1st time tripping alone
    #1976003 - 10/03/03 01:29 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Hey everyone, this is my first time posting on this great site. I've done mushroom 2 times. The first time I was scared shitless until I peaked, then it was the most beautiful thing I'd ever experienced. The second time I was much more relaxed during the whole thing. Both these times I had a "guide" in the room with me. My roomate is gone for the weekend and I've got some mushrooms that I really want to eat. I think I'm ready to trip without a guide but I'm still a little nervous. Can anyone give me some tips to keep myself calm and really enjoy the whole thing? Thanks in advance.

Bill

If you're nervous, maybe you should find somebody else who can be your guide or trip with you?

I would wait till u have more experience

I had tripped 8 times before I tripped alone, and few of those times I tripped really hard to, anyways, the time that I tripped alone was my first bad trip. Just warning you, and once u start having a bad trip, its fucking hard to get out of it, especially if your alone

I would have to agree with that. You never know what could happen, especially if you plan on taking a high dose

I have only ever tripped with other people two or three times. I prefer to be alone and find it to be a much more enlightening experience. Don't take a massive dose your first time alone. Remember how much you enjoyed the experience in the past. Make sure you have everything ready before hand since nobody will be around to help load a bowl or get you a glass of water, etc. Have a "safe room" setup to get away to if you sensory input becomes overloaded.... someplace nice, safe, dimly lit, and quiet. Decide what you expect from the experience before hand and ensure that you are ready... it is normal to be a little bit nervous... and most importantly, if things start to go bad, remember the mantra: It is only a drug, I will be fine in a few hours/by morning. I have made it through many a bad trip by reciting the above until things became more managable.

I tripped alone in the dark with no music my second time.
I didn't spend the whole trip in the dark, but from the peak and on.
It was a intens Lvl 3.
Maybe it wasn't the smartest thing to do, but it turned out Grrrrreat!
I even looked at myself in the mirror, it was weird and very profound.
I managed to stay calm, just by telling myself not to freak =)
Also my set and setting was very good. Thats a must if you're tripping alone. Don't be scared of the trip ahead. And most important....

DON'T PANIC! hehe

Good Lukkk

Sounds lame to me.

I really like bonding with other people when I trip.

If you're still a little nervous I would advise against tripping alone at this point.

I *sort* of tripped alone my second time triping. My friend only hung around for about 2 hours into my LSD peak and left. I spent the rest of the experience by myself. I was faced with a brief panick attack though when all the power in my house went out.

At this point I always trip alone, no matter what. Psychedelics are generally rare around so when I do get them I want total control over my environment. Other people keep pulling you back into reality from the little world inside your head.

i was in your same spot kind of. i tripped once with 2 freinds. then i had about 1/8 dried and wasnt sure whether to do them alone or not. i ended up eating them alone, and it was a great experience. i wasn't totaly ready, because the first hour or so was failry bad, but it got better and i learned alot from it.

Mushrooms are a fairly personal experience anyway - i find when i'm tripping with other people i can't really talk much, my conversational skills just disappear. :P

a solo trip can and should be a wonderful thing. make sure you write a list of "things to do" while you're sober first, or you'll never make up your mind about what to do. and being around sober people when you're totally high by yourself is a recipe for paranoia - don't be afraid to tell people around you that you're comfortable with that you're on mushrooms and are acting strangely for a reason. :smile:
