I was reluctant to try shrooms at first, so I took about a third of what my friend offered me. Shortly thereafter I met a f-buddy for drinks and fun in the hay. Usually this guy is a bit self centered, and I sometimes have to work at staying interested in his converstation. But this time - wow, he was fascinating. I found myself very concerned, focused and interested in his issues. Later, we had mind blowing fun because everything seemed so sensual, intense, drawn out and deep. Nothing could be wrong, and the memories of it have lasted over a year. I saved the rest that my friend gave me for another time. Again, when I did about 1/3 of a dose, the result was that I was in a great mood, very concerned for my fellow humans, deeply interested in what they had to say and just good ole happy. For the first timer, or someone who just wants to take a little, I would recommend a small dose to have a great day!
