Shrooming with my Dad
    #1471940 - 04/19/03 12:55 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

What do you guys think? I'd really like to do it but can his 55-year-old, responsibility-having mind handle it?

Hahahahahahahahahahahaha. ...haha...ha...  :laugh:  :grin:

Can't help but laugh at the various perspectives on "old" folks' minds....responsibility is just something that happens to us all out of necessity, doesn't mean their minds are old or wouldn't enjoy stimulation.....

See MJShroomer's recent reply to a post, where he listed the various ages of the psychedelic pioneers, all over 50.    HERE

I would think that other considerations would be more important, like your father's  attitude toward such things, and his view of your involvement with them......

We talk about shrooms sometimes. My brother and I have tried to get him to smoke weed on numerous occasions but he always says something like "I can't smoke that devil weed with the roots in Hell!" and we all crack up.

What could I tell him to make him want to go for it?

EDIT: Go for the shrooms I mean.

Tell him why someone would take psychedelics. Also, that they are almost sacred and are to be respected for what they can give you. A good quality psychedelic experience would be a really good thing for someone older. It could help him apreciate life more.

Damn dude... it sounds like you're trying to force him into eating them. Just casually ask if he wants to try them, and if not, more for you.

as i have stated elsewhere, dr albert hoffman thinks that psychedelics are best utilized by folks middle-aged & older... & NOT for teens & young adults (whose worlds are filled with enough changes as it is, hehheh...)

MMerletto- It's more like I think he would benefit from them, but I don't know how to explain that to him and not sound like a BSer.

Aldous Huxley's "Doors of Perception" and "Heaven and Hell" are fairly intelligent analyses of the psychedelic experience, and not extremely lengthy. If your father is into reading, maybe these works would be useful to give him some insight to help him draw his own conclusions whether or not he is interested in having a direct experience.

Yes, I have those books combined into one, but I haven't read it yet. Been meaning to, etc., etc. I really should read that....

I know for a fact my dad was a 'shroomer' when he was my age. I would love for nothing more than the chance to trip with him now! I think that if i had one last trip, i would want it to be experienced with him!

I can empathize. I have been trying to think of a way to tell my parents they should try some ecstasy. They're pretty cool, and I know they used to trip and get high when they were younger (before me - shut up!) -

Just let him read some glowing, life-affirming, naturous trip reports. You know the ones.

Heh, funny thing - doing AMT with your mother -- it being something not exactly widespread out there, it's one of the last things I'd expect someone to say they did with a parent - but hey, more power to you.!

What do you mean your Dad's a narc?
