Telling your friends about shrooms.
    #3408325 - 11/25/04 04:17 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I have a friend who I think would REALLY enjoy shrooms. But the thing is he isn't too keen on trying them, because he just doesn't know enough about them. I guess he is worried about having a bad trip or the shrooms making him go crazy or something.

He is not diametrically opposed to taking them, I think he just doesn't know enough about them. How can I explain to him as rationally and logically as possible that shrooms pose no threat to him, but instead are quite wonderous and amazing? I know people have bad trips sometimes but my two trips have been mind blowing and absolutely amazing, I would like him to experience the same thing.

Probably a lot of people will say just point him to Erowid, but I don't think he is going to sit there and read the VOLUMES of information on Erowid... I think it would be satisfactory if I could just explain to him that there are no dangers and that they are totally worth experiencing. Any tips or suggestions? Has anyone else been successful getting someone on the "borderline" to try them?

Then ask him if he wants to try them.

I wouldn't have a problem asking a friend if they wanted to eat some mushrooms. I'm suprised you could be nervous about something like that with a good friend.

Well, maybe if you guys just got to know each other.

Just ask if he wants to try some, and if he doesn't, ask why not. If he starts talking about a bunch of myths, then tell him that's what they are, and show him information on them.

Giving someone drugs without their concent is a good way to really fuck them up (NOT in a good way though).

Think about what would happen if they freaked out, got some kind of mental disorder from it for the next few years. They wouldn't know, but deep down you'd know you were responsible.

Bad idea, don't follow that advise.

Yeah obviously that is a stupid idea.

I have never flat out asked him if he wanted to try them because he has already commented a few times about being leery of trying them. I know that this is just from ignorance though, from his comments. I just haven't talked to him much about them.

Don't lie to him - there are dangers involved with hallucinogenic drugs. Make sure he knows that. You don't have to scare him, but you can't tell him its just like candy, either.

Two trips? I don't think you've covered the whole spectrum with just two journeys. Anyway, I'd direct him here to do some research and get to feel more comfortable with the territory. Just make sure you don't jump in over your head....

I'd tripped many many many times, and still went a little too far...

Gives great stories now, but, a lot to deal with at the time.

Get him to come on here and become a member. Then he can talk to all of us and find out all the benefits/downfalls. Im sure we would all be happy to help.
