Shroomery affecting my social life
    #1810817 - 08/13/03 08:31 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I notice that whenever I'm hanging out with my friends, I always bring up the Shroomery, and I can tell it's starting to get on their nerves. It seems like this message board is all I ever have to talk about. Anyone experiencing the same thing?

Yeah dude, don't tell outsiders about the Shroomery.

Read dumb sites like Fark.com, and when you want to talk about something on shroomery, be like "oh yeah I saw this thing on fark, it was a picture of a squirrel with giant nuts" or whatever.

That used to happen to me before The Shroomery completely took over my life and I stopped hanging out with "real" people.

I think this is why many of us are here; because it seems hard to discuss various topics with our groups of "friends." Many of these topics are vented here as a result, IMO

that's not to say that I don't attempt to discuss things that I find out here on the internet with my "associates." There are way more people out here on the net to exchange ideas with than there are at even the coolest gatherings so I can't help but find more interesting stuff to talk about out here than from my "real world" heh


--------------------
Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Yeah, no shit. While I have plenty of friends to smoke, drink and even trip with, I feel like I'm the only one with a real strong interest in the details of drugs. (All the different kinds, pharmacology, etc.) I only give away so much of my drug knowledge in conversation. Especially where I live, sounding too knowldegable on the subject with people other than my buddies can lead to red flags being thrown up all over the place. Even with my friends, getting too indepth would be weird. Anyway, I've never told anybody I post here, although I spend a lot of late nights going through the different forums.

you make it sounds like the shroomery is a bad drug! lol... you may have your fiending qualities for this fine establishment. But like ^^^ said i dont think its to be too worried about. Maybe after all you are here because you find exactly what you want. My friends like this place, and they are just like "meh, you are always on there". Let your friends come to accept you... as long as your accepting the truth of your use, than i think you should be okay. See look at my friends... they were originally going to put a laptop in my hands, but my friend couldnt draw so he erased it... and i realized that i had spent too much time on the computer before... but its all gravey... you just have to know when to walk away :wink: :smile:.

LoLz! This is an interesting question, and it may seem funny for me to say, or maybe not, that I have often contemplated my time on the internet and at the shroomery in terms of addiction. This business of "friends" is interesting because one thing that I remember from being a heroin addict, is that you eventually only hang out with other heroin users, because regular people just don't understand, and they don't want to spend all day with you trying to raise cash, score, and shooting up in the bathroom. :wink:

This does seem roughly parallel with my shroomery experience. People that don't spend a lot of time on-line, and here specifically, don't get it, and don't care to talk about it, so I tend to spend more time here. Of course, it doesn't help that I live way out in the woods, and it's an effort to get to people -- and getting here is easier... :wink:

I think Shroomery/Internet addiction can be a real problem for some. I know I have wondered about this quite a bit with myself. There is much that is wonderful about this place, and you people, though, so it's not all bad. :smile:

YES! LOL, i think the only time i refrained from speaking(highly) of the shroomery in social settings was the period from early june to early august when i wasn't around, mind you i didn't see anyone socially during that period either, so who knows? :smile:

No, the guys at the FBI and The Justice Department just wouldn't understand...

But seriously, maybe you should just walk away from it for awhile. It might be a good thing for you to take a break.

I hang out here because I like drugs and I like the people here (except OTD, it amazes me that it hasn't been killed yet).

If I told some of my friends how much I love drugs, I'd get weird looks. I can say it here. I'm accepted for what I am: a young man interested in discovering his inner-self by way of psychedelics.

A large portion of the shroomery members also fit into that same category.

It's getting on their nerves man, because they can't relate like everyone here does. That's what makes this place what it is.

I know exactly what you mean. I'm on a constant search for new drug-loving friends but they're few and far between. You'd think living in south Florida that would be easy, but it's not...

I dont say shit. My friends arent into mushrooms AT ALL they think they make your brain bleed. They are all jocks, and some flunked outa skewl. But they know how to have fun, get pussy, and ive known most of them since grade school. Right when I talk about somthing more than surface level they get confused instantly, but I like them for who they are so its kewl =D
