Tripping with a cold? Bad Idea right?
    #3560984 - 12/30/04 12:54 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

My friend (literally my friend, not me this time) has a mild cold and wants to trip on New Year's Eve. I've been trying to convince him not to. Has anybody here ever tripped with a cold? Please tell me about the experience so I have some ammo to keep him from doing it. This guy has had to learn things the hard way before, but I'd prefer it not be off of my shrooms.

hmm...I dunno, I wouldn't personally..depends how bad the cold is, I feel that my immune system is lowered when dosing anyway, so, he may wanna give it a miss until all is well again...

having said that, it might be just the jolt his system needs - if in doubt though, I would listen to what my body was telling me...

i tripped with pnuemonia and it was quite possibly the worst experience of my life, you dont get to enjoy it, your body completely focuses on the fact that your sick, though i did purge most of the fluid out of my lungs whilst tripping, it was just a shitty experience, sitting on my deck all day playing with a huge pile of snot.

that's what i tried telling him. your mind focuses on the pain. I tripped once after I had crashed my bike. I felt alright before taking it, my arm was a little bruised up but I was ok. When the shrooms hit me all I could focus on was the massive pain in my arm. it literally amplified the pain so much I had thought that I broke it. shitty.

I had a cold on Monday. On Tuesday I tripped. During my trip my cold disappeared. Completely cleared up. I blew all kinds of shit out of my face and hacked up all kinds of stuff from my lungs. Cleared it up.

thats the other thing i wa saying, not so much that it sucks becuase your body and mind focuses on the fact that your sick or hurt but more like your body and mind seem to dedicate a lot more energy to the healing process, that could be good or bad i guess, depending on which angle you are facing.

Just the other day my friend was recovering from being pretty sick a 103 fever and dosed a high amount of DXM he said he went sigma he died and came back to life. Im not sure but maybe being sick messes with your tolerance cuz hes dosed that much before without such a crazy intense trip but I dunno.

i had the flu and some a few g's, it was a nice trip but the bodyload seemed to be alot more overwhleming, my body didnt feel healthy, the sickness seemed to play some role in my trip, it was nice but its more worth it to wait a few days when your body is nice and rested

Shrooms, in the mesoamerican cultures have been used in the past for purposes of healing. I have definatley experianced this effect firsthand.

I've undergone a gastric bypass, and there was litterally thousands of micro-stitches holding my new stomach and bypass intestines together. I'm about 9 months out as of right now.

My last trip I remember connecting to the astral plane, and connecting to the higher consciousness we all belong to and return to. The "entity(s)" (there was more than one, but they were all the same) were very interested in what I had done to my body.

I could feel someone (not myself) poking around at my insides. I could hear "wispers" of millions of voices, some of them going, "ohhh i see.." and "ahhhh". Some were going, "what did you do in here..?" I remember being conveyed the message (not through words so much) that I was now "healed" inside, and I shouldn't have any more problems in terms of complications in the future.

It was a very powerful and moving experiance. This is the first time I have ever shared it with anyone outside of my circle of tripping friends.

i tripped on a cold once - not bad at all, really - i was coughing like i normally would, but the shrooms made me feel like i couldn't stop or that i may throw up or something, but that was only when the shrooms were at their peak - but it did not affect my trip at all. it was amazing. PS. runny noses are kinda fucked up, though.

i tripped yesterday and i had a runny nose, congestion, and mild cough. i was out in the mud and rain on a few hour long hike and wasn't really bothered at all. if the cold is minor it shouldn't be a problem.

i tripped on cid a few times when i had a cold recently and i ate some shrooms with a cold pretty recently too. with the shrooms, i just felt a bit colder than i usually would and with both i really didnt feel that i had a cold at all, except for my nose running when i went outside in the cold (i was in buffalo at the time, so thats normal). the last time i did cid i got really congested and had a drip, it was uncomfortable at first, but i dealt with it.

one time i had a really bad cold and i sing and play guitar in a band so i was really pissed cause i had a show that night and my voice was so fucked up..I took some medecine throughout the day, drank a few green teas and dosed 2 grams before we played and i went from not being able to talk to singing just fine in a few hours. The mushrooms actually killed the cold completely.
