since I quit. And as eyes' said, depending on what you're trying to taper from, will determine in you can break up the pills to lower doses even more. Let us know if we can help.
