Worried about having a bad trip
    #3459574 - 12/07/04 02:31 PM (12 years, 4 days ago)

Ok guys, the other week I had a bad trip, and am planning on having another one with my mates around New Years. The only problem is I have this little voice in the back of my head that says 'What if you have another bad trip?'. Im worried that if I go into a trip thinking that then it will turn into a bad one. Any advice guys?

My advice to you is, don't worry about it. Worry about having a bad trip is asure fire way of having another bad trip. Relax, go with the flow, listen to good tunes on your trip. Smile, don't worry :smile:.

gdman, you ever had a bad trip? If you did, how did you recover from it?

I have had bad trips, I try to change my setting, turn on/off the lights, change tunes, go outside, go inside, etc. Sometimes that helps, the best way to avoid one is to not worry about it. Sometimes trips that aren't so fun are benificial, keep that in mind to... but it's all in your head, relax.

I never really like to do this (and I really haven't ever) but if your trip is just so terrifying that you can't deal, and nothing can help, take a small dose of benzos as a last resort though. Some people recomend that, I don't really, I'm big on riding your trips out, but if you ahve to it can help.

The best thing you can do, without involving other drugs, is a setting change, I think you'll be ok.

yeah its all about you mind setting going into the trip, if your busy dwelling on the last bad trip you had nothings gonna come of the next trip but a bad one. just wait till your in the right mood to eat them, let everything just flow and think about the brighter sides of anything that happens. When i have a bad trip it usually is because i go in thinking of the last bad trip i had or i start thinking about something going on in my life i wish i could change and then it depresses me because i haven't. But as gdman said your gonna learn more from the bad trips most of the time, and that's one way of looking at the positive side of things and also helps to ease some of the stress and anxiety of a bad trip. good luck with it man, and just make sure the setting is right and a good time with it, think positive.

there like xanax or klonopins, benzo is short for a chem thats in the pills, there for stress and anxiety and other things of that nature, they work good to just slow you down and help you ease ut of the bad trip, they do work good but i dont recomend it, i mean lots of people take them including myself but they are habbit forming and can kill you if abused.

Valium, Xanax, Ativan, etc. they are minor tranquilizers used for anxity, insomina, etc.

I doubt I would bother with benzos. I think that having a bad trip means that if I have another one, i'll know that it has happened before and that it will end.

I think part of the reason I had a bad trip was because as soon as I had just ingested the shrooms, someone on msn said something to me that was in a way offensive. That started me off worrying and thats how the bad trip came about.

Next trip I should have all of my friends around, so it will be amazing.

Take it with the mind set that its just another fun and good times drug.
I find that when i take shrooms thinking "oh man, these drugs are heavy duty, spiritual, kick your ass, alien invador mind alterers"! What ends up happening is they become kick you in the ass spiritual bombardments.
But when i'm with friends, in a "getting drunk" sort of mood and setting...my trips tend to be really fun and colorful, and i dont get bogged down by my preconceptions of it being a heavy duty hallucinogen for inner space.

Hope that helps :smile:

dont ever go into a trip thinking you'll will have a bad one. that just causes the whole night to be fucked up. best advice; not worry about your trip. go into to the trip believing it will be a good one and sit back relax, and just have fun. a clear mind helps also.

I say, just eat your shroomz or cid, then partake in some activity and try to forget that you ate it while you come up. :mushroom2:

Try smoking a bowl and throwing in a favorite CD, it'll take your mind off of thinking on that bad trip so much.

It's going to be such a great trip!  :thumbup: :thumbup:
You'll have a blast..

yea ive found that no matter what happens, music, some killer bud are a sure way of having a blast..if your mind ever takes that spiral inward and you cant escape your own thoughts just start playing along with the music/ or singing.....or just listen and imagine a video in your head to go along with the music...seriously try it sometime. everything else just melts away.
take that shit to tha bank....
later bro
