Thanks for bringing your question to JustAnswer.
If you have only been taking the diazepam for two days, it should not be hard to titrate off.
At your next dose, take only 20mg. for one day.
If you don't experience any problems, cut the dose in half (10 mg) the next day. If the anxiety is uncomfortable, stay at this dose one more day.
Then go down to 5 mg the next day.
Once you are down to 5mg for one day, you should be able to successfully stop taking it the next day.
Diazepam can be habit-forming, but with only two days of use, you most likely will not notice any side-effects.
If your anxiety returns, and you wish to deal with it without Diazepam, look into learning relaxation techniques and/or meditation.
There are also some amino acids, such as GABA, that seem to calm anxious feelings. But please be sure to check with your doctor before trying it.
