The thing about ibogaine
, is that you don't have to take it again to feel okay. Often one takes one dose and is done.. Cravings and withdrawal
are just gone..
The other drugs
mentioned all can remove withdrawal, as long as you take it over and over. None of them do anything for cravings or withdrawal if you stop taking them, EXCEPT ibogaine.. SWIM
will admit, using a small booster of 500 mgs or less as needed of the Total Alkaloid
extract during any minor post acute withdrawal can make it even better, as sometimes, especially when withdrawing from long acting opiates
, like methadone
, or the worst buprenorphine
, one can get some minor withdrawal that shows up after several days due to their long half life and duration.
Nothing compared to what withdrawal feels like normally, but the occasional sneezing or sniffle, goosebumps, maybe only a few hours of sleep a night. But SWIM never felt despair, never wanted to use, even with morphine
sitting next to him the whole time. He was clean for 5 years after one dose, until he broke his collar bone badly and was put on pain meds until he developed another habit.
He used iboga
again, and again, piece of cake. Sure it did take a week or two before he started getting energy and motivation, but he didn't have much of either on opiates anyways. And it was easy, but there were days he didn't feel like doing anything, etc..
For anyone serious about being done taking something addictive, iboga was the easiest way he ever tried. He was on methadone for 3.5 years, on oxy and heroin
for 3.5 years then on vicodin and morphine for ten months after his injury, and he is clean now. He can even take opiates now, although he doesn't have the desire. He took them here and there on occasion during his 5 years of not being addicted, and it had lost it's appeal. He actually only used them maybe once or twice to get high in those 5 years off, and a couple times for broken bones, with no worry of addiction
creeping back up on him. The only reason he even got addicted again was for a snapped collar bone, where there was constant pain for months.
Now it's not a miracle, you don't take it and then the next day you feel like a million bucks. As stated, one may feel tired, have very minor post acute withdrawal, but the main thing is the urge to use and the cravings weren't there, which made those minor things, like goosebumps, more than bearable.. It just made him even further resolved to be finished with addiction.
As a side effect
he quit sweets, quit cigarettes, and sodas, and started eating healthier. He didn't even plan on those things.. Now he does iboga once in awhile for the remarkable healing and psychedelic
effects, but addictions are easy to break with iboga. it helps one unlearn any behaviors that cause them problems, if that's what they're really trying to do.
