How old were you guys when you first tripped?

When would you say the right age is to start? :mushroom2:

I was 18. And also, I'm pretty sure this is the wrong forum for that question.

13 for my first trip, 14 when I started tripping on a regular basis, age has nothing to do with it, I was working full time to help support my family
and attending school at that point.

i think age is significant.
i believe all experiance causes growth and experiancing something impossible in reality allows a person to grow in ways that are otherwise not possible.
im not saying that tripping will make a person wiser
but it allows the possibility to exist by widening the vector for growth.

the better the timing fo the first trip the bigger the potential benifits.
the best, most effective time to effect any kind of system or process
is at the beginning.
so the best time to have your first trip would be at the point where one starts to take an active hand in the development of his/her personality.
this would be the teenage years for most peaple.

what yall think?

oh yeah i was 15...

I don't think you want to do it when you're really young. I mean..I dunno. When I was 13, I was pretty content. I had no real problems. I just played video games, went to school (that still sucked), hung out with my friends. Life was life. I was happy.

I was 18. Freshman in college, tripped with my roommate. It was pretty magical. I was ready for something new. Drinking is just drinking, it's fun but..eh. I was looking for a thrill and I got it.


It's too subjective really, but I wouldn't say real young is good. Get more life under your belt.

i was 17, the drug was acid. best trip of my life so far.

there's a thread discussing 'the right age to start' just a couple of pages down:

16, shared an eighth with an experienced friend. He ate most of it because I didn't want to jump into it too deep at first.

i'm with shulgins about that issue,
18 is perfect,
but 16 sometimes 15 years old teens can also handle real psychedelic experience imo.

The Grey family says that under a certain age it isn't a good idea to start using psychedelics. I don't know if they specified what age, but their arguement was that psychedelics, being as they are ego-dissolving substances, shouldn't be used until a person has really grown and formed an ego.

I also took LSD for the first time at 17 like a couple others mentioned, and it was the best trip of my life.

My first was at 16, I feel it all depends on the maturity of the individual. I think I was ready for it and I have learned a lot since.

I read in a Rolling Stone article that a daughter of one of the Dead, I think Jerry, got into a bag of mushrooms when she was 1 1/2, her mom said that it made her "more communicative". In the same section they talked about someone else in that group getting into acid-spiked Koolaid when they were young, around 2 I think. The article is about the children of rockstars, not sure what month, but it was interesting.

I was 16 too and couldnt agree more. It really depends on the individual. I know 15 yr old people who i would think are ready for psychadelics, and on the other hand i know 20 yr olds who i think are not even close to being ready to try them.
