Hey folks (another newbie) & acid vs shrooms question
    #4303071 - 06/16/05 12:01 PM (12 years, 14 days ago)

Hey everyone!

Just discovered shroomery.org today, and am really impressed by the community here, so thought I would register and say hi =)

I am a 19 year old australian engineering student and am really excited about trying shrooms for the first time. Hopefully in about a month from now, I am still doing my research.

Only other real experience with drugs has been drinking, smoking too much damn weed (love the stuff), and just recently having tried E for the first time. E absolutely blew me away, had the time of my life, but I would like to try something different. As much as I love dancing my way around a party with a cigarette in one hand, water bottle in the other, giving hugs and chats left right and centre, it just isnt really me - I am a bit more relaxed and anti-social than that :wink:

I was tossing up between acid and shrooms, but am leaning mainly towards shrooms at this point.

Anyone have any comments on which is more appropriate for me? For a little background, I get some mild anxiety and paranoia when stoned sometimes, and I am shit scared of having a bad trip, even if I am with experienced friends. Also, I am looking for more of a relaxed, chatty, happy feeling, not some mind-fuckingly intense trip through the cosmos. So, yeah, I was thinking shrooms would be a better choice than acid, but any suggestions?

Cheers, and thanks for reading this long post,

Clam  :cool:

mushrooms can be quite intense, just as intense as LSD - you can easily freak out on both especially if you already have problems with anxiety and do not have the proper mindset.

you should be less concerned with "acid vs. mushrooms" and more concerned with dose and set/setting of either substance.

Welcome, the Shroomery is a great place, especially once you get to know your way around here.


I'd agree, a low dose of shrooms sounds like the best place to start. Having fear of a bad trip is certainly a healthy thing, but it also helps to accept where the trip is going, and most importantly remember "it's just a ride". Bad trips often occur when something psychological rises up, but this can be extremely theruputic if handled right. Always remember that no matter what, the trip will be over in a matter of time.

But don't let this make the shroom experience seem like its doomed to go bad. Especially at lower doses, shrooms can be a very managable experience.

The Shroomery Wiki is a good place to start: http://www.shroomery.org/wiki/pmwiki.php


--------------------
The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

thanks heaps for the advice =)

Ecstacy definitely helped me understand the importance of mindset and environment on how much fun you are going to have with a drug, so it's good to hear it is the same with shrooms. By the time I trip I hope to have a nice afternoon/evening planned out. Even if I trip heavier than expected and all the plans go out the window it will certainly be comforting to have.

I think shrooms would fit your personality the bestest. Acid is way too evil and dark. Just plain mean.

I tend to get a gritty strung out feeling on acid.

I enjoy both mushrooms and acid but I'm glad I tried mushrooms first.  I've only had a bad trip once and it was on LSD, but I'm sure there are some out there who've only had a bad trip on mush.  I say go with a low dose of mushrooms to start.  :sun:

I always feel like im greasy when I'm tripping. All over. I hate that "Did I shit my pants" feeling, while tripping. I never have of course... but the feeling.
