There are no Shortcuts to Redemption
« on: January 26, 2013, 05:42:07 PM »
Hello, So this is my personal experience with Ibogaine as an Addiction Interrupter for Methadone
In mid to late 2010 I was taking 130mg daily of Methadone a day via clinic.
I was in the midst of a hard break-up of a 3 year  relationship , due in large part to my
Methadone addiction , she had left town for the weekend so i could pack & get a plan
 I was depressed & feeling hopeless as a sat in the living room  of the house we had shared over the last close to 2 years, I put a BBC Documentary called "Detox or Die" by David Graham Scott (DGS) ~ > http://vimeo.com/25291673
as i watched this I became optimistic again about my situation with methadone, I could get off this shit for real if I was just given a window to escape, I could get my life back, MAYBE.

well I knew this wasn't living , I was ghost of my former self & i was existing  at best with all the worst side effects of Methadone limiting my quality existing. That MAYBE is all i needed.

So I set out looking for more info on the inter-web in late 2010 , I contacted DGS about his documentary &  he answered allot of questions for me.  as well as gave me the info to someone in the United States that was doing a form of Guerilla Ibogaine Treatment in the NY area. This person referred me to a provider in California but she was asking way more than what i could afford, as a passing note she hooked me up with a good fella in my State, Colo.....

Here Enters Harvey Plex in early 2011.....my real point of contact with the African Medicine  &  overall Game Planner . I had already started dropping down my Methadone dose from 1 to 2mgs a week to every 2 weeks depending on when i had to go to the clinic to get my poison. This process continued over the next 2 years more or less, slow yet stabilized enough to not lose my job or set in motion a possible relapse  back to Heroin or other Opiates.  Anyway HP & I spoke as often as we could, he always started our conversations within the first 5 minutes with "where is your Dose right now at? are you still dropping it ?"
 
well I am going to fast-forward up to November 30th 2012 ~

At this point i was down to 30mgs of methadone a day from 130mgs two years earlier with Ibo still my focus.
 I got laid off at my Wage Slave Job & was given an amount of money that could last me long enough to do Ibogaine & recoup from possible methadone PAWS.

Anyway I get my hands on the 10 grams of Ibogaine TA c/o a friend of ours & a Train Ticket back to Nebraska  to start finishing  up my detox  & to take the Medicine. I had somewhat talked to friend about "sitting" for me while HP & Lala were going to be on a sort of standby  to help if he had any questions once i started my Flood.  Well needless to say the Sitter & Space fell apart once i got to Neb & i still continued to at this point rapidly detox off of Methadone because my supply was limited yet I didn't know how to  safely take the Medicine alone , I got freaked out & started taking  large amounts of Xanax  & Valium thinking it would take the edge off (BAD IDEA, at least the amounts i was taking) Then after a week of mostly being in a Blackout , HP suggested that I try something else.

At this point I feel the need to say if you are considering doing what i did , avoid it & get a Sitter, please use great caution if you dont have much 1st hand experience with Iboga or Ibogaine !!!!

So the idea was purposed to Stack smaller doses over a week or two. (stacking) At this point I was totally out of Methadone, in full withdrawal & messed up on Benzo's   
so I waited about 18hrs from my last pill intake  & put on music
Youtube: 8sacredroot8  - the Bwiti section.
& lit one candle .


On the 1st night  - I took 1 Gram of TA
I completely Blanked out shortly after the medicine kicked in. I came to about 6 hrs later & jumped up out of bed...I fell back down but something wonderful & yet scary had happened The room I was in, the world I knew had completely changed. My Mental Computer had been reset off of 1 gram & I swear to this.  I have not craved or even thoughtfully considered going to a methadone clinic or scoring real opiates since that 1st one Dec 27th 2012 I saw how big of a self-centered prick i had been while Detoxing the week before , I saw how insignificant my addiction is in the grand design of my life & humanity on this planet as a whole. Yes I had a few intense hours of real soul searching, Crying  & laughing....Very emotional stuff. I was & am genuinely humbled by my experience.   

Night  2  -  i took a Half Gram of TA
very mild but I could feel the ibo working

Night  3 -  i  1 & a Half Grams of TA
mild but could feel it working

Night  4 - I took 2 Grams TA
still mild & very minimal

Night  5 - Took None

Night  6 - I took a half gram around 1pm & moved around on it all that day, That night I took
2 more Grams
- I believe I had a Threshold Flood Experience, Intense Psychedelic visuals for about 3 hrs but was still able to  slowly walk myself to the toilet in the 3rd hr

Night  7 - took Nothing

Night  8 - i took 1 gram
mild but still working on me

Night  9 - Nothing

Night 10 - \took 1 & a Half Grams
very mild but still felt the medicine working

That's the Bulk of it, I have done a couple Booster Doses since but those have been a half Gram or less & few & far between.
Again I owe a ton of Gratitude to Harvey Plex, Lalababa & Calaquendi for their Feedback, Support, Guidance, Sharing of knowledge & genuine friendship as well hours & upon hours of phone time I can not thank them enough.
I feel an extra need at this point to give HP  5 out of 5 Stars for a Job well done

 I feel it was a success. Is it to early to say so ? Maybe but my GUT tells me I will giving back sooner than later & you can't do that fully if you regress back to old behavior & thhe old force of habit.

I learned 1st hand & believe fully that You need a game plan Before, During & After you take Ibogaine as a way to Interrupt an Addiction of any sort. It is No Magic Bullet but it is African Jungle Magic in its purest form, You have to respect it.

that is all for now, I am sure i will need to edit this in time due to spelling & memory issues.

Love you to JT!  I am grateful that I was of some help to you, even if it was only speaking to you on the phone.  I have since met you in person and can truly say I fully believe that you are on the right track.  Have your PAWS been subsiding?  Are you feeling okay in general?  Still no cravings?
Monday...let's get together for some coffee.  I have a busy weekend.

Thank You for the report, I look forward to seeing more of you on here.
Much Love
lalababa

well I do love both of you too (really) & must give credit to The Bwiti Spirit or whatever for bringing both of you as well as Cal & everyone sitting around That table a week or so ago into my life.  I cant say how amazing life is right now. BlueTiger & your friend S***n

My PAWS or whatever have mostly subsided, if that's the right word for it. My body feels ok once i get up in the morning & start moving around ( i do have limited energy still ) & mind seems to be mostly back & i don't mean from the possible Ibo mental side-effects, I mean my Mind seems to have came back from where it was before I got on Methadone if not further back into my teens even. The HCF Brain Supplements Mr. Plex turned me onto maybe playing a part in my quicker serotonin recovery.  Over all i feel fkn GREAT !!!

& Yes Mrs. Lalababa, coffee Monday sounds wonderful, perhaps BT would be up for some as well?

This is really great to hear!  I would like to try some of that HCF, seems like you are recovering quicker than I and I switched to saos.  Very good to hear your head has also cleared.  S will be having his internet hooked back up soon and will be joining this community... I hope we can handle it ;)

Sounds like the TA was very weak, likely the vinegar extraction tech.  Glad it worked out eventually.  I've discovered an extract done with just Organic Grain Alcohol is about 2-3 times stronger than the vinegar extracts.  Denver the US capitol of both our secret government and now Iboga.

KP - hmmm.....yes it was vinegar extract ,I think 3.5 grams up to 4.5 all at once would of had me in full a "Flood" which due to circumstances (lack of physical Sitter & space to move around)  I was trying to avoid.
In the near future I plan on having my head fully Broken Open,
 
I am curious though KP, how much are you able to pull out of say 20 grams of average R.B. using Organic Grain Alcohol ?
I am still a total novice with this medicine & the Alchemy of it all.
I do trust my Irish Shamanic Mechanic though !!! ;)

You also mentioned Denver as the NWO Capitol & maybe The Future Ibo Capitol of the US, I dig it !!!
(at least the 2nd part)
but don't forget about Denver's new Marijuana Law, I do believe something is happening here & allot of it seems very Liberating. Only time will tell ;)

Lala ~ I look forward to seeing S here as well . . . . Yesss Monday, Coffee. i am looking forward to it !

Totally depends on the RB. 

I would trust him too, but if he hasn't done the other extract than it's a different department.  Anyways no matter who it is either a TPA (crude TPA using Ammonia per Grateful Dad's instructions) or Organic Grain Alcohol TA (they are on par somehow), with only 1.4 grams you should be in full vision.  I just saw based on your report that those types of results were not being reached with the stacked program.  And based on my own experience as I use to do the Vinegar extract and seeing over and over again that the Alcohol somehow or another produces a far more powerful extract.  Also from experience it is a more pure experience.  Also it's amazingly easier to scrape up as it doesn't stick to the pyrex like the vinegar (where you need to spray water on it over and over). 

Anyways it was just thought, you're in good hands and I certainly consulted that Iboga physician on a regular basis for some time.
