Saying Hello!
« on: January 19, 2010, 03:13:06 PM »
Hello everyone, I am new here, but Calaquendi is a friend, and I have a bit of experience with iboga.  I kicked a heroin/oxy to methadone habit in 04 with iboga, but broke my collar bone and am now healed as well as I can be, and fighting an addiction to pods.  I will be doing iboga again, soon, and will pop in here as often as possible to help out, and share my experiences.  Hello Eboka Forum!

It has been quite a while since Dad signed up and started favoring us with his knowledge and compassion.  Today, on the vox ibogaine list, there appeared an unsolicited testimonial to the kind of guy he is.  To me, the fact that it was made by Jeremy Spence is a testimonial in and of itself.

Glad you're here, Dad!  ~eon

PS  --  Helpful Hopeful is Dad's screen name on the ibogaine list.

From Jeremy Spence:

I will say,

helpful hopeful, is a the "real deal"

When it comes to "trying" to help people.

A truly rare find in this world of complete and utter madness....

I would love to see the day, when pain patients and addicts alike are not treated like "piles of total shit" in America, the land of the "free???"

I don't wish to see, total destruction of society by meds/drugs/alcohol

I don't wish to see that..

but, people will always do as they wish to do...

However, I do not believe in policing people meds/drugs/ what alcohol drinks they like, ect, ect...

Jeremy


My reply to Jeremy:

Jeremy,

I totally agree with you.  HH has a heart as big as Alaska!  (Before 2000, I would have said "big as Texas" instead, but I just don't use 'Texas' to convey complements anymore.)  (My apologies to all you Texans in the audience!)  (... and my sympathy.)

I think HH would make a fine Harm Reduction poster-boy, don't you?

Thanks a bunch to all of you.  I am nothing special, really.  Just a guy into iboga, and having fun sharing with you all!  Thanks so much for the kind replies and for making me feel loved!  You all rock!!  :D

Welcome, Rise! Alcohol was my issue, and I did great with the TA. We're here for you, and we all learn from each other. Keep us posted, here we go!
