don't be scared, thats the key. Have a positive attitude going into it with a positive comfortable setting. but since your asking whether you should or not.. maybe its not the best idea for you.

good luck :smile:

Perhaps involve yourself with deep meditation, breathing practices, and yoga. Learn to focus your mind and find peace and let go :thumbup: Once you have a rudimentary understanding of how to access particular states and learn how to ease out of sticky situations, you should be well prepared for a psychedelic/entheogenic experience.

> how do i know if im ready?

Only you can answer that question.

> i  feel like im ready.

... and you did.  :smile:

> but how do i know wehn i can have a decent trip wihtout getting fucked up like all the people i know?

Depends on what you mean by 'fucked up'.  Long term, they ruined their lives, or short lived acting like a moron while tweaking on shrooms?

I cannot help with the first type of 'fucked up'.

For the second, I can offer some insight.  There are basically two types of people that eat shrooms (and a single person can be both).  The first type is out to have a good time.  Nothing wrong with this, though I feel that it is a waste of opportunity.  The second type is out to try and learn something about the world, or themselves.  If you are of the first type, then there is nothing you can do.  When you are having fun on shrooms, you are going to look and act 'fucked up'.  If you are of the second type, then being 'fucked up' doesn't matter,  because usually you are alone (or with just a sitter).

Remember also, that higher dosage equates to more 'fucked up'.  Sometimes I enjoy a nice low dosage to twist reality just a hair, and then kick back and listen to music or go out and sit in the woods and enjoy nature.  For me, I find a nice mellow trip to be much more rewarding than the heroic "who am I" dosage.

yeah, follow the guideliines about set and setting you must have come across a number of times when doing all your reading. be prepared to enjoy it. be prepared for it to be difficult at times. prepare a safe space in case of trouble. have experienced people around you. don't go too far on your first time, i'd say. if you feel positive, if you are ready and willing to accept the risks, which you seem to know, then you are probably ready, and we wish you well. tell us about it when it happens!

Lots of good info in here.  You may also want to read the following two documents:


Just remember that no matter what you decide, there will be more time to try again in the future.  The experience is not permanent, though it may have the power to permanently change a piece of your perspective.  Dose low, perhaps 1-2g dried material (1.7g is a good starter dose I think), ensure you are in a comfortable mindset and surrounding where you will not be bothered or made uncomfortable.  Then let go and enjoy the ride  :mushroom2:

Just start with a lower dose, like half an 8th for your first time. I ate half an 8th my first time and I can honestly say it was my best trip ever. I didn't trip the hardest, but it was just the best, I really can't explain it. I think most would agree with me.
When you do decide to eat them, always remember to stay calm. It will be gone in a few hours and is only temporary.

I split an 8th with someone who was very experienced for my first trip as well and it was fantastic. I admit I was intimidated by it and a little more comfortable when i came down but I couldn't really ask for a better first time. After that i've found it's less intimidating because I'm more comfortable with the state of being. If you think you're ready you probably are. Just remember to accept the frame of mind you'll be in and not try and see things rationally or act rationally to cover up the fact that you're high. I unfortunately had to do that near the end of my trip (thank god it wasn't my peak) because my friend's dad's buddy dropped by and started talking to me. Also, my friend who hadn't shroomed thought it was funny to walk behind me and whisper "hallucin-ucin-ucin-ation-ation-ation" in alternating ears.. that fucker! But really, I'm just raving. If you feel you're ready you are, just be chosey about set and setting and relax into it. Mushrooms can be very wonderful friends:)

If you think you are ready, you are... if you are sure about it. It's all about the mindset :smile:

I was completly ready to eat them the first time i really tripped, the first time i tried to trip i just got a great body buzz. I think that if you freak out when you normally just blazed its the wrong thing for you, you must have a positive mindset going into it, because weird but cool things happen. Just make sure your around some close friends, I know i hate being around sober people, brings down my trip or your around people that wont let you leave by yourself cuz they themselves are scared. Pisses me off im always like get the hell away man i wanna explore my own mind. O well make sure your ready and you have a place to chill and experience everything that is around you! Have fun.

IMHO


you're never ready, you never can be ready, a first psychedelic trip will always exceed your expectations.

all you can do is be prepared

My first trip was a few days ago and it exceeded my expectations. Nothing could prepare me for it. You just gotta do it and try to have fun.

I took 13g wet, picked right off the cake, chewed it up. I just wanted to get a feel for shrooms. And man, did I ever...
