I May Be Expecting Too Much
    #2381144 - 02/26/04 10:46 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

If any of you have read my first topic (Explaining that my first time to shroom will be in the latter part of this March), then you can identify with me some doubts on how the feeling will be. I'm afraid my initial perspective of what it will be will make the trip boring and leave me ultimately dissapointed. I am looking for hallucinations, and I am looking to enjoy the experience in a nice calm environment; my own expectations worry me. I am so obsessed with the idea (for the past week) of doing shrooms that this is what I do when I get home. I spend roughly 3 hours looking at trip stories and the like. I always feel like, though the experience lasts significantly longer than getting drunk or getting high off of marijuana, it ends too shortly. Does the time pass? let me make an analogy for you. When I make a bowl of nice cheesy macaroni and cheese, and I'm feelin REAL hungry, I tell myself that I want to be tired of it by the time I get to the end of the bowl. So, I hope in this analogy you can see my mind set for shrooms. I don't nessesarily want to be tired of them, I just want to have my fill. I am open to your experiences and what you have to tell me. I'm afraid the answer is inside of me -- I have to create my own happiness. It is such a great method to life, creating your own happiness. On the same token, though, I want to go into auto-pilot and let an external source make my moods.

Simple Statement: I'm simply afraid I am expecting too much out of shrooms.

When i first started, i was really eager too. I actually do find that expectations change your trip a lot. Just let go when tripping and be as open minded as possible. I don't think you'll have your fill on one trip either, because it makes you want to come back for more (there's just thousands and thousands of new things you can experience). It's also hard to remember your trip afterwards a lot because it's hard to describe in words, so you might end up wanting to trip again because of that. When you trip, you do have to create your own happiness...even before the trip. Have a good mindset in a comfortable environment and you'll be awesome. Peace

See, the shrooms explore me. They riddle my mind, they teach me the eternal with direct experience. My soul is one with existance.

I appreciate your help. It is always comforting to know you have people somewhere in the world you can ask questions and, even though it is a leap of faith, trust them on what they are saying. Not because it sounds logical, but because you believe in the goodness of PEOPLE.

It's the tool, friends. Not tool as in the band. but, The Tool. Positive thoughts, not repressing thoughts.

LOL... I guaruntee you, that what ever you're expecting, you're not going to expect it. Before my first trip, many years ago, I spent countless hours researching mushrooms and their effects. I thought I knew what to expect my first trip. For the most part I could indentify what was happening to me, but I had no idea how to relate to the experience. The entire experience exceded all my expectations. I mean you read all these trip reports and think it pretty cool, but not till it happens to you, can you actually relate.

If you get some good shrooms and take the right amount for your first time, I think your going to come out the other end of your trip in awe.

Phase 1... collect underpants... phase 2...??? ... Phase 3 - PROFIT!

So very true...nothing can compare you for the actual experience of tripping.  Just take a dose of good shrooms man, go with the flow, and enjoy yourself.  :smile:

Don't worry man.  I thought I knew what to expect.  I didn't have a fucking clue.  The whole thing about these hallucinogens is, they need to be  EXPERIENCED.  You can't read about the effects and think you know whats going on.

Trust me, you may think you know, but the truth is that you have no idea. 

have a good time    :grin:  :thumbup:

You will be a changed person.  It is true what was said above, words cannot describe, and you are wasting your time to try to understand until you ahve actually experienced it.  Nothing else (non-drug) can even begin to compare to what it is like on mushrooms.  Have a great time, you won't regret it. :mushroom2:
