[Ibogaine] implications for the long-lasting actions of the anti-addictio...

I know someone on my drugwar list who is taking some incredibly huge amount 
of methadone every day, prescribed, not bought off the street- I can't 
remember if it's 300-something, or 600 something, but it's huge. I've seen 
his script. I know he's not making this up.
When I wrote my "M is for Methadone" article, I compared such huge dosages 
to Nazi experimentations, but now, knowing he's happy and productive at such 
levels, I no longer feel that way.
I honestly believe that not everyone is supposed to not be using- and under 
our current system, sometimes the only safe way to continue "using" 
opiate-like substances is to take methadone, so more power to them.
I also believe that something like ibogaine should be available to those who 
decide they want off or out from under the addictive effects of opiates.
But I think I'm merely stating the ultra-obvious with this email.
"America is not so much a nightmare as a non-dream.
The American non-dream is precisely a move to wipe
the dream out of existence.
The dream is a spontaneous happening and
therefore dangerous to a control system set up by
the non-dreamers."
William S. Burroughs

Shannon, I got my done from a doc too and I never got over 80 mgs. that he 
knows of. Now that doesn't mean I didn't have a connection and would do 200 
sometimes, 'cause I did. Hell, when I was on the clinic in the late 80's and 
early 90's I was doing 300 mgs. sometimes. I got detoxed in about a month 
when I was on the clinic. It wasn't my idea believe me, and I couldn't sleep 
right for a very long time unless I was drunk and then I just passed out. It 
was hell. I was back on 'done for about 2 years while I was doing Interferon 
for Hep C when I found out about Ibogaine, then I had to wait about another 
9 months before I could set up treatment. The difference between the two 
detoxes was like night and day. After I detoxed with Ibogaine I could sleep 
in about 10 days. Not great but I could sleep, it just didn't seem like I 
needed as much. I was able to drive myself to Manhattan and meet a lot of 
the people I had become internet friends with in two weeks. (Prestons first 
book release party was a blast) I guess what I'm trying to say in such a 
round about way is that Ibogaine made it much easier to deal with. As far as 
your friends go I'm sorry that they went out like that. It doesn't have to 
happen that way though. Get a therapist, exorcize, stay on the list, go to 
meetings, (did I say that?) and keep a support system around you and the 
chances are real good that you can deal with what comes up. If you 
fall.........get back up and have at it again. You seem like a strong 
person, you can do this. My docs all told me that getting off of methadone 
was almost impossible and that if I needed to come back for my scripts I 
could. It was two years Sept. the 28th and I aint been back fir 'em yet. 
I've screwed up some with alcohol and acted like an idiot but I stay in the 
fuckin' game. YEEEEEEEEEE HAAAAAAAAAAA Can I get a witness!!!!!!!!!!! sorry 
I had to do that.     Peace  Love  and  blues riffs        Randy
