Maybe it's just me?
    #1816582 - 08/15/03 12:14 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I find it odd that there are so many post about bad trips, and bad trip prevention. I've triped dozens of times and never had a bad trip. Some trips weren't as pleasant as others, but I've never been terrified, or even more than slightly uncomfortable. Is it just that lots of people are tripping in uncomfortable settings, or that all the negative hype about bad trips is causing a psychosomatic effect?

I suspect the rash of bad trips are a combination of factors, but almost always can be distilled down to a single point, which Swami pointed out once...

"I took a zillion grams and freaked out..."

Almost every single 'bad trip report' starts out with the above statement, which is usually a direct result from lack of education.

I think it's partially the nature of mushrooms. A lot of people are not prepared for the come-up and don't realize anguish is part of the mushroom experience and life as well.

I think it affects people differently.  Some people are just more susceptible due to there body chemistry.  I myself have tripped many many many times and don't only had a few bad trips. 
It's just like the guys who can smoke pot and feel relaxed, I can't... I go nuts.  Certain chemicals just don't play well with others but shroom chemicals play very well with me :smile: :smile:

now that you've posted "I've never had a bad trip," we will use our voodoo on you to infect your next experience.

Your next trip is going to spook you the fuggout, muahahaaaa!!!

It has to do with set, setting, preperation and state of mind. It says all of this on the Shroomery's readings from the main page. But just curious, what is the largest dose you have had? At high doses, it is probably more likely to have a bad trip. If you start thinking bad thoughts on mushrooms, that is when the mushrooms can tear you apart. I bet for most of your trips you didn't let your mind get carried away with bad thoughts.

Yeah I was joking. We all know there's no such thing as voodoo spells, and that you are completely unable to have a bad trip.

We all know that. You have nothing to worry about - your next trip should be just as fun as the last

I'm so excited and prepared for my first trip that I can't imagine it being a bad one.

Is it just that lots of people are tripping in uncomfortable settings, or that all the negative hype about bad trips is causing a psychosomatic effect?

There are untold variables, but many would like to deny body chemistry. As a young man, I fearlessly tripped untold times. Now I tremble at the thought of a small dose. Something has changed and the come-up freaks me out. I have a great sense of dread along with the "make-it-stop!" syndrome, even when set and setting are perfect. I do enjoy the come down when I play my music though, but it is almost not worth the torment.

I would not classify my symptoms as a "bad trip" as that is usually by definition, a high-dose freak-out; it is just that my body does not like the shroom any more.



--------------------



The proof is in the pudding.
