Amount vs. Experience
    #2428468 - 03/13/04 08:41 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Ok, I was thinking and I thought if you only have a small amount of shrooms vs. a larger amount does that decrease your chances of having a bad trip? ..Or if you have a bad trip on a very low amount will it be as bad?

The reason I ask is that I seem prone to having bad luck and I still haven't tripped yet. I'm not sure if I will sooner or later or whenever.. but I'm just trying to well educate myself in case I do.. with the lowest risk of something negative occurring.

if i just have a real small amount at first would that give me an idea as to how I could handle it and probably not have anything bad happen as well?

I also have a seratonin question.. if someone has a very low amount of seratonin how would that affect their trip considering shrooms revolve around it?

Yeah start with a small amount if you're unsure... you are more likely to have a bad experience if you take alot your first time. Take an eighth or something like that.

..But is there any amount low enough that i can almost guarantee having a good experience? ..what if I just took a gram?

Hey  :smile:

Nothing can guarantee a good experience, but the opportunity to have a great experience begins with *you*.  Definately start out small in the beginning.  I would take 1.5 grams dry for your first time if you just want a gentle taste of what mushrooms are about. 

Don't spend too much time worrying about your trip, just enjoy yourself.  :smile: Make sure you are in a good mood/frame of mind.  I often do alot of reading and painting, along with soothing music a few days before a trip to get ready.  I think of it as absorbing positivity before a trip. 

Good luck and I'm sending lots of positive vibes your way.  :mushroom2:

Have faith in the mushrooms, they've been looking after people for thousands of years. Don't worry and don't fight, the shrooms have got your best interests at heart. You can trust them totally.

Bad trips are not that bad man. Theres no point to fear them like death itselft or something. I had my share of 'bad' trips, and some very pretty bad ah! But theres always something good in each, if you're thinking about it.
an eight seems like a LOT for a first dose tho.
Start with 1.5-2g. Dont worry, itll be intense :smile:

You won't have a bad trip. Trust me.

Just eat an eight, and let your mind wonder.

If you set yourself up for sucess, you'll have a good time. Stay around 2 grams. Provide yourself with a comfortable environment, surrond yourself with friends you trust. Listen to your favorite music. Most of all, fill your mind with everything there is to know about mushrooms. Ignorance was probably the main cause of most my bad trips. Knowledge is half the battle.

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

well if one has a "bad" trip on a low dose, the trip probably could have been "worse" on a larger dose

But if you take a dose that's too low, you might end up thinking:" is that all there is?"

You have to decide what you wanna do; play it safe on a moderate trip, or take a risk and go for the rollercoaster-experience.

I thought the same way the first few times I tried them. Tried half a gram at first at felt something but not much. My best experience was at about 2 grams, trust me, the shrooms are not evil, they are a wonderful gentle friendly thing. Where and how you take them is far more important than amount. Take 1.5 - 2 grams (dry) when you are happy relaxed in familiar surroundings and you will be fine!!

I did 4 grams on Friday at home and had one of the best times of my life.

Also use music!! make sure you listen to some of you absolute favourite sounds!

Awesome!

"But if you take a dose that's too low, you might end up thinking: 'is that all there is?'"

yea hI agree - whenever I take a low dose because I'm nervous, the trip goes great and I'm always pissed later that I didn't take more

I dont know if anyone else ever feels this way......
Sometimes when I take only a gram or two I sometimes have a bad trip. Because I dont have that much in my system, i sometimes seem to not be able to get over the beginning anxiety. I never really cross over into a strong trip...and my body feels like it wants to. But I cant because I didnt take enough. So I stay on this constant anxious ride.....dont like it.
But then again, it could be coincidence, and only be because of the setting I was in everytime.

Yeah; that feeling like you don't really break through; and you keep getting that thought that something's wrong, something's missing.

Dude, don't try and *find* a good trip, just look, and expect an experience with confidence without being cocky, but being confident that you want to try the mushrooms. Trust me, the good trip will come to you.

Let the mushrooms know that you want to trip from it for the right reasons...

First time my freind and I ever tried shrooms, years ago, we split an 8th. That seemed to be a fairly decient ride for a first time, and it's pretty convient if you have a like minded freind. Just split the price and bag with someone this way neither of you get left with something you don't want if you don't like it. I'm sure you will though ;p
