Lets say without a doubt...
    #3254057 - 10/20/04 12:51 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Let us say that, without a doubt, I've obtained andn identified Psilocybe semilanceata. Even with the very purply brown spore print and a slight bluing in some of the stems particularly near the base or bottoms of the stems.

Here it goes and I need honest advice here.

Even though I know and am for sure of what they are, there is still the fact that I picked them from the wild. After becoming aware of the many dangers I have developed a sorta phobia of them. Is there any way to be able for me to take them and experience it without having a bad trip due to this?

Was just thinking about this. I don't live anywhere that you can pick these, but so often people eat shrooms that they KNOW what they are, or even if they grew them. A bad trip can involve being convinced that you put a horrible poision in you, even if while sober you know exactly what it is. Can't imagine how much worse it would be with the slightest worry of having picked the wrong thing.

I know they must be the right kind. I've posted a few pics here and there. It's just the last time I experienced which wasn't too long ago. I felt just fine, even a little laughy for a little while. Than the visuals came, just the normal stuff really for not too much of a dose. I even I didn't feel sick, just was under the influence. The thought managed to enter my unpredictable thoughts at the time. Yet still I knew it wasn't possible. I know they weren't poisonous but it made for a mildly unpleasent first experience.

How do I conquer this fear?

I think you're asking a really tough question. Have a friend with you whos not tripping that can inform you if you start to freak out. They can maybe recite very simple evidence to remind you that they're safe. (Things that wouldn't be enough to correctly identify them in the first place, but could calm one's nerves). Things like perhaps having a sporeprint handy, or some bruised blue shrooms they can keep pointing to with a friendly "See, they're blue, that means its safe"

Or perhaps write yourself a note ahead of time, about why they're safe.

I know this may sound silly, but its the best I can think of. When you're tripping you don't have your normal sense of trust and reality. People think they're dying all the time without any logical reason. The slightest thought that something could be wrong with a wild mushroom makes it even worse. Just keep those basic simple identification facts in mind and think them to yourself over and over again. And good luck.

Yes indeed because it is so unreal. It's like the very walls to reality fall away and things and time seem to take on a very different form, or meaning, or something.

I wasn't able to recall in too much detail just exactly what I experienced but at the same time I remember. I plan to have a pen and paper ready next time to sort of document the experience. Hopefully.

Sorry for dragging on like that....

if you're not comfertable eating wild shrooms... don't. :/

i feel somewhat nervous also, espicially when giving wild shrooms i picked to friends. for these reasons, in the past, i have aquired my own safe cubensis.

Yeah I hear you. A very good way to enjoy an experience, knowing that you cultivated them.

Yet still I think I'm just gonna have to bear with it. I know it'll be ok, and wherever the experience, or "trip" takes me, I'll be ready. As best as possible.
