I'd say either what you said, the overanalyzing and all, or the feeling that all matter is connected and there is no beginning/end to anything so nothing matters. i guess it's a loss of novelty really. there are a few things i regret about it, but i'm overall satisfied with my choices. i guess in a way it's a paradox, they open your mind but in doing so you instantly lose some degree of connection w/ conventional reality.

Because on a trip; you often tend to notice how great life is under the influence of psychadelics, and that normal life is often very shallow, square, and nothing compared to tripping.



I can't really say I've experienced this. Tripping helps me appreciate life more. I have actually had suicidal thoughts while tripping, but not out of any depression or anxiety, but rather out of a desire to "cross over" to the unknown.

Alienation and anxiety. Tons of good explanations here so I won't bother. :laugh:

Heh, I felt this way long before I touched recreational drugs. But whatever, I just keep on trying to make myself into a better person and try not to think about bad things. It may seem like I'm living in denile or something, but who really cares? No one apparently... Just have fun with life, have fun with psychedelics and let them be a teacher. There's no point in moaning and feeling bad because the world around us is less than perfect. All I can say is that it's worth living, so perk up.

People will pick up on it again. But that's just crazy.

My op.

definitely. so far at least. everyone's mind is different, sure i know i experienced shit that not many people have, but i don't feel like I'm alienated from society i feel more as if i have a leg up and am a more easy going person because of the trips I've had. possibly more aware in a way of my surroundings, you could say it makes you analyze life more. for me at least. truthfully, nothing bad has come from me tripping yet besides spending money on it hahahaha

To me, a big downside is that most people will ever understand how it feels to be on a psychedelic. When I was on LSD for the 2nd time, I had so much trouble believing that nobody felt the way I did at that time, and most people never will know such great love and happiness because they are afraid of this 'drug'. I wanted to go up to every person I saw and tell them how great everything was and how much I loved the world. I hate not being able to tell my experiences to everyone, but I know they will just call me a stoner and think lower of me. I almost called my mother at one point and told her I loved her, to which she would've replied "Are you feeling ok?"

This world we live in is so fucked up...

"What's the biggest danger of psychedelic use?"

Schizophrenia, without question.

I tend to think of these "heightened emotional states" in clinical terms. Schizophrenia.

if you have a problem being apart of an elite part of humanity, then the problem is with yourself. I can't believe that you would put what other people feel about you into emotion. These same people believed the world was flat not like 600 years ago.

To come across this substance is a very very special thing my friends.

the biggest danger in my opinion, is that people might be unprepared to face whatever changes in reality they discover.

Not like "crazy visuals", but some people seem unprepared to experience vast changes in perception. If your not ready, some of the realizations can be quite shattering.

Of course shattering revelations and life changing moments is why i take mushrooms. but thats just me.

Some people just want to get really fucked up.

I like to look at mushrooms the way most people like to look at flowers.

this is an amazing game

I think the dangers are different for everyone. Personally, I don't find myself trapped in my head more than before, and in fact less. I don't fear for my sanity and I'm pretty secure in my small corner of reality.

As for alienation, not necessarily bad. I don't think I would rather be sleepwalking my whole life just to fit in with other people who are asleep as well in often totally bizarre dreams. I have discovered that there are plenty of people who have experienced the kinds of things I have and they are often very rewarding to be freinds with. We tend to seek out each other so it isn't that difficult and I feel alot of hope knowing that we are growing and evolving and perhaps even the future of the human race.

Now, the downsides I have experienced: Feeling less articulate and even dumber, and feeling burnt out. With the former it's like my mind has so many diffuse connections and so many ambigous possibilities that I feel less sharp and it is harder to put things into words.

As for the latter, sometimes I feel that I have experienced too much intensity and in a sense I am already very old. Burn out. When you have had trips that felt longer than your entire sober life and more intense than your birth you tend feel a little detached and unmoved by things.

2. "We were feeling pretty good so we decided to smoke a few bowls..."
3. "I had to be real quiet because my parents were asleep upstairs..."

So ingesting some chemical derived from mold and/or fungus that will impair my brain's normal functioning for a few hours will allow me to be a part of an elite part of humanity? Do you realize how ignorant that sounds? This type of thinking honestly frightens me.

Ego Death.


It would be incredibly easy for someone to do something very drastic in this state of mind, simply because dying isn't scary, it's just accepted.

I remember being in DARE when i was much younger and some of the stories they would tell you are not only ridiculous, but completely untrue. One story was that a woman was on LSD and thought her infant was a turkey so she baked it in the oven. Now I look back and think thats hilarious, but at the time I guess it scared me.

my lord... you think i'm not well aware that they are all dead? Try putting that in perspective maybe? Those same guys are being replaced by muslims who think they get 934 virgins are some shit when they blow themselves up. And so on.

I thought you could figure something like that out tho

Maybe there's a reason for that; maybe it's time for you to step back and take a long, hard look at your life.
