Ibogaine – An Actual Miracle Drug?

I came across Ibogaine reading advice for someone who was trying to give up a 15 year Heroin habit. I must confess, I had never heard of Ibogaine before, not on the old Rorta forums or anywhere else and when I heard it could cure Heroin addiction in one treatment I was sure it was a complete scam or a drug manufactured abroad by a questionable Chinese pharmaceutical firm.

Perhaps I should be less cynical.

Ibogaine is a naturally occurring psychoactive drug with psychedelic properties that can be found in several plants. It’s also a tryptamine similar to drugs like AMT but its tripping potential isn’t what interests me. What interests me is its reputation as a drug that can cure addictions. People have reported its success in treating Opiate, Alcohol, Stimulant and cigarette addictions.

Ibogaine seems to achieve this by encouraging introspective thoughts where people look at their what led to their addictions in the first place as well as alleviating the symptoms of Opiate withdrawal, which as any Opiate user will tell you is fucking awful and is one of the biggest reasons why quitting Opiates is so tough.

Of course it’s not a commonly found drug on the black market and has a dubious legal status in many countries meaning that independent research is difficult to achieve.

There are a lot of trip reports and detailed encounters with Ibogaine, such as the links below. I’ll be publishing any new information I hear about in further articles.

iStick Mini – A Review

I talked about giving up smoking in a previous blog post and since then it’s been a battle, it really has. I decided to go balls to the wall and actually invest in a proper eCig. I spent a lot of time on Reddit’s various eCig/Vape sub-Reddits as well as a lot of forums and YouTube channels trying to figure out what my first move would be.

Spend Money/Gain Weight. Save Money/Lose Weight.

It started a few years ago. Physically I was in the best shape of my life. A year or so of eating right and hitting the gym had paid off. Mentally I was in the worst shape of my life. For all intents and purposes, aside from my investments I was broke. I had lost four members of my family and my long term relationship had ended. I was abusing Weed, Coke and MDMA regularly.

As me and a friend began working 14 hour days forging a business, I let myself fall into a bad way physically. I stopped working out. I stopped running. I stopped taking care of my body. The more money I made the more I spent on food. I would get a takeaway most nights and go out for dinner to a restaurant once or twice a week. In the daytime I would eat and drink garbage. In a year I gained three stone, and lost thousands of pounds in doing so. I estimate some weeks I may well have spent £100 on food and drinks, excluding alcohol. This may seem like a relatively small amount but many people my age struggle don’t have that after working a week once their rent is paid.

I tried various diets and briefly documented my Steak and Eggs diet and although I lost weight it wasn’t good enough. In February I decided to bring my cost of food down to an absolute minimum – £15 a week and do the same with my daily Caloric intake, which I bought down to 1600 calories per day.

Three months later I have saved a fair amount of money and I’m now at a lower BF% than I was before I got myself into this mess. My face isn’t as chiselled as it once was and I don’t have anywhere near the muscle mass I used to have, but we will get there. Once I’m happy – The goal is ten stone and I’m at 11 now – we’ll move onto the next challenge: How to save money and gain mass.

The Battle to Quit Smoking

Smoking is one of those things which has really no positives whatsoever, and instead a shitload of potentially massively life affecting negatives. There is really no reason to smoke anymore. Anyone telling you too smoke in this day in age is a complete moron. There are no excuses. We have known for a considerable time that smoking causes a multitude of cancers, increases the risk of heart disease and strokes and is a leading cause of respiratory diseases.
