come-up
    #2524139 - 04/04/04 12:14 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

hey
ive only tried shrooms twice (eaten fresh both times), and both times the come up have been extremley confusing and even a bit scary... i can only describe it as a really intense "weird" feeling which i do not enjoy, but the peak has been absolutely fantastic both times... anyway, im just wondering is there any way to make the come up a little mellower without losing the intensity of the peak?

Thats just how the come up feels.....don't take the drug if you don't like the effects.

the come-up is not the best thing of a shroom trip but you still ahve to go trough it. maybe drink a beer before eating the shrooms, that's what I like to do.

Yeah, this question has been asked many times....and everyone has their own way of dealing with it, but basically thats what it comes down to. You just have to deal with it. I like to smoke some pot, helps to ease me in.

take the shrooms (or tea, or smoothie, or however/whatever) over the space of 1/2 hour to 1 hour, a little at a time...

some folks would adjust intensity with stuff like:
kavakava
calming tea (like chamomile or tummymint)
a very small amount of a "minor trank" (like maybe 1 or 2 mg valium; don't overdo it!)
a small amount of naicinamide (again, like with tranks, too much might abort the trip entirely)
a little hot cocoa can help...
some folks find one drink of alcohol can help calm the jitters...
pot may help or may not - ymmv...
& some folks like a soak in the ol' hot tub (but the temptation to spend the entire trip in the tub can be overwhelming :wink: ...)
& then there is practicing focusing exercises - anything from silent sitting meditation to chanting OOOOMMMMM to hatha yoga asanas to tai chi chuan...

(heh, check out bernard gunther's book _what to do until the messiah comes_ for some esalen-flavored exercises, mmmmmmkay?)

Here's the way I look at the "come-up". Taking shrooms is kind of like swiming. Well not really, but for this analogy it is. When you want to go swiming, you get all prepared for it, i.e., get you're bathing suit on, get a towel, drive to the beach or the pool. When you're ready to get in, you just jump in. At first the water may be a little too cold for your liking and you're a little uncomfortable. But once you adjust to the water it feels great. This is sort of like taking shrooms, you just need to adjust. Yes, it's uncomfortable, but it's just part of shrooming. This can be a little difficult for a beginer, but you'll get the hang of it. Just sit back, relax, and put your focus on something other then the way you're feeling.

Great analogy. I like how you explained that.
