"Tripper's paranoia" is a natural occurence wherein one who is
tripping has a paranoid thought that, due to the accelerated mental
activity occuring during a trip, tends to consume the tripper in a
manner that can make the tripper very paranoid and stressed.
To cope with this, one needs to remind
themselves that they are tripping and that their paranoia is the
consequence of irrationality caused by being under the influence of a
mind-altering substance. Just repeat to yourself "everyhting is fine. I
am fine" over and over again. Put on some soothing music. Take deep
breaths. Lay back, relax.
If there is a sober person or a person with
more experience, talk to them. They can be your grounding rod back to
reality and to a good trip.
Remember, mushrooms won't kill you, and in a few hours life will be normal once more. Have fun!
Mushrooms are illegal in many places. If you
partake in an illegal activity, you may be prone to feelings of
paranoia. Make sure you understand the legalities of mushrooms where you live.
People usually feel paranoia for a reason. Paranoia is often an irrational reaction to a rational fear.
Paranoia also, springs forth when a person
fights the flow of a trip, and tries to cling to reality. Don't. You
should know, and accept this fact going in: a trip is a trip from
reality. Why trip, if you won't allow yourself to go with the trip?
