For anyone interested in Ibogaine this is defenaitely for you. It comes from a radio program that I listen to regularly called "This American Life". In this episode, Sink or Swim, we hear stories of people who are in over their heads and trying to stay afloat.
In this act you will get to hear from a man, Dimitri, who is "praticing" this medicine at the local Holiday Inn and get to bear witness to a man in the middle of his trip through an Ibogaine dose. I found this very interesting. I've read a lot of what those here at Ophile have read and heard much of the same but to actually hear it like this was a real treat. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did. Enjoy!

I added the poll after posting this because I realized that for me it's a very difficult question to answer. I think if it were studied enough and developed to the point were it was relatively safe (what relative means I dont know since i dont truly know how dangerous it is) then yes I would. But I don't think I would look at it like a rest of my life type of thing. What it would be great for is getting clean quiclkly with the least amount of damage done and with the least amount of pain involved. I love opiates to much to even desire to do something that would make me NOT desire them. Let's say that Iboga made you unable to get high the rest of your life from an opiate. My answer would quickly be No I would never take such a drug. So once again even if this drug was marketed I don;t think I would be using it the way the doctors intended. I'd like to get some more discussion on this question and also on the audio you have heard or are going to hear. It's probably the most unknown subject to all of us here and anyone who says they know it that well is going to be a freak occurrance or a liar. One thing I found interesting was the mention towards the end of a licensed doctor in Cancun. I was not aware of the fact that they were actually licensed down there perform such a treatment. What that license actually take to get is one question but either way....Its some interesting shit for us to talk about as opposed to the normal BS (which I love) and OC, Heroin question and stories.
GOD DAMNIT!!! I just now realized that there is an Ibogaine forum.....can we please have this moved. Im sorry.
Please fo yourself and everyone here a favor and don't be the guy who is too cool for school....Just wanted to get that out there ahead of time.
