First time tripping- reflections afterwards
    #2429636 - 03/14/04 12:11 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I took mushrooms the first time tonight, splitting 1/4oz with 4 people. It's been an interesting night (I'm at about 4 hours after eating now) but I feel like I'm really on a fear and loathing style trip than anything earthshattering or enlightening. I laughed a lot, and had a lot of fun, and felt like it went on forever, but after it, I think that, if anything, I'm less impressed with psychadaelic drugs, and the possibility of a counter culture. There's no doubt that I got the full effects of the drug, (everything I looked at was wiggling and I was seeing rainbows :smile:) but maybe I didn't have the right setting? I basically travelled around my college campus looking for something to do with my friends who split the quarter with me. I really hoped for something amazing, something I could tell my friends about like the way Ginsberg apparently called up Kerouac and told him he was God, but while this is powerful, I don't feel like it's especially magical... I'm rambling, but I'm a little bit let down.

Any thoughts?
Would simply upping the dose next time help? I don't feel like set and setting changes would be enough to change the whole nature of the trip, really.

How disapointing.

Mine was last night and it was insanely fun, mostly because i was learning to interact with my enviornment again.

Id inhale and everything would inhale with me, then id blow as hard as i could and the room rippled, hard to explain.

Try it a last time, alone, then judge.

Your dose was kind of small, you would probably have more of what you are looking for with at least 3.5grams. I doubt that you felt the whole range of effects with your dose.

Yep. Eat an eighth and be by yourself in the dark if you want to really see what happens.

if you're disappointed with the effects, take an 8th to yourself and lay in a dark silent room for at least three hours.

"I basically travelled around my college campus looking for something to do with my friends who split the quarter with me."

looking for something to do? this is something that kinda gets to me sometimes - when I'm tripping, that's enough activity on its own! If I get up and start "doing stuff," even walking around, it takes away from the trip because I'm distracted from my mind by physical activity. I find it most effective to simply lay somewhere with eyes closed and let the trip come instead of avoiding it by going out and trying to find something to do other than trip.

edit: oh and the best trip-tip of all - listen to Shpongle

I know what you mean. I think thats cause it was a low dose.

I'm hoping it was a dosage issue. I didn't dislike the experience, I liked it quite a bit really, but it wasn't "amazing" like I'd hoped. I think that we sort of squandered it wandering around too... I remember sitting on the campus bus looking over at one of the other tripers and saying "I feel like we're wasting it" and he agreed.

The other thing that I noticed was that it was almost totally gone after 4 or so hours, another thing attributable to the low(ish) dose?

1.75 grams, that's around the lowest dose I'd take. Eat more  :mushroom2:.

Yeah, in retrospect, the trip on 1.75 grams seemed like a bit of a party drug, rather than a powerful psychadelic... We had a ton of fun laughing and acting crazy, but we were never out of control. I'd do that sort of dosage again just for a fun night out, but I think maybe a higher one would be better for more of a "trip"

Dude, if you wanna have a real trip, take atleast 3 grams. The reason you were let down is because you took a pretty low dose. I've taken 2 grams only once and it wasn't intense atall and it didn't compare atall to my other higher dose trips.

Trust me, if you're looking for the magical aspect of shrooms, u gotta take some more...

I like to take them by myself in a darkened room, with psychedelic music playing really loud on my headphones. Good times. It's fun to trip with friends too, but I usually don't have as many profound personal realizations and that kind of thing. I guess it just depends on what you're going for.
