Tripping alone
    #4055323 - 04/14/05 05:27 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Well im about harvest my first shrooms this weekend and I was planning on doing them with a friend but he got very ill. I really wanna try em ive done shrooms before I think it was only about 1.0-1.5 grams dry but it was really fun experience. so have you ever tripped alone? how was it did you have a bad trip?

I have, and I had to go take my dog for a walk because I didn't want to be alone. It wasn't bad, but I almost had to fight someone, and I was pretty scared.

I was drunk also at the time though, so I can't really tell you what it would be like just tripping.

Hanging out with other friends who are tripping too is very fun... people say lots of funny things.

IMO tripping alone is great, the experience can be directed so much easier than with others around. Sometimes I find that my friends do not want to take a deep introveted trip with me, so in turn I save that for myself.

Get yourself some good music, I recommend Sphongle, I also like tribal drumming and other such meditative music. A few trip toys are great. On my last trip I brought out my 10x handheld lens and examined my herb with it. During this time I was getting flushed with surface patterns alterations and the herb took on the same natural flow, it was quite amazing.

A notepad, sketching pad or coloring book is always fun IMO, good for the comeup and comedown. Also for the comedown if the setting allows and the trip has been particularly intense I like to put on some mountain bike vids, it gets me super stoked to ride and lets me relax :smile:

What is the dosage and setting?

Tripping alone can be very enlightening, as you don't have anyone else around to change your train of thought. just you, god(s), and psilocin. I also find it to be more intense than a group trip, your mind is free to wander and no one is there to stop you. you are free to do whatever your mind tells you.
I wouldnt recommend tripping by yourself though if you plan on taking a heavy dose and have never tripped hard before, you are more likely to go flying into a bad trip due to your loneliness.
I would also recommend taking a light dose and tripping in public (primarily a school enviroment [unless you are the teacher]). It sounds exremely risky, but it really isn't. as long as you take a small dose you won't go too crazy, and no one will even suspect that you are tripping (unless you give them good reason to suspect). Some more observant people might notice that you are acting a little strange, but won't really care (basically it will hardly affect your social life if at all)
Again, i would only recommend this to experienced psychonauts.

tripping alone is different. its just you and your environment, and you can do what you want. great for thinking about stuff. however, i find tripping with friends a lot more enjoyable. conversation is a great thing.

if you do trip alone, do a smallish dose because you've got no one to help you if you get into trouble.

I think that you will be good with 20 grams wet, Im not familiar with the B+ strain sorry.

It sounds like you are going to have an amazing time, good luck and good vibes :smile:

Just one more quick little question I thought I would just post it here rather then starting a new thread. there is fuzzy mycelium growing about half way up the stems should I scrape it off or just eat it?

Just eat the fuzzy myc, or better yet make tea. In my experience B+ is weak.

If you do go out in public, keep in mind that, due to pupil dilation, it might be more apparent to others that you're high than you realize.

It's not a bad idea, if you trip, to have the express purpose of gaining self-knowledge. One way to promote that is with conscious preparation. Like (1) cutting down on stress and caffeine earlier in the day; (2) looking at art and nature; (3) reading religious passages or quotes the day before.

just make sure that wherever you trip you won't have to worry about any inconveniences i.e. parents coming home, siblings, etc.
have some good music picked... i think music while tripping is almost neccesary. i just feel like i can feel the music in my body and its incredible. good luck man and have fun.

Dude..
Tripping alone w/ less than 5g dry is perfectly safe if you've done it before. Over 5g... I'd be careful unless you're very experienced.

I just tripped alone on 3g of ground up shrooms on Wednesday. Very fun. Never had a bad trip

I love tripping alone because nobody is there to talk and ruin ur concentration. I like to just listen to music and focus on visuals.

Never tripped on mushrooms with others. Walked outside for many, and for my last I stayed inside and researched the Shroud of Turing listening to creepy Russian chanting in the dark. Very fun.

Alone is the best, at least in nature or spiritual trips. Then again... I never like people talkin to me at all when I trip.

Wow, that must've been interesting.....I love weird/old/mysterious shit like that, it would be interesting to explore while tripping. I've dropped acid after watching UFO documentaries, and eaten mushrooms after watching stuff about various ancient cultures and monuments (Egyptians, Mayans, Stonehedge, etc.) and after reading some Terence McKenna....both produced very interesting trips, the latter showed me that Terence is right on with some of his theorys.
