Tripping and death
    #3674343 - 01/24/05 10:26 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I was planning on eating mushrooms tomorrow, but I just found out that someone I went to school with for 12 years died today from leukemia. He was only 19... I'm sure that if I did trip tomorrow, or any time in the near future I'll be unable to avoid thinking about him for at least part of it, and I'm worried that it'll make the trip turn for the worse. It's so sad, but I'm coping okay now, but I'm afraid that if I did, I wouldn't be able to deal with it. Has anyone had a similar experience, and if so, how long did it take to heal before tripping was "safe"? Thanks, and best wishes.

Well I can see two arguments for and against tripping tomorrow.

Pro: It will allow you to truly feel your feelings of sadness and loss, and perhaps come to terms with them.

Con: It could, as you suggest, lead to a bad trip through hell.

Sometimes bad trips are the most enlightening, but it must be your decision.

Good luck :heart:

i'd wait until you feel that you have dealt with your issues and emotions on it, then the trip will probably help you deal more

otherwise if the emotions are too fresh it might get ugly

thats just me though

Yeah, I agree with Slipknot, it would probably be best to deal with the bulk of the emotions and feelings whilst sober.

it really depends what you want to use them for - for a fun ride you're best off to wait.

Even experienced trippers have a tough time dealing with raw emotions. I know it's something I wouldn't even consider. You'll find time to trip in the future.

For me, mushrooms greatly magnify and enhance whatever feelings I have when I start tripping. When I'm happy-I get really happy, When I'm tired- I get really tired, When I'm scared-I get really scared, When I'm sad-I get really sad. I personally would not trip if I were feeling sad and at a loss, but everyone is different.

I agree with all that's been said, it's probably wisest to wait a while to do them. However, it might be worth thinking about on another trip, once you're more stable. Personally, I have found coming to grips with my own mortality a very enlightening and useful experience. Shrooms can definately help with something like that, once you start to get into ego loss, but as everyone's said you have to be careful with all the raw emotion thoughts like that can generate.
