I actually prefer to trip by myself.  I find that when I trip with others, there are more variables for things to go wrong; for example, if your friend has had a bad day, or gets sick, then it could negatively impact your trip.  If you trip alone, you are only responsible for yourself and your own feelings throughout the trip.  If you are in the head-space to trip by yourself, then you should definitely do it and report back.

I feel that tripping alone is better. I like to take +5g, rarely less.
  On low doses I'm fine with others, I can have a conversation no problem. Right around the +4g  I tend to hear a voice, it is usually very talkative and it engulfs my hearing sense. It speaks to me directly, not always but at least 70% of the time. I cannot pay attention to others while in that state. I hear the "mushroom" and the person. It makes me frustrated.

Now, I live with my wife so I rarely get to trip truely alone. We have a spare room I use as a lab, we have a bed in there so most of my trips take place in this room. My wife does not disturb me and I've definitely had moments where I thought, "oh shit, I'm gonna die. Maybe I should go get help." Never have asked for help, even though I should have in some instances. Lately I've tripped for about 4 hours in silent darkness then I watch some Dr. Who. I've never been bored while skimming the cosmos but the pre flight can be tedious. All in all I think you'll have a good time.

I feel tripping with someone else can teach you about yourself as well. Yeah there may be more potential conflict, but no more than the conflicts we create for ourselves. It’s nice to be able to laugh with someone, cry, talk, and really work through some things.

You can always ask for your own space too.

Communal trips can be very beneficial to the group. And yes the potential for conflict goes up astronomically as you add heads to the session. I've only tripped a handful of times with other people.

I find the stigma around tripping to be headache inducing and not many of my friends trip regularly. So for now I like to stay clear of people while tripping.
I have plans for a small get together so we can dose relatively high. This is something I've wanted to share with family and friends. I was planning it for spring break.  Maybe six of us total.

Any try a mushroom ceremony with loved ones?

I hope your ceremony goes great! It’s a different experience all together tripping with others. I trip with my gf now pretty much every time. I wonder how it would be doing a solo trip sometime. I’m sure I could handle it, I just like the feeling of someone there Incase I have a nervous breakdown.

I’ve done senthetics before by myself and had a good trip. Did mushrooms alone once when I was younger and got really depressed and reached out to my dad apologizing for everything. I was crying my eyes out heart hurting.

Doing psychedelics alone definitely allows you to dig deeper. Maybe that’s why I’m so afraid... I’m already a introvert by nature though, so maybe I could really benefit from more solo trips.

I hear it’s more expensive now, if you can even source it.

I understand the hurst sister. I’ve been mislead, and mistreated many of times. Don’t let your heart be closed just because of a few bumps. Stay up! Or at least try.

Could be great,  could be awful. Why not err on the side of caution and have a sitter the first couple of times? You have the rest of your life to go solo

The experience is different; its like going to the woods by your self. You don't have to worry about others which lets you focus on yourself. You could try doing it with your girl friend in the other room. Just check out for a little while; take a vacation from it all.

  I did not dive into these things my self with high doses. I eased my self up.

  I felt like i had to work out these thing that bothered me the most before i could enjoy the high dose trips. I would always think about my life and how i was always lazy. I felt like i was always letting those i care about down. I had to try to make an effort to be the person i wanted to be. Its something i've known for a long time but the mushrooms literally made me confront those parts of me that i despised, the parts of me that i try to run from. I came to terms with the fact that i've been unhappy due to my own actions. And i had to change something. Something had to change. Well, i already knew. I had to stop smoking cigarettes, i had to start sleeping better, eating better, being responsible for the things i've decided taken upon my self. Whether it be work, home life, what ever.

Eventually as i began to feel like i wasn't just wasting away doing nothing i began to see a whole different side of the mushroom experience, the strangest visions and strangest sensations i've ever had.

I do believe the solo trips are important. You do go deeper into your own mind but we also have to be willing to confront our bullshit.

edit: I might know a good mimmosa vendor but we're not allowed to post them here. I bought about 200g of shredded stuff and it was really good. They use it for purple dye, so that might help.

This is exactly the kind of thing that is holding me back. I'm afraid of confronting my bullshit. :sad:

Why be afraid of ur own bullshit? Tripping on shrooms isn't going to be "too much". My exes friend is a 50 year old black lady from vrooklyn, no hallucinogen experience in her life, and she handled a 3g shroom trip with me perfectly fine. And then she continued to trip with me till this day. Mushrooms don't make u loose ur mind. Sure, things get weird and trippy, but ur just fearing the "what if I have a bad trip"...

Baby steps are fine I guess for some people, but it creates more anxiety than just going for it.

just think of a bad trip and dealing with your bullshit as cleaning out the kitty litter - yeah it stinks and no one enjoys doing it but damn if the place doesn't smell a lot fresher after. :P it's not going to go away if you don't do anything about it, and if you keep leaving it alone eventually you're going to be mauled in your sleep by a very furious kitty...figuratively speaking. that or have them take a crap on your face.

if you can handle normal chores, you can handle this. just make some hilariously disgusted faces and do it! >:O

Did I say anything about "losing my mind"? I may find the prospect of confronting my bullshit deeply discomfiting, but hardly equivalent to anything I would imagine as a so-called "bad trip".

I just feel like people worry too much. If ur gonna eat 10 grams, sure, I'd be worried too. But a regular dose 3.5 grams give or take, has never made me reflect on anything. I'm just tripping, seeing things morph and move and colors changing.

And I didn't say u specifically said "lose ur mind".. just seems like people that havnt done higher doses tend to think shrooms are stronger than they are. Working ur way up to a regular dose just gives people the wrong impression of what shrooms do. That's just my opinion tho.

Through hell, fire, and flames, we will rise like the Phoenix from the ashes of our own self limiting beliefs. It never gets easier, just progressively changes. Swing high, swing low, and hope for the best.

I do go outside and smoke alone while tripping. Last night on L at the dance event I broke away from her and was able to move freely. Not breaking away as in neglecting her.. just really feelings the vibes for myself and others around me as well.

Glad you found a hook on that mimosa. Enjoy the process!

For me tripping is such a personal journey. When I have tripped with friends it has distracted me from really truly getting into the trip properly and using it to think and learn.

Once when I had a heavy trip with a friend he had a very bad experience as the trip was way too strong for him and he was losing himself and began to panic. Looking after somebody when you're tripping and they're freaking out definitely isn't fun.

When tripping alone you can listen to whatever music you want, watch whatever you want and do whatever you want.

Tripping alone is definitely preferable. I get the impression that the real adults and those that take psychedelics more seriously prefer tripping alone. Those that just see it as a draft laugh trip with friends.

I always use the sacrament alone... didn't Terrence McKenna recommend it as the best way to trip?
