Pointers for the newbie?
    #2754175 - 06/01/04 08:06 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I just wanted to get advice from a person who has actually done shrooms. I want to shroom for the first time. I have no prior experience with any other drugs, including alcohol. Can I get some real-world pointers on how to make this a good experience? Also, how much should I be taking, keeping in mind this is my first trip, although I don't want it to be lame and still desire a pretty strong effect. Thanks for your help.

Never done ANY drugs? Tell me, why do you wish to try mushrooms? Wow, never smoked a joint or drank a beer or anything? Well Dr. GDman will perscribe what you need. Start smoking some pot, so you know what it feels like to get high. After you know what that's like, if you wish to try mushrooms eat 2 grams. Smoke some pot with it, if you feel comfortable with pot. Relax, enjoy, go with the flow, be in a nice setting with a good mindset. Make sure you have no obligations the day after, nothing to think about, if you live with them make sure your parents arn't an issue.

First off, why do you want to do shrooms?
I mean, I think it's awesome that you're curious and want to trip. But you have to ask yourself what's intriguing about it, what you want out of a trip.

The best advice I can give you is to look around the FAQ's of this site--it's the best on the net. 
The most importnat things are set and setting.
Set=mindset, your mental preparation for your psychedelic journey.
Setting=when, where, with whom, etc. If you are going to trip with someone, make sure they are trustworthy, and lay out some groundrules as far as changing music, turning on lights, etc. Collective decisions. Also, stay far away from anywhere where you could run into authority figures (parents, police, schoolteachers...)

Find a nice place in nature-a park, a forest, somethin like that.  If not possible, get a comfy pillow, and some nice headphones or speakers and some good tunes (Look around this forum for some great musical recommendations).

REMEMBER: be prepared (Mentally, Psychically, and read up in FAQ's), it's the best way to have the best trip possible.

Any more specific questions?

As far as dosage, I highly recommend getting a digital scale-you definitely want to know what you're eating. If not possible, judge from the bag--if you buy a quarter, eat a little more than a fourth of that and you'll be set :wink:

Good luck young Psychonaut!

I think you should experience some common mind-altering drugs first.

Basicaly do what Dr. GDman prescribed for you...

Yeah, GDman says some good things.
Although I had never smoked pot before I tripped, and it was a fucking blast.
Definitely make sure you have no obligations, the rest of the day, or for a while afterward.
Oh, and don't eat for a good 3 hours before you munch the mushrooms.

I wanted to experience shrooms before smoking weed. I said to myself I would never smoke weed, but I drink. After like 5 months of drinking I just wanted to experience with shrooms and have a blast. But then one night I ended up getting drunk and was offered a hit of weed and took it. Then I started to smoke just a little and 2 weeks later I ate some mushies, then smoked a fat joint. (truly heaven)

The reason I want to trip is because I want to know what it feels like to have everything distorted. I really want to get into it for the intellectual/spiritual reasons. I don't want to try weed before because I have researched it and found that it has many carcinogens. Mushrooms appear to have the least amount of and most mild negative side effects of the hallucinogens, that is why I think it will be really fun because I won't be worrying about getting really paranoid and crazy. I also have two scheduled sitters. We will be driving to Wisconsin, so I'll have one person driving and one in the back with me, will that be a problem? We will have calming and relaxing music on. My friend is taking away my cellphone and anything around that could be potentially dangerous. So can I still proceed to take the 2g if I don't smoke pot prior to the ingestion? Also, how do I make sure I have a good "set"? Yeah, I will report back to see what happens. I'm also having trouble finding someone who deals shrooms around me (Chicago, Illinois, but the suburbs not the big city) considering all my friends are straightedges. So yeah, if you guys could answer my questions, that's be great.

oh right, I was talking to you on irc, I  strongly urge you to try pot, it won't hurt you. Belive me, it won't give you cancer and it will help you figure out whjta getting high is all about. Some people bug out whne they get really high and trust me, on mushrooms, you'll get  reallllyyy high. It won't kill you, pot and mushrooms, relax enjoy the finer things in life :smile:. Trust me. Anyway, I can't recomend tripping in a car for the first time, it might be ok, but I think you'll want to walk around a little.

happy trails

How much is pot going for nowadays? So if I don't try pot, are you saying I'll flip if I do shrooms? And is 2g even worth doing because most people are saying it's not enough to get a good effect, but since I'm a n00bie, would it be fine? Thanks

well, you won't nesicerly flip out, you'll be fine, just be happy. pot isn't a "bad drug" though, really it isn't that bad. try it sometime, it's awsome on mushrooms. price can very, useually 10-15 bucks a gram. 2 grams is good for a first time, nothing spectacular, but for a first time without any expiriance with anything, it'll be wicked  :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :grin:. Smile.

it might be too overwhelming with the movement and the lights on the cars and seeing the landscape go by fast.

That's what I hear from some people. So I think I'm gonna make them stop a lot along the way so I can get out and explore. :-) Also, are shrooms expensive? I read like 20-40 for 1/8, but what would 2g probably cost me?

oh yeah, this is another reason why "road tripping" for a first timer might not be great. but keep in mind no matter how you feel while on shrooms, there isn't a sign that says "I'm tripping" over your head. Wear sunglasses  :cool:.
