benzos - brain damage?

OK. So we know that benzodiazepines act on the neurotransmitter GABA, soaking the neurons in it's pleasure. We know that alcohol does the same exact thing. We also know that too much alcohol consumption can lead to brain damage via loss of brain cells. Can this happen due to prolonged use of benzodiazepines, too? I mean, if the benzos do the same thing as alcohol... ?

I feel like I'm getting stupider as time goes on. I keep forgetting things. I totally made a big mess up with school and now owe them a bunch of tuition money that I thought had already been paid by my financial aid. I've been doing poorly at work, and I really just feel like I'm in the dark about what is going on everywhere, all the time. :( I'm getting very depressed again.
