<p dir="ltr">Thanks. I read more about the cravings and it reminded me of this drug court class I had to take 12 years ago after getting busted for growing marijuana (I was not addicted yet) Anyways a lot of the people were there for more serious drugs, </p>

<p dir="ltr"> I was the only one there for pot, and they would make us watch videos of people cooking and.shooting up dope. Talk about a trigger, no wonder at the end of the 3 month class only 6 out of 30 people graduated. I hope they got a new video.<br>

Lotsof Love, Val</p>

<p>Will the body and brain ever get back to the point of homeostasis after a decade of drug use? <br>
Since I have decided I was going to do ibogaine I have already changed certain things in my life I never would have before, I feel like I am already starting to heal in a spiritual way.<br>
Now I would like my body to follow along once I do my treatment, I am really starting to wonder how I'm going to feel after treatment.<br>
Am I going to freak out because I don't even remember what it feels like to have no types of opiots in my body?<br>
I would like to think my body and mind will be so greatful I did this for myself.<br>
And I can finally have a real life, maybe even start a family. <br>
How long am I going to feel like crap after my treatment? I'm sure it depends on my after care , I feel like I have a pretty good plan.</p>
