First trip: Alone or with sitter?
    #3120017 - 09/10/04 09:41 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I'll probably have my first trip sometime soon and I'm not sure whether I want a sitter. It's usually recommended but I don't have any friends in the area right now that have tripped before so it would have to be with someone who hasn't done it. So I'm worried that they might not know how to handle me or I might be worried about crying or screaming or looking like an idiot in front of them (while I'm on the shrooms). So I might be more relaxed alone but I'm not sure if this is a good idea. They have seen me drunk plenty of times acting like a fool but never like I've read how people act on shrooms... crying, talking about the pointlessness of existence of any of that crazy shit. Of course I hope it's a great trip and I don't go crazy but one has to be prepared. Any comments?

Just because of the fact that it's your first time, I'd reccomend a sitter.  Or better yet, someone else with more experience tripping with you(a sitter stays sober).  If that doesn't work, then I'd say go ahead and do it alone.  As long as you're doing 1/8th or less, you should be fine.  I actually find tripping alone has given me some of my most insightful trips ever.  And in case it does go bad, just remember:  You're on drugs.  This will pass.  Happy tripping! :mushroom2:

Personally i'd do 1-1.5 grams of shrooms just to get the gist of what they are like. You'll probably laugh a lot and go through the stages where you feel a little on edge(very short and less intense if you are on a small amount). You will have experinced something much different than weed and gotten a taste of the good and bad aspects.

when u buy them they usually come in 8ths. I would eat half of that. Maybe it would also be good to do them in the day time. (things seem more positive in the daytime)

Walk through the woods and be one with nature and experience life alone. I would hate having someone there that is not tripping, but just to watch you, especially one that doesnt completely understand your reason and emotions. That would give resonating vibrations in my brain. That has happened when people who dont understand are around.

probably best to have a sitter being your first time...now that I'm experienced with lsd and mushrooms I prefer to be alone but anything new I would most likely use a sitter

i'd do a small amount like sir tripsalot suggested - just remember, don't eat more if some time passes and you think nothing is gonna happen...just wait till the next day to try again if nothing happens.

also, it's up to you whether or not you want someone there to chill with. if you go with a lower dose, it really doesn't matter if someone is there or not. personally, i feel wierd around people who are not tripping while i'm tripping...

I tripped without a sitter my first time.  Ended up walking around at night, listening to scary drum music, and seeing demons and dancing devils in the trees.  I loved every second of it, never felt scared because the mushrooms were protecting me :cool:


It all depends on your mindset.  If you have ANY concern in your mind, get a sitter, or at least have someone in the house/near your house that you can visit or call at any time during your trip who knows what's up.
