Opinions on tripping after work -- Help from the experienced needed
    #4565252 - 08/22/05 01:45 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Hey you guys. This coming week I am planning to take 2.5 grams for my first time. Although I'm quite excited about the journey ahead, I also have a few questions regarding the timing of the trip. Since I can only read information, I can't know exactly how it specifically effects people, only that which is based on mood. I am forced to work from 11am to 9pm on Friday, which is the day I was planning to shroom with my step brother (I've referenced him in previous posts).

Now, would you reccomend shrooming the day after (saturday) instead of Friday due to my work? (This may be tough for you. I should say I don't dislike my work, nor do I come from it in a bad mood, really. It can be strenuous at times and I'm usually tired coming home depending on what certain task I did and I tend to really hate customers that come in [I work in a buffet where I have to stock, cut pizza, answer phones, run the register, and then bus peoples tables] but I don't find it to continue on outside of work). I do want to hear what your opinions is on the matter, that would help a whole lot.

Do you figure that if I'm tired after work I shouldn't do it?

It'll be all good as long as you feel like you want to trip when you eat em. Enjoy!

Are you working on Monday? If so, I'd say trip on saturday. Even if (and here's hoping!) the trip goes well, it can be extremely mentally and physically taxing, and you might want a day to recover before putting in an all day shift.

up to you, see how you feel. if you aren't tired during the trip, you will probably want to stay up after, so it may messup your sleeping some. i also suggest you start with 1.5 grams and take the rest after 1.5 hours if necessary. this way, you can see how you respond to shrooms and how potent they are. enjoy (as i know you will).

I always feel shrooms relax me, I don't see why doing them after work would be a problem? I know when I was first gonna try mushies I was very excited to get started, so I bet you wanna do them. Since you want to do them you should do them, because you are looking forward to doing it the trip should be very enjoyable.

I made a grave mistake originally before I editted my post. I can trip either on Friday or on Satrday. Sunday is out of the question. I appreciate the advice you guys have given so far. I would still like a few more opinions on the matter to get a whole well-rounded 'second-opinion'.

I work long hours also. I will usually trip on Friday nights, even if I don't make it home till 10 or 11. I always like Saturday to recover and Sunday to get anything that I have to get accomplished on the weekend accomplished. I always feel that if I trip on Saturday and recover on Sunday that the weekend was a waste.

Just my 2 cents. Everyone will say something different.

I tripped once on a Friday after work. I had been up since 06:00 and finished work at 17:30. I ate the mushrooms at about 21:00, and I definitely wouldn't do it again. I don't have a physically demanding job, I just sit behind a computer all day, but nevertheless, I felt physically tired during the trip, like my body wanted me to sleep whilst my mind wanted me to stay awake. I felt so tired that I got worried that I was closing my eyes too hard and all sorts of other irrational thoughts. I felt like I couldn't grasp the trip and take hold of it, almost like it was there waiting for me, but I was looking into it from the outside.

I posted a full trip report about in on this forum somewhere.

like I said...
Everyone will have something diff rent to say on this subject. Best thing to do is see how you personally feel Friday. If you feel good eat them. If you are wore out eat them Saturday. The only real way to know how your body will react is to experiment.

Be sure to write back after the trip and tell us how it went..

I tripped my first time after an 8 hour shift and we didn't start until 10:30 or 11 p.m. So after not getting home and to sleep till around 4 or 4:30, i had to get up at 11:30 to get ready to be at work that afternoon at 1. So it can be done.

Thank you for your very astute advice, everyone. I guess I'll have to take what's been said into consideration and see how I feel Friday night. I hope everything can work out well, but I guess I don't really mind doing it on Saturday... but I've been waiting a year and a half to do them, the extra day seems like an eternity.

if you feel good Friday do them. 2.5 grams is not a large dose. You should only trip about 4 hours. Sleep should be pretty easy to attain and there should be very minimal affects on Saturday. Best of luck

it's funny i have the same option, either after work on friday or saturday day. i'm planning on saturday, i think it's best to be rested, have a clear mind and besides you'll want to fast. :smile: but i'm planning on taking a higher dose. so like everybody else said, see how you feel on friday, if you feel good, do it :smile:
have fun i know i will.

Holy crap. You just reminded me that it is going to be next to impossible to fast on Saturday, which is something I hold in high regard.

The situation is me going to my moms house next weekend, like I do every other weekend... still.. even though I'm 18, so me and my step brother (Note: Best friend) can shroom. If I didn't have to work for 10 hours on Friday, there would have been no question, that would have been the day. But, since I do, I'm not sure if I'm going to be up for it.

If I do it Friday, I can fast, very easily. But, if I do it Friday, I have to worry about being physically tired (maybe not sleepy, but my bones and muscles being worn out) and also dealing with some of the slight pressures, strains and irritations with the job.

If I do it Saturday it will be next to impossible to fast since my mom already thinks I'm anorexic (I lost 50 pounds over the last year, bringing me down to 170. She, I guess, consideres this anorexic) and she gives mentions it to me sometimes. And the weekends are so food-centered -- everything kind of revolves around whats for dinner or whats for lunch.


More difficulty ensues.

well i wouldn't worry about being physically tired as much as getting yourself in the right mental frame of mind.
i've already changed my mind! i'm switching to friday. :wink:
i just can't wait another day. hehe. fasting is important, esp if you are taking a relatively low dose.
but the most important thing is don't stress yourself out!

You've been a big help. And, I must say, your choice of icon is fantastic.
