so ive never tripped alone before. ive done shrooms about twice before, and acid twice as well, and this has been over a period of a year.
i just read some do's and donts of shrooms, and it said dont take them alone. i want a trip that can help me really sort my head out and get an introspective look at myself. i figure ill do about 2 grams dried, since i think 3 grams would be a little too intense.
so do you think im ok to do this alone if i have had a little experience with hallucinogens before?
also, ill be walking around the arboretum. it might be a little cold since its fall, and its supposed to rain in the afternoon, but im thinking about eating them at 10 am.
anyone ever trip and had it rain? is it easy to deal with it or does your trip turn on you easier? i do have a poncho if worse comes to worse
yep Ive done shrooms alone and doses ... Not a problem when you have a plan ... Just enjoy yourself . all is good
I wouldn't advise it especially if your trying to work some issues out. I've tripped several times and still haven't crossed that border of doing it alone yet. I just think it's important to have at least another person that can act like a grounding totem and kind of bring you back to earth if you start getting a little out of your head. That way you won't feel like your the only person that feels the way you do. Instead you have a friend that can be like, "hey man your not crazy, I'm here with you!" or "Don't worry, you'll be alright let's focus on this instead..."
I can definitely see why people can and will commit suicide while on hallucinogenics because they can take you to frightening places sometimes. So frightening that you can't distinguish what is real and what is in you head.
But if you're heart is still set on it, start out smaller than normal. Technically 1.5-1.7g is an effective dose for a person 150-220 lbs. I can totally sympathize with you wanting to do it by yourself. I've often thought about it as an educational experience like you were describing, but I'd like to a get a few more trips under my belt before I go there.
Just my 2 cents.
oh your going to be in public? I would definitely say fuck that then. The feelings you get in public when your the only one high are always mixed in my opinion. It can turn out good or bad depending on the kind of person you are and situation. Just don't be that guy that starts drawing attention to yourself because you don't realize you're acting strange.
I have tripped alone. I also know exactly how my body acts to mushrooms.
Tripping alone isn't for everyone. If you are social, the isolation will disturb you.
hmmm.... i am having second thoughts about this now. cause in previous times, i have needed someone to keep an eye on me. for instance, i fell on the ground laughing hysterically last time i took about 3 grams in a public place.
i dont think im ready for it alone yet now that you guys mention it.
however, my one room mate did insinuate that he wanted to trip tomorrow. i was goign to tell him id rather do it alone, but i think just having another person there can make the world of difference. only thing is, he did his first 1/4 hit of acid (just to have fun) last week, and he seemed slightly annoying at times, singing show tunes etc.
i might just bring an ipod and just talk to him when i feel like i might be losing it.
has your friend ever tripped shrooms before or would this be his first time. if it would be his first time then you would kinda be the overseeier making your ipod pretty useless. if he sings when trippin then public might not be the best location. i have tripped alone before, my favorite way when by myself, cuz it usually gets too intense for me, is to have a few drinks and experience the like first 2 hours (the come up and the peak) then i usually pass out. idk, if im with other ppl i can handle the whole trip but when alone i tend to get aggrevated at the fact that it takes so long to come down. after too long when im by myself i tend to get a little sea sick too. also the drinks help if you get yourself into a bad trip. then i can just lay down and pretty quickly i will pass out and then the dreams are usually pretty good. oh but if your drinking and shroomin at the same time you really need to have a good hold on how your body works and how you act, make sure you can fully control yourself or you could get yourself into a pretty bad situation. like alcohol poisoning.
well i hope that i provided you with at least something you can use, if you decide to trip, have a good time and enjoy yourself.
tripping alone is the way to go in my opinion... it is a personal journey that everyone takes differently... some cant/dont even take it, they just laugh and look at the "pretty colors".... i'm all for that, but in its time...
neway; if you are gonna trip by yourself, like everyone else says, public is a bad idea... i would go somewhere in nature where you can be in total solitude.. cause the last people you want to see when you are trippin real good is a sober person... do have a backup plan though; like stay near the house (backyard even) so you can go talk to someone level if need be... or even something as simple as programing your persons number to speed dial in your cell phone so you can contact them if you need to get grounded (cause we know working contraptions like that can be complicated at best).
overall, just remember to tell yourself everytime you start to panic a little that it is just a drug, and unlike acid, you cant trip forever... or o.d. for that matter
used to do alot of shrooming back in the day... closest i ever came to freaking out, i ate somewhere in the vicinity of 50-65 fresh caps of assorted sizes... got out of my head for awhile.. somehow ended up face down on the carpet, convinced i was paralyzed, visuals overtook my eyesight and couldnt see, and i was convinced that i had "really fucked up this time" and would never be sane again... but then i started to accept it and i became what i suppose an utter lunatic to be... this went on for about two (real) hours and the peak started to whine down and things got back to normal.. fun times; but seriously, enjoy your temporary insanity, it will go away... then its back to the permanent insanity of reality...
Go grow pot
