I perfer not to trip with sober people, unless I'm close with them. Sometimes I can get bad vibes from people I don't know too well ..... "am I acting weird"...."why do they keep looking at me".....and lots of thoughts like that..

Unless they are mature, no. If you have fucktards screwing around while tripping it can really affect the trip. Someone who has tripped before would be good, because they know what you are experiencing, and come to your aid when you request it instead of morons running round trying to freak you out.

yeah there's nothing more annoying than someone saying "OMG you're on magic mushrooms?!" then run up and start clapping infront of your face. Damn tards :smile:

If I am going to be around people who know that I am on mushrooms, then I would prefer it to be close friends.

If they've tripped before, it might be alright, although I prefer to be completely alone. I don't even like to be with my Self (pun intended har har)

:thumbup: Quoted for emphasis

There is nothing more gay than a person that tries to fuck with you when you are tripping. Mostly because nothing they do actually fucks with you, you just get irritated and see how immature they are. And getting angry during a trip is a total waste of the mush...


Anyway, if it's a sober person you are comfortable with and one that cares about you, then it should be good times to have them along.

Generally, I wouldn't reccomend it, unless you know the people fairly well and are comfortable around them. Preferably, they should be people who have tripped before themselves. Also depends on dosage. I've taken small doses and hung out with my friends while they were sober, and they didn't even suspect a thing. It also depends on how well you handle yourself on psychedelics. Definitely wouldn't reccomend it to people who are new to psychedelics.

I've only taken mushrooms twice. The first time I was with a combination of people who were tripping and others who werent. I felt really uncomfortable (paranoid thoughts and delusions, etc...) until the "non-trippers" left. After that, everything was peachy. The other time was with a good friend who was also tripping and it was a much more positive experience.

Yes, provided that they are friends who know what you are doing, who also partake of the sacred substance and that you can talk to them about what is happening. Nothing hurts more then trying to hide you trip from other people (especially when your going balls out). Ive had great experiences with other people who werent triping but knew exacly what was going on ( theyve shown me some greats trip enhanching tips) and Ive had bad experiences trying to hide it from people. This is why cops suck so much.

Thats so true about (non-drug) people trying to fuck with you by doing shit that really doesnt freak you out....but for me, if i'm tripping with sober people, I can still have an enjoyable night...but its almost as if I'm subconciously fighting the trip in order to seem normal enough to interact with the sober people.  This pisses me off, by the end of my trip i feel like i wasted a dose.  All in all, while tripping, fuck sober people and their non-trippy ways.  Just wander away somewhere with your tripping frineds, It'll be much more fun if you let the shrooms take hold. :wink:

as long as your not the only one tripping, a few sober people ain't that bad, but it's much better when everyone trips

Should I trip with sober people?

by: blinkidiot & doc & shroomism

A "Trip Sitter" can be a very helpful person to have around especially if this person is naturally laid back and has experience with psychadelics and tripping people. They can provide a basis for reality if you get too far "out there".. but they can still join in on your deep thinking and humor or acknowledge some of your tripping ideas. This has the benefit of providing balance.. the sober person has entertainment and someone to care for, and the tripping person has someone to ground them and experiment with. However, some people don't want to be too grounded while tripping, or at all.. so it's important that the sober person be someone whose natural personality would not clash with the tripping vibe.

Unless they have tripped before, sober people will likely be incredibly annoying and distracting. People who don't know what it's like might try to mess around with you, which is especially irritating.
As a rule: try to avoid it, unless it is your first time tripping, or you enjoy company. If it can't be avoided or it's for personal safety, try to find another location or time for the experience before going through with it.

If you want to go deep, tripping alone can be a very enjoyable experience; not having to distract focus from your experience because of other people is important.

Tripping in groups is also fun.

Tripping with sober people requires trust. Be sure to start with a small dose if you insist on trying to trip with the sober.

Although sober people may be bothersome to you while you are tripping, and tripping solo is very beneficial, if it is your first psychedelic experience DON'T TRIP ALONE. In a worst case scenario that you are confronted by an authority, or by a life or death situation, making quick coherent decisions is difficult whilst under the influence of psychoactives. You may quickly find yourself in the need of someone sober enough to help you. Most of the time tripping with sober people really doesn't have an effect on me, people may try to "mess" with you, but this is the least my concerns, and their help outweighs their annoyances 100 fold.

In an ideal group situation all but a small amount of people are under the influence. The person or persons who take one for the team are considered nannies in most circles, and deserve the love similar to a mother. Having someone that can act fast if things get hairy, change the cds, and generally take care of the trippers is incredibly beneficial to the sense of safety, which in turn leads to "better" more enjoyable experiences. But by no means is this person your bitch or treated as a slave; if anything they are moreso your superior if not equal.
