Afraid to dose.......
    #4180234 - 05/15/05 11:26 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I have only used shrooms about 4-6 times. The first couple of times were.....well, mind-blowing. The last couple of times were.......well, disturbing....to say the least. I think the last few were rough because I was using them just to get high.

I have had the urge to dose again but I am a little nervous, for a few reasons....


1. Things have been going pretty shitty, financially, lately.(lost a job and had shoulder surgery)
2. I would have to dose alone (no one lives near that uses.)
3. I don't have a good place to go.


I was cleaning up my closed about 3-4 months ago, and found 5 grams. I saw this as a sign that it was time to dose (its been over a year since I last dosed).

I just haven't felt comfortable enuf yet to take them. Things are getting better financially, but Im still not sure where to go. I told my wife that I wouldn't trip around her. And....my last few trips that went bad, I was tripping alone at home. Im thinking about going out one night and setting my telescope up.....then dosing. I just don't want to freak out in the dark by myself....

Or meditating at home with some good tunes....


I just cant make up my mind as to HOW I want to go about dosing...that will have the best chance for a good trip

Should I.....

A) wait

B) eatem now at home w/tunes

C) take my 'scope out and eatem

See, I thought about that. I also have to say that my first few doses were....um, large. We didnt know shit about dosing. We were just walking thru the fields picking cubies, got a shit load of them.

We each ate about 8-12 medium-large sized shrooms. (about 100-150 wet grams each). I had a freaking BLAST.

The few doses that went kinds bad were on much lower doses 3-4 small-medium shrooms,

I have wondered if the smaller doses, after using such a large dose the first few times, may have contributed to the uneasyness of the trips??????

For most its the exact opposite buddy. I'd also have to say, that you should wait until you're comfortable. If you've been able to wait this long, you can wait a little longer until you're spiritually ready. I'm pulling for you man. Hopefully you can make it thorough your troubles man.

yea....lots of things are backwards w/me :smile:

The thing is ...with all the shit that has been going on in my personal life.....my stress levels have remained surprisingly low. Kinda like I knew all this was going to happen, I just have to ride it out.

I'm in a place where I have to decide which direction I want my life to go.

1)should I try to go back to school
2)should I get another job in a factory
3)should I try to take my former employer to court

I am drawing unemployment now....but that wont last, and I don't know what I want to do/where I need to go.

I'm thinking hard about meditating and dosing. Try to focus on what direction I should take.

I don't think you need to dose to meditate on this at all. I would suggest meditating on a direction to go in your life, and once you come to the decision then dose. You might end up just regretting the feeling you get with so much uncertainty- it could be a depressing trip. But once you make a decision then you will feel happy about the direction you are going and it would be a better time. My advice would be to wait but I know I have not taken my own advice and had some shitty trips. Good luck with your decision though, either way things will be ok.

I'd say those are some legitament reasons not to dose right now.  Especially if those three items above are sources of great anxiety for you, and you believe that they might lend negative vibes to your trip. 

On the other hand, I've tripped at home, alone, in a bad time of my life and gained an experience that helped to put things in perspective.  And had a good time to boot. 

I'd say as long as your head was in the right place, then all that other stuff can be managed.  Tripping alone can be very enjoyable (nobody to worry about but you), and tripping at home is as fun as you want to make it.  Lost your job/struggling financially...sure that sucks, but it's also a great reason to concentrate on building anew, going upwards, turning over a new leaf or refreshing your soul. 

It's all how you look at your situation that makes the difference.  Take a few days to prepare, clear your head of all stressers, find your internal center, and nurture peacefulness in yourself.  It's there if you let all the worries and other stuff go.  :heart: 

I think that if you shoot for the stars, you'll make it there. 

Good luck, with whatever you decide.

Wait a while till your mind gets totally soberized. It usually takes me 2-3 months. And also wait till your life has some stability. Also you might try an easier psychedelic like a pheny in the future if shrooms have been difficult.

Yeah, and only trip with people you trust. It sounds like tripping under your circumstances would be pretty risky.

See...thats it...Im not having a lot of anxiety over these issues.
I meditate often and kinda saw these things comming. Its like Im just watching these things play themself out, and its not bothering me as much as I thought it would.
