Fluid Intake
    #3159228 - 09/21/04 11:20 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I am new to this message board and I don't regularly post on any others so if I mess this up then sorry in advance. I have never tripped before and I am supposed to do my first this friday, 9/24, but we all know how planning in advance goes so I'm not holding my breath. I've heard from an acquaintance that when you trip you're supposed to drink plenty of water or any other fluid in the hours before you trip. I've tried to read as much as I can in this week coming up to my first and I haven't found any info about fluid intake before or during the experience. Can anybody with some experience under their belt help or give advice?
Thanks

I wouldn't recommend drinking any more or less fluid than it is recommended normally. So, if you drink your half a gallon or a bit more fluid a day usually, try to keep it that level also the day you trip.

I think you're talking about rolling, not tripping. when you take exstacy u need to drink water to stay hydrated but tripping is different, just feel comfortable before you do it.

Thats one of the common misconceptions about ecstacy; that you need to drink water to stay hydrated. This only applies if you are dancing all night and sweating enough to become dehydrated.

There was a tragic case in england a few years back. A girl named Leah Betts died after taking ecstacy on her 18th birthday. The post-mortem infact revealled she had died as a result of drinking too much water. Anyone can drink too much water and it will kill them. It will diltue the blood causing blood cells to expand. The brain tries to expand, but cant due to the skull. Not a nice thing to happen. There was a lot of hype and myth around before this happend that you must drink lots of water when on E's. Sadly it took a death so that people were better informed.

I wouldn't worry about drinking fluids. Just drink when you are thirsty or if you have been sweating more than normal.

Just to clear things up, I'm not planning on doing an ecstacy.

It was never stated what substance you thought that you were going to be using....? The act of "Tripping" could be from a wide variety of substances....

But, I have only heard of dehydrating from taking E a and dancing all night in a hot environment like "altitude" said....

i often have a powerful urge to urinate about midway through the trip. this act seems to 'shorten' the length of the experience, so i often do not take in fluids before the shrooms. i do, however, maintain a high level of hydration in the previous days (then again i drink between 6-8 litres of water a day anyway). what little water i take during the trip is to get rid of the taste and any drymouth. i try to urinate as much as possible immediately before ingesting. imo, resist the urge to urinate during your trip. also, i generally fast before any trips i take (eat one rather small, plain meal or no meals at all) the day before and of the trip. this last is a spiritual decision, however. there is no need for you to do it other than if you find that you vomit as a reaction to the taste (some people do) of the mushrooms. a friend of mine gets what he calls garbage-guts when he ingests and often finds himself vomiting. this is a rare occurance however. enjoy your trip!

If you intake too much of anything into your body you will die. I have found it hard to regulate my substance intake when tripping. So I dont intake any substance. If you feel the need to drink water. Go stand in the shower and let the water pour over your head. It is almost the same thing when tripping.

I've never found urinating to decrease the effects for me, but that's just me.
I always try to remember to drink water while I'm tripping on mushrooms. Anytime that I've not drank enough during the trip, as I come down I start to get an awful headache from being dehydrated.
If you're worried about drinking too much water, than make sure you're extra hydrated beforehand and drink some water after your trip.

You should ALWAYS drink plenty of water. it's just good for you, and you will feel better if you drink plenty of water regularly. and that definitely won't hurt the trip, to be feeling healthy and well hydrated.

Unfortunatly there won't be a trip for me this weekend. My source has run out and my back-up can't find any either. I was really looking forward to doing it but I guess I'll just have to wait until who knows when. But thanks for all the help.
