What do psychedelics mean to YOU? * 4
    #27812108 - 06/09/22 01:28 PM (16 days, 3 hours ago)

Hi! We would like to invite you to participate in a survey about perspectives on psychedelics, as part of an ongoing study at the Centre for Alcohol and Drug Research at Aarhus University in Denmark.

The study is investigating various understandings of psychedelics adopted by internet forum users, e.g. as recreational substances, sacred medicines, or tools for self-therapy or -enhancement. We would greatly appreciate the participation of you and other Shroomery users.

The survey can be accessed through this link: https://survey.au.dk/LinkCollector?key=7N67U4WEU1C1

It is anonymous (i.e. no collection of personal information or traceable data, and no sharing of the raw data) and will take around 10 minutes to complete. Anyone is welcome to participate, regardless of personal experience with psychedelics. You are also more than welcome to share the link outside of The Shroomery. We will be collecting responses from June 2022 until fall 2022.

We cover interesting themes such as motivations, set and setting, positive effects, bad trips, spirituality, future impact and much more.

We will of course report back in this thread about the outcomes of this survey.

You can find further information about our research center here: https://psy.au.dk/en/research/research-centres-and-units/centre-for-alcohol-and-drug-research

You are more than welcome to contact us at map.crf@psy.au.dk, in this thread or via private message.

Thank you!
• Associate professor Margit Anne Petersen (map.crf@psy.au.dk)
• Associate professor Morten Hesse (mh.crf@psy.au.dk)
• PhD Søren Holm (soeho@aarhus.dk)
• Assistant professor Oskar Enghoff (oe.crf@psy.au.dk)

very cool survey!! just finished. the questions were really good

i do think it might help to define a “bad trip” though, because a bad trip can be caused by both internal or external factors. having a bad trip because your buddy who’s never done mushrooms before freaked out on 5g or because you were tripping while your parents were home or something is a lot different than a bad trip that is caused by something internal like struggling with a tough break up or death or other things involving the psyche

great survey just something that crossed my mind on the questions about bad trips. i would certainly avoid talking to cops on mushrooms but i wouldn’t shy away from crying or thinking deeply about something troubling me

i love this comment.  i think "bad" trips can actually be very beneficial and good in the long run.  respect the mushroom and the other psychedelics, folks!  They help us to connect to a power we do not understand and the experience is very much sacred to me.  Especially with psilocybin, DMT, mescaline, and to a lesser but definitely significant extent, LSD.  :psychsplit:

I can definitely tell this is from a college.
"Long-lasting positive effects of psychedelic drugs are essentially due to alterations of established brain networks."

I chuckled.

Always glad to help!

Thanks for the feedback! That's definitely an important nuance, and something we will consider when interpreting the results - especially in relation to the insights that some people gain from "bad trips" - a "bad trip" caused by internal factors is probably more likely to be insightful than a "bad trip" caused by parents bursting in.

Something that I might add further: I don't like using the term "bad trip" because of some of the baggage it brings with it. I think a more accurate term is challenging trip. I've had plenty of challenging trips resulting in sadness, fear, crying, and even feelings of hopelessness. I have yet to refer to any of those experiences as bad though. According to the researchers at Johns Hopkins, even when subjects experienced a challenging trip, most of the time they still benefited from it in the end.

Not often, but sometimes I will go into a trip knowing it will be a challenge. I dread it in the beginning because I know it's going to work me over but I know in the end the catharsis it brings will be beautiful and therapeutic.

Never a bad trip, only a challenging one.

Difficult trip is def not the same as a bad trip

I have had countless difficult trips and only one bad trip.

Bad trips are traumatizing for sure

I suppose you bring up a good point. I should remind myself of that in the future when this topic comes up again.

If you don't mind me asking, would you say your bad trip experience came from a lack of the ability to give in to the trip? Did you learn anything from the experience? Also, does the trauma still affect you. Would you have done anything differently in hindsight? I'm genuinely interested. Thank you.

I've had a difficult trip (good term) and I've had multiple bad, traumatizing trips. Made me stop doing any psychedelics and I believe partially for why I am mentally fucked up till this day. I am HOPING I can micro dose up to some place "nice" and not scarf down a doubled headed, two inch tall, half grown Blue Meanie or a bunch of Albino A+ pins lmfao... :psychsplit: :allseeingeye:

I partially believe this is what happened to me and my brain chemistry has been fucked ever since. I tend to never be able to relax and need to be in control of my highs, so shrooms was a bad move for me. I live a different life damn near 10 years after I got into mycology so I am going to try and reverse time and use this gift GOD gave me to try and SEE if I can heal.

I don't believe in half the spiritual mumbo jumbo people talk about Psychedelics... But lets fucking find out!!!

Thank you for participating! Currently, approx. 80 Shroomery users have completed the survey and approx. 20 have partially completed it. We are still getting new responses every day!

Thanks everyone for continuing to support this, and glad to see some of the questions have sparked an interesting debate about challenging experiences :smile:

Thank you both! It's great that you find the questions and data interesting.

We will not share the raw data, however, due to ethical and privacy considerations regarding individual-level data. But, we can and will share aggregated results of responses to the questions :smile:

Insight.  But not to go far.  As told by whatever that is that if I did I would ruin my being born and the not to respect the veil.  And believe me you will be warned at least in my experience.  What their is to explore in or limited mortality was communicated to that I waited a EXTREEMLY long time to be born an have a body and what I can do with it.  WAKE UP!  You get it when you get it.

Then most just want to assist waking up that in their selves but so much a blind man yet I get why, to a degree, why I am here and chose this as all of us did.  IMO.  Make up your own mind.

Quite an adventure isn't it?  Yet in the spirit world, made me laugh a person saying some beings got pissed off because he was interacting with them and not "dead" yet.  Never think for a second that suicide, which is the stupidist thing a person can do, will allieviate problems and bring happiness.  No.  Enjoy your body as we are all mortal.  Whoever made up this construct great.  My respect to it. 

Simple, take esoterics and one sees through people.  One sees through fake people and governments.  People don't like that, corrupted people within.  Whether with religions, prisons, government, families, I get it.  I am not in charge of things.  Spiritual law.  I fucked with it and wow did I get the worse experience I have had in my life so far.  Being cut off from the grid that connects everything and I mean everything.  No one or group has a trademark on it.  Compared to what the government did to me those 10 minutes compared to 3 months and 10 years probation was nothing.

So it humbled me.  Am a lot careful now how I tread in life and the spirit world.

I took the survey, and I love that people are doing this kind of research.

Warning accepted. Spamblockers activated. You can still infer the meaning by reading the questions.

In what I would call parallel dimensions,  different, hypothetical outcomes have a geographic orientation, as on a map or boardgame. The 'third way' is literally lateral. It's a different path you can take on a walk.

"Centre for Alcohol and Drug Research"

"Alcohol and drugs"? What is alcohol if not a particularly harmful drug?

You are almost certainly aware that one of the uses of psilocybin is in overcoming alcohol addiction.

Hi, thanks for the comment! It's an interesting observation, and yes - I guess you could say that our research centre's English name is somewhat unfortunate in this context. The original Danish name is "Center for Rusmiddelforskning", which roughly translates into "Centre for Intoxicant Research". The word "rusmiddel", however, does not have the "toxic" connotation of "intoxicant". Breaking down the components of the word, "rus" is a high/rush and "middel" is a means to something. I don't know the exact history of our Danish and English names, but I can imagine they were chosen to align with existing terminology and distinctions between research areas in Denmark/internationally.

I definitely agree (as do most researchers in this field) that any "alcohol vs drugs"-distinction has very little (if anything) to do with pharmacology and a lot (if not everything) to do with legislation, cultural attitudes, stigma, etc.

It might have made sense to ask about: How long have you been using psychedelics. Also: do you engage in other contemplative practices such as meditation?

Also, there was the question about: should psychedelics only be used in therapeutic settings? / should psychedelics only be used in ceremonies?

I am very much in favour of both. But the two questions seem to be mutually exclusive, because of the word "only". So I checked "neither agree nor disagree"

Same about legalisation. I think, there should be some form of regulation. Shrooms and LSD should definitely not be limited to therapeutic use. Yet, measures should be taken to minimise risks of improper/harmful use (leading to psychosis etc). But the questionnaire only let me vote on the option of whether or not I want total unrestricted availability.

personally, I have only begun to discover psychedelics in my late 40s, and I think that risks of something going severely wrong are much higher the younger you are. So there needs to be some regulation, maybe in form of a "drivers license" for psychedelics as Rick Doblin proposes.

To me psychedelics represent psychological possibilities.

My dream trip would be one on account of which my longest standing - longest gestating - creative ideas take a profound step towards realization.

I think knowledge and education go a very long way.

I heard from a young age that smoking weed all the time in adolescence was a bad idea. I still smoked weed from a relatively young age, but avoided becoming a regular smoker because of those warnings and attitudes- not just that weed was bad, but that it was not a good thing to go overboard with in adolescence.

Conversely, I was socialized to view alcohol very differently, and have struggled to limit my drinking throughout my life as a result- even though I've always vastly preferred weed.

I was also super into psychedelics from early adolescence, and actually did a huge amount of reading up on them as well. At that time, the available literature really didn't address the risks of psychotic reactions, triggering schizophrenia in young people, etc. Those were all things I had to learn through a combination of observation and first-hand experience.

I think that especially in the case of psychedelics, which often have a tendency to be either deified, touted as a cure-all, or demonized, solid information about the risks and benefits, especially to younger people, is essential to developing balanced approaches to their use.

At the end of the day, though, I don't particularly regret dropping acid in my early teens. Certainly beat taking up cigarette smoking.

While it's true that risks decrease with age, I think that this is part of the much bigger question of how the fuck to define and handle full-blown adulthood in the modern world.

Good survey, thanks for researching this stuff, hopefully with enough research we can change public opinion and make steps to make recreational and medicinal medicine's safe and accessible for anybody.

On the questions about bad trips. i would certainly avoid talking to cops on mushrooms but i wouldn’t shy away from crying or thinking deeply about something troubling me




Something that I might add further: I don't like using the term "bad trip" because of some of the baggage it brings with it. I think a more accurate term is challenging trip. I've had plenty of challenging trips resulting in sadness, fear, crying, and even feelings of hopelessness. I have yet to refer to any of those experiences as bad though. According to the researchers at Johns Hopkins, even when subjects experienced a challenging trip, most of the time they still benefited from it in the end.

Not often, but sometimes I will go into a trip knowing it will be a challenge. I dread it in the beginning because I know it's going to work me over but I know in the end the catharsis it brings will be beautiful and therapeutic.

Never a bad trip, only a challenging one.




I agree with this. I've had nightmarish experiences with lsd and I still don't think of them as negative and they never really put me off of it. Rather I see it like opening the hood on my subconscious as it processes traumatic things happening in my life.

I was actually able to not compulsively drink this fathers day and I say the shrooms did it.

I tripped the other day (Friday night) for the first time in 6 years and for the first time in a LONGER amount of years I was able to stop myself from bing drinking on a day like this. Honestly I thank GOD for shrooms.

It's a story heard many a time, psilocybin is an incredible medication along with many other psychedelics and need to be made available to people.

This survey really made me think! I added in the comment section that I would agree strongly if the question worded "to enjoy altered sensory perception" was worded enhanced sensory perception... Especially in lower doses. For example: sharper vision and clearly hearing music at lower volumes.
