A tad nervous about tripping
    #1458504 - 04/14/03 11:06 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hello. This really is a serious post. A few months ago I tried salvia divinorum for the first time, and that was my first trip. It was crazy losing grip on reality, but salvia overall is not a desirable experience to me at all, namely because it agitates me and I lost control of myself which I do not like. Anyway, I'm tripping for the first time this weekend with my own home grown. Should I be nervous about having an unpleasant experience like on salvia or are shrooms much better?

Shrooms will be much nicer to ya, especially if you grew them yourself. Don't worry, if you eat under 5g dried, you shouldn't lose control like on salvia, have a blast  :wink:

Can't compare the two...mushrooms in my opinion are much more user -friendly when used in normal dosages than salvia. Salvinorin A contained in salvia is I believe the most powerful naturally occurring hallucinogen currently known...the problem you might encounter with mushrooms would be your own nervousness and anxiety about the experience. Read the FAQs and do a little searching ...check the trip reports at Erowid, read the postings here at the Shroomery, don't let your anxiety take you to a bad place. Use the search function and check on recommended dosages and trip levels...

Thanks a lot for the help guys. I really don't think my own nervousness or anxiety will ruin the trip... I've read all about it in "The Psychadelic Experience" by Tim Leary and am confident I can handle it. I was just hoping someone with salvia experience could compare it to shrooms for me.

Salvia makes everything you see basically become alien, you lose your sense of self, and yes you feel agitated and weird afterwards. I don't especially like it either. Mushrooms, although distorting your perception of what you thought was real, still keep you fairly grounded in your surroundings (assuming you haven't munched too many). You'll still know who and where you are, but everything will do crazy stuff like change color and detailed surfaces will move as if they are organic. The comedown is fairly sudden, but nowhere near as harsh as Salvia. You will feel fairly good, although sleep may be difficult for a while.

Those are the fundamental differences as I see them. Hope that helps..

Confidence and mindset are all you need when it comes to a shroom trip.  Enjoy yourself and learn what the mushroom teaches you :smile:  Try to get something positive out of the trip.  Respect the mushroom. :smile:

Make sure you have some of your favorite music around. If you start feeling bad, put on something that always makes you feel good and give it a nice, long listen. I've never had a bad trip using this simple safety net.

Yea the music thing usually works. Although for me...I don't really like my favourite music when I'm trippin, I usually prefer more mellow nature type mystical music.

I have listened to some of my favourite music baked or sober on mushrooms and thought it was utterly disgusting (I broke the CD that I had  :crazy:.)

Just lettin you know

dude, listen to music that you like or that you have good memories of while listening to that music and its hard to go wrong. I've had music control a lot of my trips, its weird.

Yeah.. even if you don't like this band, i think phish (maybe the song bliss or Brian and Robert) will put you at ease if things get rough.. give them a listen!  Very peacefull music :smile:

I hear you man.... I haven't heard that song but I have A Live One and it's blissful. It's such feelgood music and they can jam ungodly well for so fuckin long.

the best way to look at tripping... you don't really have to "do" anything, other than exist, which you are doing right now.  Just grind the shrooms up with some OJ, chug, and exist for the next six hours or so, thats all ya have to do :smile:

Sounds like you just had a bad impression of the whole experience with that first time. Stick with whats established. That being said, go into it with a positive outlook and no fair, and have a blast :laugh: If you still have reservations, have a trip sitter nearby.

keep your mnind straight

if you ever feel any anxiety or anything...THINK TO YOURSELF "IM JUST TRIPPING" "THIS WILL BE GONE IN A FEW HOURS" "I CANNOT BE PHYSICALLY HURT BY SHROOMS" "ENJOY IT"


you might also feel like you know everything and that your current mental state will remain forever...but dont worry....you always return baseline the next morning after a nice long sleep

have fun
