Thanks very much Nick (and everyone else too) for relating your experiences.

What you just said in that paragraph there makes me feel a lot better
about the idea of doing iboga.

While my experience ON acid was extremely horrific, it was really the
AFTEReffects that were so problematic. The panic attacks, the fear of
being insane, the fear that at any moment the world around me could
crumble into hell. These persisted for years after my bad trips.

I think I could deal with a grueling psychedelic experience if the fear
and and mental anguish doesn't persist on and on after the trip. From what
you've said, it sounds like this isn't likely to happen with iboga...
